Lookout Extends Partnership With Verizon to Bring Data-Centric Cloud Security to Business Customers

The Lookout Cloud Security Platform enables organizations to safeguard data across the web, cloud and private apps; reduces complexity, costs and management overhead

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 21, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Lookout, Inc., a leading provider of endpoint and cloud security solutions, today announced the expansion of its partnership with Verizon to deliver the Lookout Cloud Security Platform to Verizon business customers. The Lookout Cloud Security Platform helps safeguard an organizations’ data, identify and mitigate threats and facilitates secure access to the web, private apps and cloud services (SaaS) deployed in a multi-cloud environment.

The Lookout Cloud Security Platform Safeguards Data Everywhere It Goes

While cloud connectivity has boosted productivity and collaboration, it has also amplified security gaps as customers continue to use on-premises, appliance-based security solutions. To prevent data leakage and cover security gaps in this work-from-anywhere environment, organizations need a unified cloud-delivered platform that protects users, devices, access and data across all apps and devices from any modern day cyber threats. The Lookout Cloud Security Platform delivers SSE solution combines Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB), Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) and Secure Web Gateway (SWG) natively in a single platform, significantly reducing the complexity, costs and number of security vendors and point solutions an IT department has to manage. It also provides the agility and scalability to keep pace with evolving, increasingly sophisticated threats.

According to Gartner®, “By 2025, 80% of organizations seeking to procure SSE-related security services will purchase a consolidated SSE solution rather than stand-alone CASB, SSE, and ZTNA offerings, up from 15% in 2021.” Earlier this year, Gartner released its 2022 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Security Service Edge in which Lookout has been recognized in the Visionary quadrant.1 The companion 2022 Gartner Critical Capabilities for SSE report ranked Lookout in the top three for all vendors across four predefined Use Cases.2
