Cloud Carib becomes first Caribbean Company to join VMware Sovereign Cloud Initiative

VMware | December 05, 2022

A leading provider of cloud services in the Caribbean and Latin America, Cloud Carib now joins the VMware Sovereign Cloud Initiative, helping clients better protect national sovereignty within its region of operation. The tech firm headquartered in Nassau, The Bahamas, made the formal announcement after recently attending VMware Explore 2022 Europe conference in Barcelona, formerly VMworld. Today, 100+ countries have their own laws governing how data should be managed and stored within their sovereign borders, and most of these regulations are constantly changing. Cloud Carib, as a VMware Sovereign Cloud provider, meets the significant capabilities in delivering more secure and compliant cloud services to government organizations, those in the public sector and any client with data residency requirements or concerns. “We’re extremely proud to be the first Caribbean company to join the Sovereign Cloud Initiative and are committed to helping Digital Transformation Initiatives realize sovereignty for the protection of the communities we serve. We’re dedicated to bringing sovereign cloud services to our clients, advancing the region’s data protection and sovereignty commitments, and supporting nations as they modernize and protect their data within their borders,” remarked Stelios Xeroudakis, Cloud Carib’s Founder and Chief Technology Officer. The VMware Sovereign Cloud initiative helps customers engage with trusted national cloud service providers to meet geo-specific requirements around data sovereignty and jurisdictional control; data access and integrity; data security and compliance; data independence and mobility; and data analytics and innovation. “There is no data sovereignty without cloud sovereignty. And sovereignty does not have to come at the expense of cloud innovation,” said Rajeev Bhardwaj, Vice President, Cloud Provider Platform Solutions, VMware. “VMware Sovereign Cloud providers such as Cloud Carib can help customers innovate and drive digital transformation while reducing the risk of unlocking the value of data.” New research conducted by Vanson Bourne[1] commissioned by VMware reveals that over the next two years, 96% of all companies surveyed believe data will be a source of revenue, and 50% believe it will be a significant revenue source. As economic uncertainty intensifies, it is not surprising that more business leaders are zeroing in on their data as an untapped revenue source. Yet the downside is just as big: respondents identified data sovereignty as one of the key challenges facing organizations, with 95% admitting it is a concern. Organizations that fail to comply with data sovereignty regulations often must pay fines in the hundreds of millions of dollars and suffer damage to brand reputation because of data compromise. The first jurisdiction to benefit from this rollout is our home base in The Bahamas. Joining the Sovereign Cloud initiative amplifies our decade-long commitment to this region. So, this really is just the beginning as we aim to further that commitment by offering Sovereign Cloud to each country in the region as regulations evolve and security demands increase." Cloud Carib CEO Scott MacKenzie. About Cloud Carib Cloud Carib is the region’s premier provider of managed cloud services founded upon the principles of delivering quality, agility, and value for every client.

Digital Element Enhances Nodify™, Providing Security Teams With Industry Leading Insights Into Criminal VPN Usage

Digital Element | October 03, 2022

Digital Element, the global IP geolocation and audience insights leader, has announced a suite of updates to Nodify™, the industry’s first and most advanced threat intelligence solution designed to help security professionals respond to the recent surge in the VPN market. While other solutions on the market claim to offer VPN usage insights, Nodify is the only offering that provides a granular look into which VPNs are being used across all devices to weed out bad actors and allow legitimate services to continue. As tech providers expand their offerings and provide new safety features to users, Nodify gives organisations an unmatched level of detail around VPN traffic, usage, and intent, enabling cybersecurity teams to understand the level of threat such traffic poses and set policies around that traffic. “With the growing interest in personal privacy on the web, we’ve seen many consumers utilising VPNs for legitimate reasons, but now more and more people are leveraging the anonymity around VPNs to cloak their location and bypass geographic boundaries set by today’s leading service providers, Security professionals need to understand the nuances around VPN usage on their platforms. For example, users who have opted to hide their personal information may not necessarily be trying to torrent illegal data from a remote location. Determining who is granted and denied access depends entirely on the granular data available in Nodify.” Jerrod Stoller, President of Digital Envoy, parent company of Digital Element Following the launch of Nodify in April 2022, Digital Element has introduced a new suite of updates, keeping the product at the forefront of VPN data reporting with the most extensive VPN detection system available. Notable updates include: Higher Frequency: With proxy IPS and VPNs changing rapidly, Nodify data is collected on an hourly basis and provides customers with a daily update on usage. Deeper Insights: Going beyond the generic VPN collection, Nodify provides users with critical insights into the VPN user, including services provided by the VPN provider such as "no logging," "multihop," and "corporate," these fields help clients determine the good vs the bad based on their use case. Ease of Use: Nodify has a User interface that allows clients to quickly get a complete understanding of any VPN provider through a simple web dashboard. “GPS spoofing has become a major pain point for industries ranging from streaming to gaming services. With everything from third-party apps to full-service providers now offering VPN services, it has become harder for providers to delineate what devices should be granted access. Still, accurate identification remains critical to their success,” said Jonathan Tomek, VP of Research and Development at Digital Element. “Because Nodify is API based, we’re able to provide that granular data in the moments that matter the most. Users aren’t limited to just relying on GPS data from a phone that can easily be spoofed.” About Digital Element Digital Element is the global IP geolocation and intelligence leader. In business for more than two decades, the company has unrivalled expertise in leveraging IP address insights to deliver new value to companies in a privacy-sensitive, transparent manner. Leveraged by the world’s most recognised brands, Digital Element provides clients with innovative solutions designed to optimise engagement across industries and applications, creating unique value at every consumer touchpoint. Many of the world’s largest websites, brands, security companies, ad networks, social media platforms and mobile publishers have trusted Digital Element’s technology to target advertising, localise content, enhance analytics, and manage content rights as well as detect and prevent online fraud.
