CLIFTON, NJ--(Marketwire - Jun 25, 2012) - Bat Blue Networks, a leading provider of cloud-based Security-as-a-Service solutions, today announced the availability of BlueNET Hybrid WAN -- a fully managed service for connecting distributed sites across a region, continent or globe.
Bat Blue's BlueNET Hybrid WAN significantly lowers costs, improves performance and end user experience, and offers integrated security, faster deployment, and increased redundancy over dedicated WAN infrastructures. BlueNET Hybrid WAN is able to distinguish Internet traffic from intra-enterprise traffic. Traffic to and from the Internet is secured and processed locally with a VPN connection, eliminating the local loop while internal traffic is sent via Bat Blue's dedicated backbone to its destination. The BlueNET Hybrid WAN service is delivered on Bat Blue's BlueNET Network, and can be used alone or in conjunction with the company's Cloud/Sec security service.
"Our BlueNET Hybrid WAN empowers organizations to achieve the best of all worlds. It is an MPLS alternative that can save customers 50% or more eliminating expensive local loops as well as reducing the risks and burdens of multiple perimeters. Equally important are the improvements in the user experience and rollout times that are reduced from months to days," said Babak Pasdar, President and CEO of Bat Blue Networks. "BlueNET Hybrid WAN delivers the advantages of a local Internet experience, integrated security and application delivery via Cloud/Sec. Customers that have leveraged BlueNET Hybrid WAN to date are ecstatic with the service."
Bat Blue's Hybrid WAN alternative provides the following advantages:
Cost - A significantly reduced cost model that avoids the most expensive aspect of any WAN infrastructure rollout -- the local loop. The expensive local loop is replaced with a cost effective and often higher-performing Internet connection.
Performance / User Experience - BlueNET Hybrid WAN offers the best of all worlds, a local Internet user experience as well as a dedicated high-performance WAN for interconnecting organizational sites.
Security - By applying a single global security policy at each regional POP via Bat Blue's Cloud/Sec, the Internet perimeter becomes one single distributed perimeter. This significantly simplifies security and eliminates the increased risk, exposures and cost of ownership associated with many Internet connections. Robust security includes complete application based visibility, control, threat management along with data leak management.
Rapid Rollout Times - WAN deployment delays can be practically eliminated. Global WAN deployments that take many months and at times more than one year are not unusual. BlueNET Hybrid WAN can be deployed in as quickly as one day.
Management / Ownership - Ownership costs associated with management, monitoring and operations of the infrastructure and security are handled by Bat Blue's Security & Network Operations Center (S/NOC)
