Netskope, a leader in Secure Access Service Edge (SASE), today announced new integrations with Zoom Video Communications, Inc. (Zoom) that connect Netskope's Borderless SD-WAN and SaaS Security Posture Management (SSPM) with Zoom UCaaS to deliver one of the most reliable, optimized connectivity and enhanced security solutions for effective user collaboration. Through these Netskope integrations, organizations using Zoom can now significantly enhance the user experience while staying compliant with privacy and security regulations.
Unified-communications-as-a-service (UCaaS) users often struggle with low reliability, high latency, and network disruption, all of which limit worker productivity. In addition, organizations face security challenges, including risks coming from users and sites that communicate directly over the internet, compliance with critical privacy regulations, and the complexity and inefficiency present in many branch and remote access solutions.
To solve these challenges, Netskope Borderless SD-WAN enables highly reliable, optimized access to Zoom by automatically identifying and prioritizing Zoom connections, and improving network performance with on-demand remediation. Netskope also simplifies remote maintenance of Zoom Phone behind Netskope SASE Gateway with built-in secure inbound access service. In addition, Netskope SaaS Security Posture Management (SSPM) continuously monitors Zoom environments to discover and remediate any misconfigurations that could weaken security, helping maintain compliance with industry standards and regulations.
"As a world leading UCaaS provider, Zoom continues to prioritize security coupled with a seamless user experience to make sure that our customers realize the productivity they need, whenever and wherever work happens," said Brendan Ittelson, Zoom CTO. "Zoom can deliver top-notch connection, performance, and security in partnership with Netskope's fully converged, context-aware SD-WAN and SSPM."
Optimizing Zoom connectivity
Netskope Borderless SD-WAN helps ensure highly reliable, optimized access to Zoom and delivers consistent high-performance access for users working from home, or from a branch office, or from a non-office location such as a coffee shop. As part of the Netskope platform, Borderless SD-WAN employs a unique approach to deliver high-quality performance while simplifying overall operations. Netskope Borderless SD-WAN:
Provides full visibility and ML-driven insights with application and real-time path monitoring
Includes Netskope quality of experience (QoE) smart defaults for over 60,000 applications, and automatically identifies and prioritizes Zoom sub-applications
Improves Network performance with on-demand remediation, sub-second failover, and cloud-onramp to Zoom
Simplifies remote maintenance of Zoom Phone behind Netskope SASE Gateway with built-in secure inbound access service
Provides unified policy with a consistent experience for users across remote users, branches, and multi-cloud
Maximizing Zoom performance with consistent QoE
Netskope Borderless SD-WAN can easily identify Zoom Meeting, Zoom Phone, and Zoom Room connectors among traffic from tens of thousands of different workloads regularly egressing from an organization's network. Netskope offers smart defaults that automatically prioritize traffic and minimize latency, jitter, and loss to deliver consistent quality of experience. Netskope Borderless SD-WAN also ensures application performance without compromising payload security, even over a single, unstable broadband internet connection.
Strengthening security posture and maintaining compliance
Tight integration with Zoom APIs enables Netskope SSPM to provide visibility and insights into configuration settings, compliance status, and security posture. Netskope SSPM supports a broad collection of rules and compliance standards out-of-the-box, as well as the ability to add custom rules based on the data that Netskope gathers about connected Zoom accounts. Compliance administrators can modify and deploy policies to detect violations based on popular benchmarks and standards such as CIS, HIPAA, PCI, CSA, GDPR, AIPCA, ISO, and more. Security alerts include actionable remediation instructions to quickly bring Zoom deployments back into compliance and close any remaining security gaps.
"Like so many organizations, we rely on Zoom communications for daily business use and productivity," said Timothy Johnson, Assistant Vice President of ITS Operations, A.T. Still University. "The ability to maintain security, maximize the user experience, and minimize disruptions caused by latency, jitter, and loss between users and apps on unstable links with advanced remediation capabilities of Netskope's Borderless SD-WAN solution are what this compelling integration between Netskope and Zoom expertly delivers."
"Together, Netskope and Zoom provide organizations with the ability to deliver the collaboration experience users are expecting, while doing it in a secure way that does not interrupt business and helps them stay compliant with industry standards and regulations," said Parag Thakore, Senior Vice President, Borderless SD-WAN, Netskope. "We are proud to work with Zoom and together look forward to a continued expansion of how our solutions integrate."
Netskope, a global SASE leader, is redefining cloud, data, and network security to help organizations apply zero trust principles to protect data. Fast and easy to use, the Netskope platform provides optimized access and real-time security for people, devices, and data anywhere they go.

StorMagic®, solving the world’s edge data problems, today announced continued momentum with manufacturing end users with the addition of two new Germany-based customers. StorMagic SvSAN is a simple, two-node virtual SAN that manages data and its associated applications, to ensure customers’ main objective – productivity.
“Manufacturers require IT systems that deliver built-in redundancy and high availability to ensure continuous operations and, ultimately, productivity to keep their businesses running,” said Bruce Kornfeld, chief marketing and product officer, StorMagic. “SvSAN eliminates single points of failure and downtime to keep factories and plants operational and efficient.”
StorMagic ensures production uptime through high availability, reliability and performance, at a low cost, and is helping two German manufacturers in this endeavor.
WST previously used DataCore SANsymphony to store application data from various databases, file services, and telecommunication systems. Mounting costs and inadequate performance as the volume of data increased led them to review all-flash disk systems at two of their production facilities. SvSAN was selected due to its ability to support all the applications required at these sites with ease of use, minimal hardware requirements and high uptime.
“WST was able to significantly reduce costs and add 100 percent uptime between our two datacenters by moving to StorMagic SvSAN,” said Alexandra Körner, head of IT, WST Präzisionstechnik GmbH. “We’ve also been able to eliminate vendor lock-in thanks to SvSAN’s compatibility with all storage types, hardware and hypervisors. Our future costs have been significantly reduced without sacrificing performance, and budgets are now much more predictable, and easier to plan.”
Witholz GmbH previously used a physical SAN for data processing and management in its two datacenters. The company urgently needed a solution that provided high availability to store application data from its entire IT environment. Witholz found that StorMagic SvSAN was the ideal solution as it was very easy to install and use, and offered the highest performance for the price.
“StorMagic SvSAN is a ‘set and forget’ solution that delivers the best price for performance point in today’s market, and is an ideal fit for every small to medium-sized enterprise," said Matthias Böhler, CEO, Witholz GmbH. “SvSAN allowed us to maximize our budget and achieve 100 percent uptime, which lets us sleep more soundly at night.”
StorMagic is solving the world’s edge data problems. We help organizations store, protect, and use their data at and from the edge. StorMagic’s Forever Data solutions ensure data is always protected and available, no matter the type or location, to provide value anytime, anywhere. StorMagic’s storage, surveillance and security products are flexible, robust, easy to use and cost-effective, without sacrificing enterprise-class features, for organizations with one to thousands of sites.
