Netskope, making its first appearance at CITE Conference, launched from stealth in October 2013 with $21 million in funding from The Social+Capital Partnership and Lightspeed Venture Partners. Earlier this year, the company announced Netskope Active, the industry’s only platform that provides context-aware cloud data loss prevention (DLP), encryption, and anomaly detection in real time for any cloud app, whether the app is sanctioned by IT or not.

Most recently, Netskope provided the industry with a list of enterprise cloud apps vulnerable to the Heartbleed Bug. Starting with a count of 100 apps, Netskope tracked remediation efforts on a daily basis. In addition, research from Netskope revealed that 88% of the cloud apps that remained vulnerable to Heartbleed were not considered enterprise-ready according to Netskope’s Cloud Confidence Index. The research demonstrates the direct tie between remediation and enterprise-readiness.
