Optimized performance for international Secucloud Enterprise Solutions customers
Hamburg, Germany. 17 October 2019 – Speed and security: companies need both in order to keep up with their competitors. They can achieve security with a solid infrastructure that runs comprehensive analyses of the data streams being carried over the network, but with no impact on performance. In order to provide customers with both speed and security, the German managed security services provider Secucloud has added two new access points to its Global Cloud Backbone. Located in Asia and Africa, they will enable customers in those regions to benefit from even faster access to Secucloud’s global security infrastructure. The specialist in cloud-based security is also reinforcing its European infrastructure with two additional access points in Germany. These initiatives are a result of Secucloud’s strong growth in international markets and of compliance with Germany’s stringent data protection standards.
With its Secucloud Enterprise Solutions, Secucloud has expanded its range of cloud-based security systems for resellers and business customers. Both can benefit from its managed security service solution with a package of powerful security technologies that they can scale to their needs. And as these technologies are cloud-based, they always stay up to date with no need for any maintenance work by the reseller or customer. Based on a cutting-edge Firewall as a Service (FWaaS), the Secucloud solution protects today’s corporate networks against attacks – in a centralized and efficient way. In addition, the SD-WAN component allows companies to securely interconnect their various locations. Together with the FWaaS and a secure web gateway, the solution ensures the highest level of protection for companies’ sensitive data and valuable intellectual property.
Local access points reduce latency and increase security
The Global Cloud Backbone forms the technological heart of Secucloud Enterprise Solutions. It comprises a dynamic, cloud-based cluster system that synchronizes globally in real time, analyzes network traffic, and transmits it to the relevant location. The launch of the new access points gives customers in Asia and Africa an enhanced connection to the centralized security infrastructure of Secucloud Enterprise Solutions. In this way, companies based in these regions, along with global enterprises with subsidiaries there, benefit from significantly shorter latency times and faster performance in the protection of their network traffic.
Secucloud has also implemented two additional access points in Germany as a result of the ongoing growth of its customer base in central Europe. Along with the performance aspect, data protection legislation is a key reason for Secucloud’s initiative. It ensures that Secucloud Enterprise Solutions customers can specify that their managed security service only uses access points in a particular country. This helps them ensure that their data flows remain for example within Germany and are therefore subject to the stringent security standards in German legislation.
Asia and Africa as promising markets of the future
“The regions of Asia-Pacific and Africa definitely have a place on the global map of promising growth markets,” says Dennis Monner, CEO of Secucloud. “As well as offering a lot of business potential, these markets of the future are also among today’s major innovation drivers. Many of our customers already have subsidiaries and branch offices there or are currently planning expansion into these regions. We’re currently seeing a rapid increase in the data volumes protected against threats by our Secucloud Enterprise Solutions in Asia and Africa – and that’s why we’re responding with the implementation of additional local access points. They will ensure that our growing customer base in promising growth markets like these can use our entire Secucloud Enterprise Solutions portfolio with the best performance and the lowest latency times – and can be sure they’re benefiting from the highest level of protection for their sensitive network traffic.”
