CloudGenix, a global SD-WAN provider delivering an application-defined fabric and unified hybrid WAN while enabling application-specific SLAs, has joined the Symantec Technology Integration Partner Program (TIPP) – a global ecosystem composed of more than 100 participating technology companies, in a collaborative effort to combat cyber crime and securing cloud environments.
As part of Symantec TIPP, CloudGenix can leverage an ‘open’ ecosystem which includes a complete API framework, as well as integration with the Symantec Integrated Cyber Defense Platform. CloudGenix and Symantec will explore and strive to offer API-based integrated solutions that would best service customers and help protect them from security threats. Also as part of Symantec TIPP, CloudGenix will have access to Symantec technology, tools, and support, to enable delivery of these API-integrated solutions to market faster and more efficiently.
“Symantec is a proven global leader in information security and threat prevention,” said Kumar Ramachandran, CEO of CloudGenix. “By coupling AppFabric SD-WAN with Symantec’s cloud-based security solutions, we provide businesses with a consistent security perimeter for all sites and SD-WAN to enable secure, performant connectivity regardless of where applications are deployed using policies that align with their business intent.”
Founded in 2013 by a team that has delivered “industry-leading” products in networking, SDN, cloud, security and web-scale applications, CloudGenix serves financial services, legal, retail and technology organizations worldwide.
“In the cloud generation, it’s important for companies to work with an open ecosystem to reduce the potential risk of fragmentation that can result in increased vulnerabilities and high operating costs,” said Peter Doggart, vice president of Business Development, Symantec. “By integrating with the latest, advanced security technologies, our partners can help protect their customers and data from threats. With the Symantec Technology Integration Partner Program, we’ve made our Integrated Cyber Defense Platform open for integration in order to develop deep technical integrations.”
