Skyhigh Networks has launched its Cloud Security Technology Partner Program - designed to help partners to capitalise on opportunities and provide customers with advanced cloud security solutions.

The Skyhigh cloud access security broker (CASB), delivers visibility, compliance, data security, and threat protection capabilities across 17,000+ cloud services. With the Skyhigh Cloud Security Partner Program, enterprises can integrate the Skyhigh CASB with their current and planned security investments for comprehensive and integrated deployments.

According to the Gartner Market Guide for Cloud Access Security Brokers by Craig Lawson, Neil MacDonald, and Brian Lowans, published in October 2015, “CASBs provide a number of critical points of integration with the environment, and these integration points play an important role in preventing enterprise security delivery from becoming yet another silo.

“CASB integration points cover identity and access management (IAM) integration; reuse of data security policies for the cloud; and event integration with technologies such as security information and event management (SIEM) for a single view of an organisation's security events, plus support for a number of existing security processes such as incident response.

Skyhigh Networks has formalised partnerships with over 20 leading vendors across the following categories: next generation firewall (NGFW), cloud and on-premises proxies, user behaviour analytics (UBA), threat protection, identity as a service (IDaaS), identity and access management (IAM), data loss prevention (DLP), security information and event management (SIEM), mobile device management (EMM/MDM), key management and digital rights management (DRM).

“The Skyhigh Cloud Security Partner Program was designed based on direct feedback from enterprise customers and provides a fast track to implementing best-in-class cloud security solution while maximising the value of their existing technology investments,” says Chris Cesio, Skyhigh Networks vice-president of business development and channels.

“Customers gain a proven blueprint to protect their data in the cloud era that has been proven at more than 500 enterprises,” he says.

At present, Skyhigh has partnered with Bay Dynamics, BitSight, Centrify, Checkpoint, Cisco, Cyphort, Exabeam, Gemalto, HPE, IBM, Ionic, Juniper Networks, LogRhythm, Microsoft, MobileIron, Okta, OneLogin, Ping Identity, Titus Labs, Vera, VMware, and Zscaler.
