Share

ADVA (FSE: ADV) today announced that dacoso is using its cloud-native security solution, ConnectGuard™ Cloud, to offer secure managed services. The virtualized encryption technology will give dacoso’s customers comprehensive data protection in cloud environments. With unprecedented scale and efficiency, dacoso will be able to roll out secure connectivity within minutes, safeguarding private, public, and edge/branch clouds at Layers 2, 3 and 4. Managed centrally in dacoso’s network by ADVA’s Ensemble Controller, the VPN services offer a major boost to the region’s businesses as they look to reduce costs and enhance flexibility by migrating more of their data and applications to the cloud. Now dacoso’s enterprise customers can harness the latest cloud tools while ensuring data integrity, regulatory compliance and true peace of mind for their end users.

“We’re excited to be offering our customers the comprehensive protection of ADVA’s ConnectGuard™ Cloud technology. For many of them, total cloud security is key to their business needs. By providing strong and flexible data protection in virtual environments, we’re enabling our customers to realize their full potential by accessing cloud applications with complete peace of mind,” said Karsten Geise, head of business and product development, dacoso. “We’re convinced by the robust security and performance benefits of ConnectGuard Cloud™. So much so that we’re already harnessing the solutions to protect our own branch and cloud locations. We understand its power to protect mission-critical data while also reducing costs and enhancing network utilization.”

Implemented entirely in software, ADVA’s ConnectGuard™ Cloud is a highly scalable, standards-compliant encryption solution that provides hybrid and multi-cloud environments with the ultimate defense against cyber threats. It enables dacoso to offer its customers high-performance, transport-layer-independent security with none of the performance issues of IPSec-based technologies. As a far more efficient and cost-effective alternative to hardware security appliances, ConnectGuard™ Cloud empowers dacoso’s customers to extend encryption to remote workers and branch offices by leveraging low-cost uCPE platforms. What’s more, with zero-touch provisioning, dacoso can roll out fully secured cloud connectivity almost instantly without any manual configuration.

“Our partnership with dacoso is great news for a huge number of enterprises across this region who are currently undergoing their digital transformation. With more and more of dacoso’s customers moving their workloads to cloud environments, our ConnectGuard™ Cloud technology provides the ideal way to ensure privacy and data integrity while keeping cost and complexity low,” commented Hartmut Müller-Leitloff, SVP, sales, EMEA, ADVA. “As a virtualized encryption solution with zero-touch provisioning and automated key management, our ConnectGuard™ Cloud is the most readily scalable option available. It improves operational simplicity and latency performance compared to appliance-based encryption methods. What’s more, it keeps latency at its lowest levels – a key requirement for many emerging cloud applications.”
