Cohesive shortlisted for Public Cloud Services & Infrastructure Award

Cohesive nominated for International Datacentres Award in Public Cloud Category, Featuring Customer Use Cases in Webinar Series

LONDON, UK – 16 May, 2013 – Cohesive today announced it has been shortlisted for the 6th Annual International Datacenters Award. CohesiveFT is nominated in the award category for Public Cloud Services & Infrastructure.

“The need for business application-layer security remains universal, and largely unanswered by IaaS and Cloud vendors,” said CohesiveFT CEO Patrick Kerpan.  “By combining VNS3 Overlay SDN with IaaS provider infrastructure security features, our customers are able to create and control a multidimensional security solution.”

The International Datacenters Award, called “the Oscars of the datacentre industry” focus on recognising excellence across the datacentre and cloud sector. “The quality of entry this year was among the highest ever at the 2012 event. This reflects both the growth and confidence of the datacentre sector across Europe,” wrote chairman of the Judges Panel, Ashley Davies.

The Public Cloud Services & Infrastructure Award recognises a company with a demonstrable track record established in the last 12 months that can be used as an exemplar to the global datacentre industry that has achieved transformation of traditional compute.

Upcoming “Life in the Cloud” Webinar

CohesiveFT is also hosting a Cloud Networking Webinar series featuring our unique approach to application-layer focus on security and customer use cases. The series covers topics including application/overlay SDN (Software Defined Networking), edge and software security, extending networks to the cloud, and more real life use cases.

The final webinar, on Wednesday 22 May, focuses on case studies examining current customers and how they use cloud networking to solve their cloud related problems. Enterprises large and small across many industries are already building and running custom cloud networks inside of public cloud deployments to provide the security, control, and compliance needed for their specific use-cases.
CFT Senior Solution Architect, Sam Mitchell, will present the three part webinar series beginning 8 May. Webinars run every Wednesday, starting May 8, at 4pm UK / 10am CT / 8am PT. The webinar will last 30 mins with an additional 15 minutes for Q&A.For more information on visit www.cohesive.net/webinars
