Telstra International's Global Managed Security Solutions Powered Up through Netskope Partnership

By Greg Tavarez

We are at a point in the business world where distributed workforces, decentralized applications, external ecosystems and digital interactions are the norm. All great and convenient, sure, except that these things simultaneously expand the attack surface for potential cyber threats.

What is needed is a comprehensive digital trust strategy, such as secure network architectures, robust authentication protocols and data encryption to ensure the confidentiality, integrity and availability of critical information.

Not only does the digital trust strategy mitigate risks, but it also fosters a culture of trust among stakeholders, including employees, clients and partners. Establishing and maintaining digital trust safeguards sensitive information and fortifies the reputation of businesses in an environment where cybersecurity incidents can lead to severe consequences.

In relation to the heightened importance for digital trust, an expanded collaboration emerged between Netskope, a SASE provider, and Telstra International, the global arm of the telecommunications and technology entity Telstra. 

Telstra's global clientele leverages its managed security services to effectively contend with the evolving demands of the digital work environment and counter the persistent and dynamic threats within the cybersecurity landscape.

At the core of Netskope's SASE platform lies a zero trust network and security. This includes SSE technologies like ZTNA, advanced threat and data protection, cloud access security broker, next-generation secure web gateway, cloud firewall and SD-WAN.

This expansion lets Telstra provide organizations worldwide with a comprehensive managed solution incorporating Netskope's cloud-native SASE, which includes Zero Trust Network Access, or ZTNA, services. The architecture of Netskope relies on the NewEdge global network, a security-focused private cloud meticulously designed to deliver unwavering security without compromising performance. This infrastructure ensures rapid and secure access from any geographical location to data, applications and websites, irrespective of their hosting locations.

"Netskope's platform is underpinned by its best-in-class zero trust engine, enabling Telstra International to deliver comprehensive data and application protection, while ensuring an exemplary user experience," said Dave Rogers, Senior Vice President, Global Alliances and Channel Sales, Netskope

Whether organizations operate on a regional scale or span across continents, Telstra International's customers now have the privilege of accessing high level security expertise and resources, thereby ensuring uniform protection and compliance across their operational landscape.

“Netskope's technology was conceived specifically for the challenges our customers face today and we are pleased to have expanded our partnership with an innovative company to elevate our customers' security posture,” said Geraldine Kor, South Asia Managing Director and Head of Global Enterprise at Telstra International.
