Okta, CrowdStrike, Netskope and Proofpoint partner to implement security strategy

Okta, CrowdStrike, Netskope, and Proofpoint today announced the companies are coordinating to help organizations implement an integrated, zero trust security strategy required to protect today’s dynamic and remote working environments.

Okta, CrowdStrike, Netskope, and Proofpoint are enabling security and IT professionals with the knowledge and integrated product solutions they need to manage security for distributed work environments which are quickly becoming permanent due to the pandemic. The companies will offer integrated solutions, advanced insights, and reference architectures, in addition to the implementation of 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, organizations 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.

“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.” said Amol Kulkarni, Chief Product Officer, CrowdStrike.

“People are the primary targets for attackers, especially as more users are working remotely,” said Ryan Kalember, Executive Vice President of Cybersecurity Strategy, Proofpoint. “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.”

“Netskope’s security cloud platform provides unrivalled visibility and real-time data and threat protection when accessing cloud services, websites, and private apps from anywhere, on any device. And we’ve extended our value to customers through integrations with best-of-breed partners to protect endpoint devices and intelligently extend identity-based governance and compliance.” said Lamont Orange, Chief Information Security Officer, Netskope.
