PLDT launches zero-trust cloud networking with NetFoundry
PLDT Enterprise has selected NetFoundry to extend the PLDT Zero-Trust Acceleration Platform (ZAP) to the cloud.
“We at PLDT Enterprise are always looking for ways to bolster the value of our cloud and connectivity solutions to our customers. This technology and partnership with Netfoundry enable us to better cater and support emerging market needs and use cases,” said Jojo Gendrano, first vice president and head of PLDT Enterprise Core Business Solutions.
By bringing the PLDT ZAP to the corporate market businesses can easily spin up and create software-defined networks in the cloud, without the need to build or manage any underlying infrastructure.
“Although the digital transformation challenge is formidable, NetFoundry has turned the network paradigm inside out,” added Dipesh Ranjan, vice president and managing director of Asia-Pacific at NetFoundry.
In addition, it enables secure and optimised connectivity between users and applications across any set of clouds and networks.
“It has enabled businesses to spin up application-specific zero trust based secured networks on-demand within minutes connecting users, clouds, devices, data centres and app embedded XaaS environments. NetFoundry has unified the network and app worlds and we are more than happy that PLDT Enterprise has partnered with us for this,” continued Ranjan.
The PLDT ZAP complements PLDT Enterprise’s existing range of data connectivity solutions and further fortifies its thrust to foster adoption towards software-defined networking.
This is further enhanced by NetFoundry’s position as a provider of programmable Cloud & IoT networking, as well as its work in zero trust networking.
