As organizations increasingly move mission-critical applications, workloads and business processes to the cloud, there is a growing need to securely integrate cloud capabilities into their business network environments. Kinetic Business is offering Cloud Connect, a reliable, fast and highly secure private access hub that connects directly to third-party public and private cloud service providers through the business’s wide-area network, or WAN.
Cloud Connect improves access, better secures transmission of data, and creates a simpler network architecture to manage. It functions across all network options, with bandwidth capacity ranging from 50 Mbps to 10 Gbps. Cloud Connect is an ideal add-on to an existing SD-WAN, MPLS architecture to complete the business network.
“Today, businesses rely on cloud services, along with remote work solutions that include audio and video conferencing,” said Jeff Lowney, president of strategic accounts for Kinetic Business. “But cloud services are only as strong as the networks that connect them. That’s why we offer this cost-effective, secure, dedicated connectivity that supports business apps and scales as customers add new ones.”
In addition to a fiber-backed network, Kinetic Business offers a strong security portfolio for customers ranging in size from small to enterprise, including: Professional Services, DDoS, Managed Network Security, MPLS/L3VPN & VLS, Managed Router, SD-WAN, Enhanced LAN & Wi-Fi.
