Chicago, IL USA and London, UK – September 16, 2015 – Cohesive Networks today announced ten global customers in diverse industries that have grown their cloud-based businesses and expanded globally using VNS3.  Across ten highly specialized industries, VNS3 is extending networks across cloud environments and protecting critical applications through end-to-end encryption. Cohesive Networks customer spotlights include CodeObjects, Foley Carrier Service, Geezeo, Imagination, LocusView, MTech Communications, PayNearMe, Sigma Moviles and Trek10.

“As more enterprises use cloud to grow their business, they are seeing network limitations as they connect customers, partners, and global networks together,” said Chris Purrington, UK Managing Director and Head of Sales. “VNS3 helps customers seamlessly bridge traditional networking functions to the cloud with the added security and flexibility they need.”

Cohesive Networks also announced customers have logged over 500 million usage hours for VNS3 virtual networking products since its launch in 2008. VNS3 is publicly available in Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, CenturyLink Cloud, ElasticHosts, HP Helion, IBM SoftLayer and more. More than 1,200 customers use VNS3 in over 22 countries.

Connecting with Encrypted Tunnels to Partners without Physical Infrastructure Costs
Sigma Móviles, a Lima-based software development company as well as a premium SMS provider uses VNS3 in Microsoft Azure to connect to their partners’ networking devices while saving on capital expenses and up front costs associated with dedicated internet connections and physical server infrastructure.

“VNS3 made our setup a reality,” said Paolo Cuadros Information Technology Manager at Sigma Móviles. “VNS3 made our setup and connection feasible with our partners using the cloud instead of having our own Tier1 infrastructure.”

Trek10, an Amazon Web Services systems integrator known for their deep expertise in AWS migration and cloud services, offers VNS3 to its customers to ensure security for enterprises using hybrid clouds.

“The cloud-class security that Cohesive Networks provides gives our team, and our customers, peace of mind as we grow and connect into more third party networks,” said Trek10 Security Architect Josh von Schaumburg. “For example, we have one customer leveraging an overlay network to secure their payment transactions. It’s always impressive to inform them of full end-to-end encryption with VNS3.”

Foley Carrier Services 

Foley Carrier Services is a logistics company with a rapid cloud migration timeline. Foley reevaluated their networking costs for hardware, staffing, and maintenance. As they migrate to the Amazon cloud, Foley wanted more flexibility to connect and grow their network to connect multiple sites to the cloud.

“We needed something we could heavily customize on the Amazon side for multiple sites and multiple connections to the cloud,” said Chris Cata, Manager, Network Operations at Foley Carrier Services. “VNS3 really provided that customized connection, and we were able to get down to the details of setting up flexible VPN tunnels. VNS3 allowed us to do that, while Amazon’s built in VPN products did not.”

MTech Communications
In the African telecom industry, Cohesive Networks customer MTech Communications uses VNS3 to connect directly into their telecom partners’ infrastructure. Since working with VNS3, MTech has more than doubled revenues, added customers, and expanded partner relationships throughout Sub-Saharan Africa.

“Previously, we spent almost $5000 every month for our servers and connections,” said MTech Network Engineer Kenneth Shiaki. “But now that we use AWS and VNS3, everything has gone down to $3000 a month. We’re using our resources optimally.”
