Imagination & Cohesive Networks win Network Computing’s Network Project of the Year – Private Sector Award

Award recognises global creative agency’s migration to Azure, connecting multiple VPN and MPLS

LONDON, UK – 18 March, 2016 – Network Computing last night awarded Imagination Group and Cohesive Networks the Network Project of the Year – Private Sector Award. The gala, held at Hotel Russel in London recognises projects and professionals in the Enterprise Network space.

About the project:
Cohesive Networks is a cloud-native network and security company. The flagship product, VNS3 helps over 2,100 customers in more than 22 countries provide more than 500 million devices hours of application networking for public and private cloud. VNS3 offers enhanced network services
in layer 4-7, using the Docker container systems to allow customers to create their own “in mesh” application plugins. VNS3 use cases range from a simple VPN tunnel to distributed cloud networks using multiple endpoints, intrusion/extrusion detection, and high availability.

Imagination, a global creative agency, decided to migrate a new ERP application to a central Microsoft Azure location, but discovered they could not connect multiple VPN connections and Azure only supports IKE version 2. After tested hardware solutions to connect sites to the Azure-based ERP app, Cohesive Networks was able to help the company set up, test, and launch quickly. Imagination was able to implement their Azure migration on schedule, and went from on-premise to live production within 2 months. “We couldn’t connect multiple VPN sites to the Azure environment without VNS3,” said Paul Saunders, Imagination’s Head of IT – EMEA & Global Networks.
