Palo Alto, California, October 23, 2018 – InSpeed Networks, the technology leader in SD-WAN solutions for improving network performance, visibility and security announced today they have expanded their data center coverage to include global sites in Europe (London, Frankfurt and Paris) and Asia Pacific (Tokyo, Seoul, Singapore, and Mumbai). They will be adding data centers in Australia, the Philippines and Malaysia in 2019.
The expansion enhances InSpeed’s ability to better serve customers beyond their existing North American data centers in California, Texas, Virginia, Ohio, Florida, New Jersey and Quebec, by maximizing performance and reducing the risk of downtime.
InSpeed selected hardened facilities with the highest levels of physical and logical security controls, that are geopolitically stable, have nearby Internet backbone connections and that have on-site IT resources and talent. In the remote chance of a data center becoming unavailable, redirecting customers’ network traffic to an alternate site is an option.
“Each of these global data centers brings the InSpeed cloud closer to customers, improving performance by minimizing the latency created when data travels long distances,” said Michael Mansouri, Chairman and CEO of InSpeed Networks. “Also, we chose sites that are geographically diverse and less prone to natural disaster to reduce the risk that a catastrophic event will cause downtime for customers.”
Each data center that InSpeed utilizes holds certifications/attestations such as: ISO 27001, SOC 1, and SOC2 to provide third party verified assurance that they protect customer data and end user privacy as required by HIPAA, PCI DSS, GDPR, and United States state privacy laws.
The European Union (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) also played a role in InSpeed’s choice of data center facilities as well. “We take security very seriously—InSpeed Quality Service was built with integrated security,” said Ed Basart, Chief Strategy Officer and Founder of InSpeed Networks. “The GDPR imposes strict requirements for the security and privacy of the personal data of EU citizens and favors the location of that data within the EU, so we made sure that the security at every site has been certified by independent assessors.”
