History

The software-as-a-service (SaaS) industry is exploding. From Dropbox to Google Drive to Evernote to Salesforce, companies and organizations are faced with an ever-expanding array of cloud-based SaaS applications. The problem with the proliferation of SaaS applications is that these applications are not built with the security and compliance specifications of the businesses and organizations that use them.

For example, a government agency may have very particular compliance and security risk standards that must be matched before a cloud based application can be used within. It was with the aim of mitigating some of the risks associated with cloud software adoption that Netskope was founded.

The company was founded by Sanjay Beri, Lebin Cheng, Ravi Ithal, and Krishna Narayanaswamy in 2012. The firm started with $21.4 million in seed funding. Sanjay Beri remains it CEO. The company did not launch its first product until October 2013. The same month, Netskope announced the formation of its governance board and the appointment of Enrique Salem as its Chairman.

Its Series A round of funding in 2013 attracted $5.5 million. This was followed by $15.9 million in round B, $35 million in round C and $75 million in its most recent round in 2015. Netskope announced in 2014 that it plans to expand internationally, with offices being set up in Europe and India. In the same year, the company also announced that it was expanding its research and design facilities, most of which would be based in India.

The company currently has offices in India, Australia, United Kingdom and Los Altos, California. The company has over 300 employees. In October 2016, Netskope announced that it had reached the milestone of 400 percent year-over-year revenue growth.
