Orange and Netskope partner for carrier-grade connectivity and SSE services for a secure and intelligent cloud platform

PARIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Orange Business Services, a global network-native digital services company, Orange Cyberdefense, a leading provider of cybersecurity services, and Netskope, a leader in Secure Access Service (SASE), are joining forces to deliver a new SSE (Security Service Edge) integrated into the Orange Telco cloud platform. The enhanced solution is designed to deliver optimal performance with maximum security, meaning businesses will no longer need to compromise between the two.

A decade of transition to cloud and mobile computing, along with the pervasive demands of hybrid work environments, has put security and networking requirements on a collision course. As SSE addresses security challenges, enterprises must integrate them into overall connectivity strategies to take full advantage of SASE.

The partnership will leverage Orange Cyberdefense’s security expertise, private cloud’s global security footprint and Netskope’s HSE leadership, enabling Orange Business Services to deliver consistent internet security across and out of the network. This will help protect enterprise customers against data loss and the growing volume of sophisticated cloud, web and private app threats, with all the attributes of a cloud-native platform.

The co-managed solution will reduce complexity for businesses, by providing continuously updated cloud security through the Orange Business Services Telco cloud platform. Telco Cloud Platform is a revolution in the way networks are built, run and managed with improved performance. The software-defined approach optimized for telecommunications workloads enables greater agility and reduced costs.
