Netskope | September 11, 2023
Netskope, an industry-leading secure access service edge (SASE) provider, has announced that it has been chosen as the preferred cloud access security broker vendor for the Canadian Federal Government under the cybersecurity procurement vehicle (CSPV) of Shared Services Canada (SSC). The objective of the SSC cloud access security broker CSPV is to provide government users with secure access to cloud-based applications, including all software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications, regardless of their location.
The Government of Canada (GC) selected Netskope after a competitive bidding process for a commercially available cloud access security broker service to fulfill its business requirements across various government organizations and agencies.
The cloud access security broker service aims to facilitate the continued adoption, utilization, and delivery of SaaS cloud services by GC departments. The cloud access security broker service will improve the security posture of GC applications, services, and data as they are migrated to public cloud environments, permitting complete visibility and monitoring of GC cloud environments to detect, prevent, and respond rapidly to cyber threats; and ensuring the privacy, confidentiality, and protection of GC data in accordance with GC policies.
As an integral part of Netskope Intelligent Security Service Edge (SSE), Netskope's market-leading cloud access security broker enables agencies to detect and manage the usage of cloud applications rapidly, irrespective of whether they are managed or unmanaged, and safeguard sensitive data from being stolen by malicious cybercriminals or risky insiders who have compromised the technology environment.
A cloud access security broker is a cloud-based or on-premises security policy enforcement point situated between cloud service providers and consumers to combine and insert enterprise security policies when cloud-based resources are accessed. With a cloud access security broker solution, agencies can manage the unintentional or unauthorized transfer of sensitive data between cloud application instances while expediting security workflows with simple policy controls and incident response management.
Paul Tanasi, Federal Regional Manager, Netskope, said,
With the hybrid workforce becoming the new normal, Canadian government departments and agencies are relying more and more on giving their users direct-to-cloud access to SaaS applications and to web applications in general.

Paul Tanasi further mentioned that there is a requirement to ensure these users' security and regain some of the visibility and control they were accustomed to when everyone worked from the office. A solution is required to tackle risks associated with cloud services, enforce security policies, and adhere to regulations, mainly when dealing with cloud services that are located outside their network perimeter and beyond their direct control. Netskope's CASB solution would offer the capability to adopt cloud applications and services confidently without compromising security or performance.
Netskope, an industry leader in SASE, assists organizations in implementing zero trust principles and AI/ML innovations to safeguard data and defend against cyber threats. The company's platform offers optimized access and real-time security for devices, people, and data, regardless of their location. Netskope assists customers in mitigating risk, accelerating application performance, and gaining unparalleled visibility into cloud, web, and private application activity. Thousands of clients rely on Netskope and its robust NewEdge network to combat evolving threats, technology shifts, new risks, organizational and network changes, and others.

The combination of best-of-breed technology partners with the leading enterprise AppSec platform helps organizations shift everywhere, from code to cloud, with a unified AppSec posture integrated into the software development life cycle (SDLC). Checkmarx' Technology Partner Program helps organizations simplify management across their AppSec programs, get more value out of existing AppSec solutions and drive better security outcomes.
Providing broad support for greater AppSec maturity throughout the entire SDLC, the Checkmarx Technology Partner program enables partners and their customers to centralize and simplify discovery in these key areas through Checkmarx One:
Vulnerability and risk management systems: Aggregate, normalize and prioritize vulnerabilities and risks with a unified, holistic view with partners like ArmorCode, Brinqa and ServiceNow.
SDLC tools: Integrate AppSec at all stages of the software development lifecycle within the environments and tools used daily by analysts, developers and testers with partners like GitLab, JetBrains and Security Compass.
Cloud and runtime security: Match cloud assets at runtime with application source code projects so that vulnerabilities found in the developer source code are enriched with runtime context, and runtime cloud security inventories are enriched with AppSec findings – all possible through partners like AWS, Cisco Panoptica and Sysdig.
Emerging technologies: Work with the most innovative startups and technologies including AI and GenAI to shape tomorrow's AppSec solutions landscape with partners like Mobb.ai.
Expanding this ecosystem simplifies the process of mitigating AppSec risk for our partners' customers, making their applications exponentially more secure during a time of escalating threats, said Kobi Tzruya, Chief Research and Development Officer at Checkmarx.
