Xtel Communications, a U.S. company specializing in unified communications, cloud, network security, network connectivity, and voice services, has announced the opening of its third data center in the New York market amid an increase in cybercrime and digital transformation.
The facility, which is situated in Newark, New Jersey, expands the business’s portfolio of data centers. Other Xtel locations include Plano, Texas, and Philadelphia’s 401 N. Broad, a renowned international gateway.
This new facility’s installation would enable Xtel to increase the serviceable area for Dedicated Internet Access (DIA) via fiber-optic connections. To ensure more secure environments, the data center would also offer effective DDoS attack mitigation options. This is especially important because the rate at which these cybercrimes are developing is worrying. DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attacks have increased significantly in recent years.
Other key features of Xtel’s New York market data center include:
- For clients looking for a wider range of last mile fiber providers and fiber paths, there are additional redundancy choices.
- Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) providers can be accessed directly by end-user customers without the need to go through the Internet thanks to direct connect possibilities.
- Strategic enterprise-level colocation services.
FedRAMP, FISMA, SSAE18, HIPAA, PCI-DSS
All Xtel data centers are equipped to manage, operate, and monitor the data centers, phone platforms, and fiber optic backbones. The data centers are a component of an ‘active-active’ network design with high availability, enabling immediate service failover and load balancing between the data centers. Every year, major compliance frameworks including FedRAMP, FISMA, SSAE18, HIPAA, PCI-DSS, and Privacy Shield – GDPR require each data center to be recertified.
“As enterprises and businesses continue to scale and digitally transform, the addition of our New York Market data center adds critical cybersecurity services, connectivity and redundancy to a prominent, stable market with an ever-growing, favorable business climate,” said Brian Flynn, President at Xtel Communications. “We continuously invest in our network infrastructure while regularly expanding our services and solutions portfolio to meet ever-changing requirements. We look forward to continued growth in this market and beyond.”
