Data center provider Verizon Terremark is tackling cyber security for its Enterprise Cloud service at its data center facilities located in Dallas and London by adding federal-grade security controls previously available exclusively through the Enterprise Cloud Federal Edition to all commercial customers.
Enterprises and channel partners can tap advanced security technologies, including role-based access controls and certificate-based multifactor authentication to manage cloud resources.
“The ability to provide rapid access to cloud environments with high level of security shows our leadership and commitment to the Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) market, not only domestically but on a global scale,” said Chris Drumgoole, Verizon Terremark’s senior vice president of global operations. “Through the enterprise-scale cloud ecosystem we have built, Verizon Terremark is in the best position to serve enterprises and governments and enable them to improve the lives of consumers and citizens through the use of the best technology available.”
Verizon Terremark is also adding instance-based compute and storage to the Enterprise Cloud service (aka, pay-as-you-go billing), so customers can pay for their cloud services per virtual machine versus reserving resource capacity, as they continue to have complete awareness of usage through embedded CloudSwitch software technology.
“This standardized migration procedure removes adoption barriers by enabling private and public sector organizations to gain greater flexibility and control over migration to and from cloud environments and traditional computing environments without modifying workloads and applications,” the company noted.
