As part of the acquisition, Sift's CEO Neil King will join Netskope and ensure that development of Cloud Hunter continues alongside the evolution of Netskope Security Cloud.

He explained that joining Netskope will allow the platform's capabilities to grow and alongside the functionalities of Netskope Security Cloud, it will present a unique offering to customers via a single interface and across devices.

"Four years ago we set out to build a security solution that could detect, correlate, visualize and automatically respond to threats in infrastructure-as-a-service environments like AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud Platform," said King.

"We're excited to combine those capabilities into the market-leading Netskope Security Cloud. Sanjay and team have an unmatched vision for the future of the security market, and we could not be happier to partner with Netskope as part of Sift's next chapter."
