You asked, and NetMotion delivered. After months of testing and limited distribution, we’re pleased to announce the general availability of our new secure access service edge (SASE) platform as a cloud-hosted offering.
It’s now easier than ever to harness the power of NetMotion’s zero-trust network access (ZTNA/SDP), experience monitoring and enterprise VPN solutions. A simple monthly SaaS subscription can get you up and running in minutes, not hours.
Why cloud? Why now?
As you may have noticed, 2020 has been a year of rapid change, on many fronts. Remote working is the new normal across the globe and the need for secure remote access technologies has exploded.
This new normal has fueled the wave of organizations tossing out their traditional firewalls and legacy VPNs in favour of cloud-native solutions that secure and enable workers’ access to cloud apps and on-premise resources at ‘the edge’ (just about anywhere, on any device).
Cloud services themselves have become a way of life for many IT teams tasked with implementing new technology. The benefits of cloud include fluid scalability, implementation simplicity, a reduction in maintenance and more powerful security controls.
In other words, cloud solutions make life easier for IT teams who have enough to manage as it is. And what company doesn’t want to take advantage of that?
NetMotion as a Service
NetMotion as a Service includes everything the new platform has to offer, but without setup, installation or maintenance hassles.
This means everything you know and love about NetMotion, whether it be its experience monitoring capabilities, traffic-optimizing VPN, best-in-class SDP, or fine-tuned policy controls, is at your fingertips, in the cloud.
Another benefit: your team won’t ever need to worry about hardware failures, operating system patches, or software updates. It’s all taken care of for you, without disruption when you implement in the cloud.
The new NetMotion cloud-first platform is designed from the ground up for the new modern edge, including 5G and remote connectivity. The solution was built to evolve and scale with your organization, empowering your remote workers and providing them with the best, most secure user experience.
The NetMotion cloud platform is vendor agnostic, but it has been specifically optimized for Microsoft Azure. Microsoft has been a long-time partner of NetMotion and this year, recommended NetMotion’s VPN as an optimal solution to use with Intune and Endpoint Manager.
Leveraging Microsoft Azure’s cloud compute background has its own unique integration benefits for customers, especially if your business uses Endpoint Manager, Intune or O365 applications.
Erin Chapple, Corporate Vice President of Azure Compute at Microsoft commented, “We share NetMotion’s vision to help customers looking to transition to a cloud-first approach, and we continue to invest in a global, private, high performance network optimized for a mobile-first, cloud-first world that enables this type of solution.” Chapple continued, “Productivity and security are currently top of mind for IT leaders, so providing secure remote access in a frictionless way is essential for an increasingly distributed and remote workforce.”
Even if you’re not a current Microsoft customer, Azure’s infrastructure is robust. It boasts 60+ global regions, more than any other cloud provider. With this scale, NetMotion customers can bring their apps closer to their users around the world.
If you’re making the switch to cloud
If your business is taking the steps to transition to a cloud-first environment, NetMotion is the ideal solution to assist you in making the change.
