The hybrid multicloud is the architecture of the future because it fits where business is going, and so does Equinix SmartKey™, a new as-a-service security offering we’re launching today. SmartKey delivers multicloud-ready encryption key management, which we know is a critical part of doing business in an increasingly digital world.
While digital creates new possibilities across all industries, it also poses a big challenge to traditional IT models. The very nature of the distributed, dynamic and virtualized infrastructure required to conduct digital business flies in the face of the centralized, manual, physical IT architecture most enterprises have relied on for years.
Many of the M&E companies we work with recognize that they need to transform their IT infrastructures and to make that happen, they need fast and secure access to the cloud. When they ask us how it can be done, we demonstrate how leveraging an Interconnection Oriented Architecture (IOA™) deployed on Platform Equinix™ can give them a safe, simple on-ramp to a wealth of cloud services and access to a rich ecosystem of M&E partners.
Threats are growing in both scope and sophistication. In its 2015 Internet Security Threat Report, Symantec estimates advanced hackers targeted 5 out of 6 large companies, a 40% increase over the prior year.
If growing revenue is the top priority, then so is freeing the enterprise from the constraints of a highly centralized IT model that’s headed toward obsolescence. But that can’t happen without interconnection.
Today’s demands on IT infrastructures mean enterprises must change the way they think about and approach their IT strategies to remove obstacles.
The ExpressRoute solution leverages an Equinix switching fabric that provides secure connectivity and real-time provisioning, Microsoft’s physical infrastructure for Azure ExpressRoute sits in Equinix’s data centers and enables companies to bridge their cloud and data center strategies.
