OPAQ provides 15 Gbps of security-as-a-service networking to support digital transformation

OPAQ, the network security cloud company, announced a new set of offerings that provide up to 15 Gbps of hyperscale security-as-a-service networking to support digital transformation initiatives.

The OPAQ Cloud provides direct Gigabit connectivity to ISP exchanges and comprehensive network security for organizations that require carrier-grade network performance and security for hybrid and multi-cloud environments that span on-premises, Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) resources.

“Companies of all sizes are integrating on-premises data centers with cloud workloads and SaaS applications to accelerate digital transformation projects,” said Ken Ammon, Chief Strategy Officer for OPAQ.

“These hybrid or multi-cloud environments create network performance and security challenges which are too complex and expensive to address using traditional on-prem security architectures. The OPAQ Cloud integrates patented hyperscale networking with enterprise-grade security features to provide a secure fabric that seamlessly supports these distributed infrastructure processing requirements.”

Virtually every organization faces three interconnected challenges: regulatory compliance, security and network bandwidth/latency. For businesses these days, monthly cloud workloads can easily reach 20-30 Terabytes due to big data processing requirements, which demands peak throughput performance in excess of 2 Gbps.

OPAQ’s hyperscale networking fabric easily scales from 50 Mbps to 15 Gbps, while providing advanced Next-Generation Firewall-as-a-Service and Endpoint Protection-as-a-Service that is fully integrated into the OPAQ Cloud. This enables service providers to easily meet the security, compliance and bandwidth requirements of small and large organizations that are increasingly moving business processes and workloads to cloud environments.
