BASKING RIDGE, N.J. – Verizon Enterprise Solution’s Secure Cloud Interconnect service is expanding and deepening its footprint globally with expansion into Latin America and additional sites in Europe and the U.S. These include Sao Paulo; Frankfurt and Russelsheim, Germany; and New York and Los Angeles in the U.S. 

Verizon’s Secure Cloud Interconnect service, a software-defined networking offering, helps enterprises seamlessly connect, manage and secure their cloud environments that often extend across multiple clouds and data centers around the globe.

In total, Secure Cloud Interconnect service now offers secure, private connections to six cloud providers (Amazon Web Services, Google, HP, Microsoft Azure Express Route for Microsoft Office 365/Skype for Business/Government Cloud, Salesforce; Verizon ) and three data center providers (Equinix, CoreSite, and Verizon) at more than 30 global locations in the Americas, Latin America, Europe and the Asia-Pacific region.

A truly integrated experience

Enterprises using cloud, hybrid cloud and colocations solutions from any of the cloud and/or data center providers connected to Secure Cloud Interconnect can take advantage of Verizon’s Private IP networking solution that features consumption-based bandwidth, pre-provisioned on-demand resources, controlled application performance, multiple classes of service and usage-based billing models. 

Rapid, on-demand provisioning via a centralized online portal reduces deployment time and maintenance requirements for Secure Cloud Interconnect customers.

Secure Cloud Interconnect customers are able to securely access their mission-critical applications in the cloud via either their mobile devices or from their office laptops. This distinction enables enterprises to offer users a truly integrated experience — no matter what device they use or where they use it — to access information, content and applications.

“Verizon’s Secure Cloud Interconnect allows users to connect to applications simply, securely and reliably,” said Shawn Hakl, vice president of enterprise networking and innovation for Verizon. “SCI customers will find our solution delivers an unbeatable combination of performance, security and efficiency to help enable their digital transformation while reducing the complexity often associated with cloud computing.”
