About the pitch:
The TIA 2016 the Network of the Future conference draws industry leaders from across the communications ecosystem to debate, share and discuss the critical technology, business and public policy issues facing the information and communications technology (ICT) industry.
Mr. Kerpan presented Cohesive Networks and our primary product, VNS3. In the five minute presentation, Mr. Kerpan emphasized how VNS3 adds security to critical cloud-based applications in a way no other cloud provider or security service can.
No cloud provider or hardware vendor offers the same level of control and security and no other technology can guarantee the full accountability of end-to-end encryption for user-controlled security. VNS3 is different from other security products because it creates a customer-controlled network over the top of underlying data center networks. This “overlay network” opens up private cloud computing for even more possibilities, including ways to connect and secure data centers and businesses not allowed in public cloud networks. VNS3 lets users connect, secure and control critical data in any network, in any cloud, connecting with any networking device.
