VIRTUAL DESKTOP STRATEGIES, SERVER HYPERVISORS
globenewswire | April 04, 2023
Cloudbrink today announced that it signed a global reseller agreement with NEC Networks & System Integration Corporation (NESIC).
NESIC will have exclusive rights in Japan to the Hybrid Access as a Service (HAaaS) platform, which provides fast, secure access to cloud and data center applications for hybrid workers.
NESIC has a commanding position in the Japanese market, where it is a leading reseller of Zoom. Accelerating videoconferencing applications for remote/hybrid workers is one of the major use cases for Cloudbrink.
The deal with NESIC follows extensive testing across multiple applications including collaboration tools, file transfer and virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI).
Osamu Kikuchi, senior vice president NEC Networks & System Integration, said: “Productivity and security are the twin challenges faced by our customers in the hybrid working era. In tests, the Cloudbrink service demonstrated significantly enhanced performance for SaaS applications, particularly in environments where network connections were less reliable, such as for users working remotely from home or on business trips. With the Cloudbrink app, NESIC can optimize the network for our customers wherever they are, without compromising on security and without the need for additional hardware.”
Prakash Mana, chief executive and co-founder of Cloudbrink, said: “We’re delighted to be working with one of the world’s most successful companies. Our approach is all about making sure that the experience users have had for more than a decade in the office can follow them wherever their work takes them. Until now IT departments have struggled to keep remote users secure, as well as having to deal with networking issues they often couldn’t solve. The deal with NESIC testifies that we’ve successfully addressed both of these issues.”
The Cloudbrink service comprises an app and a global network of virtual PoPs called FAST edges to overcome packet loss, latency and other problems at the edge of the network, together with high-performance ZTNA and Moving Target Defense (MTD) for enterprise-grade security. Cloudbrink also provides a connector for secure, low-latency access to data center applications.
Cloudbrink brings the industry’s first highest-performance connectivity to the modern hybrid workforce anywhere in the world. The company uses AI and ML to provide edge-native hybrid access as a service (HAaaS). HAaaS delivers accelerated performance for cloud, SaaS, and data center applications.

StackPath, the most complete and integrated edge computing platform for latency-sensitive and decentralized applications, and Console Connect by PCCW, an easy-to-use platform for the Software Defined Interconnection® of applications and infrastructures, have partnered to enable Console Connect to provision direct network connections to the StackPath platform. Businesses can have dedicated links between StackPath and on-premises or third-party networks provisioned in minutes, accelerating their time-to-market, and improving the security and performance of their multi-/hybrid-cloud workloads.
"We're proud to be the first edge compute provider in the Console Connect ecosystem, and the possibilities this brings the market," said Kevin Odden, StackPath Chief Revenue Officer. "We built StackPath for applications that need speed, and are designed to run across the internet—not just on-premises or in a public hyperscale cloud. Pairing our ability to deploy Edge Compute instances around the world in minutes or less with Console Connect's ability to deliver dedicated links in the same time frame is a game changer."
Console Connect allows users to self-provision private, high-performance connections among a global ecosystem of enterprises, networks, clouds, SaaS providers, IoT providers, and application providers.
StackPath provides edge computing solutions, including virtual machines and containers, within 43 major metro markets around the world. These edge locations are strategically placed to minimize the physical distance between the platform and the source or destination of an internet-centric workload's data, reducing latency. With a robust orchestration platform designed for distributed applications, workloads can be configured once and deployed around the world within minutes.
Using Console Connect's self-service portal or API, businesses can now create point-to-point Layer 2 or Layer 3 connections to StackPath, with the ability to scale bandwidth in real-time to meet their needs.
StackPath edge locations in Los Angeles, Chicago, and Singapore will be the first available for connection via Console Connect, with more locations to follow. Orders can be made and more information is available at Console Connect MeetingPlace.
StackPath is a cloud platform built at the internet's edge, providing infrastructure and services physically closer to the source or destination of data than hyperscale cloud service providers. StackPath Edge Compute (including virtual machines and containers), Edge Delivery (including CDN and serverless scripting), and Edge Security (including DDoS Protection and WAF) solutions run in edge locations strategically deployed in high-density markets and united by a secure global network and a single management system. Customers ranging from Fortune 50 enterprises to one-person startups trust StackPath to give their latency-sensitive workloads and real-time applications the speed, security, and efficiency they require.
