Alibaba Cloud Zero Trust Networking

Zero trust networking as a service from NetFoundry creates secure private access to Alibaba Cloud

Partnership Overview

Alibaba Cloud operates 69 availability zones in 23 regions around the world and has 2,800+ Content Delivery Network (CDN) nodes in more than 70 countries. With the launch of local edge nodes, Alibaba cloud has been transforming the traditional cloud, opening up a new range of possibilities. These include the large deployment of cloud-native technology with container services, a new style of application development and business scaling to deliver the type of extreme scalability and efficiency required by modern businesses.

Connecting to the Alibaba Cloud is now extremely simple. NetFoundry enables businesses to instantly spin up zero trust, high performance, application-specific global networks at scale. Using NetFoundry’s cloud-native orchestration tools, Alibaba customers can easily and effectively deploy private networks as easily as they spin up Alibaba Cloud instances.
