Everton FC will use Netskope’s software to protect its confidential cloud data.
From contract negotiations and players’ medical information to personal details belonging to the global fan base, the Premier League club needed a solution that would keep its highly sensitive data secure in the cloud and ensure personal information remained private.
By using its Active Platform, Netskope says Everton FC now has complete visibility into cloud usage and the ability to react immediately to keep data secure, mitigating cloud security risks and reducing regulatory exposure.
According to the vendor, its platform uses using patented technology to analyse all cloud services (sanctioned and unsanctioned) for all employees, whether on premises or remote. It then provides complete visibility into what data are being stored and shared in the cloud, and the activities occurring within those cloud services.
“Netskope’s forward-thinking technology enables us to proactively identify risks and protect data so we can rest assured that players’ and fans’ sensitive data is protected in the cloud,” says Phil Davies, ICT manager, Everton FC. “Its deep cloud visibility capability and risk dashboard ensures we can accelerate our move to the cloud in a safe way – while demonstrating compliance with the GDPR.”
