NetFoundry’s cloud native networking solution was named by Microsoft as a certified partner in the Microsoft Network Partner Program (NPP) for Office 365.
The Microsoft announcement was made at Microsoft Ignite and stated that NetFoundry delivers Office 365 networking “in a way that minimizes latency and maximizes performance and reliability of enterprise connectivity on Office 365 user experience”. According to Microsoft, “the most significant factor that determines the quality of the Office 365 end user experience is network reliability.” The 5 selected partners “have met Microsoft’s testing requirements” and “support a high-quality end user experience.”
NetFoundry’s O365 networking optimization solution both enables the lowest latency Office 365 networking (no trombone through cloud infrastructure), and does not require a specific SD-WAN solution, instead functioning as software-only NaaS, on top of any WAN. The same NetFoundry Platform used for O365 optimization also enables Zero Trust, private Azure connectivity, and has both NaaS and Developer Platform options.
Galeal Zino, CEO of NetFoundry, stated “We are excited to add our software-only, zero trust networking solution to Microsoft Network Partner Program for Office 365. We are like ‘the easy button’ for optimized O365 because our solution enables businesses to optimize O365, without implementing an SD-WAN solution or deploying hardware. We offer the flexibility of both NaaS services and the NetFoundry Developer Platform, and the same cloud-orchestrated solution also connects Azure and Azure Stack workloads.”
NetFoundry enables applications to get zero trust security and high performance over the Internet. NetFoundry’s NaaS services provide on-demand, software-only, cloud-orchestrated connectivity. NetFoundry’s Developer Platform enables ISVs and solution providers to embed private networking inside their applications, eliminating VPN and MPLS infrastructure and dependencies, and enabling their applications to be private, secure and performant no matter where they go. NetFoundry Inc. is headquartered in Charlotte, NC.
