Okta, CrowdStrike, Netskope, Proofpoint partner to secure remote work
Equip security and IT professionals the knowledge and integrated product solutions they need to manage security for distributed work environments
Okta, CrowdStrike, Netskope, and Proofpoint have announced the companies are coordinating to help organisations implement an integrated, zero trust security strategy required to protect today’s dynamic and remote working environments.
With this steop, the companies will offer security and IT professionals the knowledge and integrated product solutions they need to manage security for distributed work environments which are quickly becoming permanent due to the pandemic.
Together, these technologies represent four solutions that form the core pillars of a modern, comprehensive security architecture. The companies will offer integrated solutions, advanced insights, and reference architectures, in addition to implementation best practices, accounting for end-user, device, network, and data security, demonstrating the fundamental components of a modern zero trust approach.
“By further enhancing our integrations with CrowdStrike, Netskope, and Proofpoint, organisations of any size can benefit from a complete understanding of how to implement a modern, identity-centric, zero trust security ecosystem to meet their immediate needs accelerated by the pandemic, and arguably just as important, to future-proof for what’s ahead,” said David Bradbury, chief security officer, Okta.
Amol Kulkarni, chief product officer, CrowdStrike, said: “CrowdStrike’s Falcon platform was purpose-built in the cloud to allow customers to easily and remotely deploy, manage, and protect their workloads at scale irrespective of where their workforce is located. We are proud to partner with cloud leaders Okta, Proofpoint, and Netskope to assist IT teams in implementing a zero trust strategy that uses the endpoint posture as a critical piece in enabling conditional access and moves beyond the network perimeter to secure dynamic work environments.”
Ryan Kalember, executive vice president of Cybersecurity Strategy, Proofpoint, added “Zero trust helps ensure the compromise of a single user doesn’t turn into a much bigger breach. Our people-centric approach delivers protection against today’s complex people-targeted attacks, defending against phishing, malware, and cloud account compromise. We mitigate the most critical security risks with deep visibility into highly targeted users, as well as provide vital awareness training to build user resilience.”
