Cryptzone, a Cyxtera Business
Cyxtera Technologies is open for business! Last week saw Cyxtera launch combining CenturyLink’s global data center footprint and colocation business with a modern, hybrid and cloud-ready security portfolio from four innovative companies – Cryptzone, Brainspace, Catbird and Easy Solutions.
Cyxtera CEO, Manny Medina believes it’s time for innovation in how companies protect themselves. He said, “We have had incredible advances in enterprise IT overall – the cloud, scalability, agility. But security has lagged behind and this is why you have those issues – the firewall was invented in 1988, the VPN was invented in 1996. What we are doing is creating a next-generation company that looks at security in a completely different way and protects the entire infrastructure.”
It’s an extraordinary time for our industry. The next era of IT enterprise availability must be founded on a similar revolution in infrastructure security that provides enterprises, service providers and government agencies an integrated, secure global platform for their mission-critical systems and applications.
What Cryptzone customers and partners can expect
With Cyxtera you will now be able to turn to one team, working together to provide you with an integrated portfolio that offers a powerful, secure and resilient infrastructure platform built for today’s complex, hybrid IT architectures, capable of securing and supporting dedicated infrastructure, private and public clouds, with software and services capabilities that extend protection to on-premises environments.
What does Cyxtera mean?
As our new CEO Medina said, “Cy for cyber, X for exchanges or internet exchanges, and tera for the world that we are going to conquer.”
