Online PR News – 15-September-2011 – – Southfield, Mich. and Santa Clara, Calif.—August 30, 2011— OpSource clients can deploy cloud-based solutions with ANX Secure Cloud Access, a managed service for user-to-cloud connections that completely secures all endpoints, eliminating access security concerns often associated with cloud computing. As part of the partnership, ANX becomes a Validated Cloud Solution provider.
Industry analysts widely expect the market for cloud computing services to grow exponentially, with some analysts forecasting annual revenues of approximately $150 billion within a few years. A Harris Interactive survey of IT managers, however, found that security concerns are a barrier to cloud computing adoption, with 76% believing that information is more secure when stored on-premises rather than with a vendor, and 81% concerned about maintaining regulatory compliance if they were to store sensitive data in the cloud. Endpoint security is a major element of those concerns, as any insufficiently secured endpoint leaves the cloud provider, application and customer at risk.
Offering more than traditional cloud and hosting services, OpSource provides the integration, engineering, marketing and sales support required to launch and scale cloud-based solutions. Together, OpSource and ANX address IT organizations’ concerns about security in the cloud. In addition to handling all elements associated with establishing and making connections, ANX Secure Cloud Access delivers VPN, IPS/IDS, encryption, SIEM, identity management and access control, completely securing the virtual private cloud (VPC) across all endpoints. Clients can connect VPC resources directly to their own data centers via their choice of industry-standard encrypted VPN connections or MPLS network.
"Our partnership with OpSource enables customers who already benefit from an exceptional cloud infrastructure to also rapidly deploy and access cloud resources with the highest level of endpoint security,” said Paul Arceneaux, ANX chief marketing officer. "The combined solution will give even the most cautious IT managers confidence as they move forward to reap the many benefits of cloud computing."
OpSource’s Validated Cloud Solutions Program offers end-users the assurance that its Partners’ cloud-based applications or platforms operate efficiently on the OpSource Cloud, with solutions tested and validated by both OpSource and the Partner.
“In combination with ANX, OpSource can offer its clients an integrated offering that provides IT departments with the level of security and control needed to confidently place mission-critical applications in the cloud,” said Jon Beck, SVP of Channels and Alliances, at OpSource. “Together we help customers reduce operational expense and deployment issues by integrating and testing the combined solution.”
