NetFoundry Launches Application-Specific Networking platform to enable enterprises to spin up MultiCloud AppWANs on demand


30-day trial program available to select applicants

NetFoundry_logoNetFoundry has announced the availability of NetFoundry MultiCloud AppWANs on a trial basis. The NetFoundry platform enables enterprises to provision secure, high-performance networks over the internet and instantly connects applications across any set of networks and clouds, including AWS, Azure, Bluemix and Google.  The MultiCloud AppWAN 30-day trial program is available now and applicants are invited to submit an application here.

Chris Williams, Vice President at PliantCloud, a Division of Alliance Technology Group said “NetFoundry’s AppWANs are the next logical step of SD-WAN, enabling secure, performant networking to be directly driven by application contexts, and extending the wide area network (WAN)  all the way to the application endpoint without CPE or private network requirements.  We integrated NetFoundry’s AppWANs into the networking solutions we sell to financial institutions to enable them to meet their strict regulatory and security requirements.”

NetFoundry’s Application-Specific Networking (ASN) platform and APIs enable a new approach to networking, allowing administrators, developers, and integrators to deploy on-demand, programmable networks over the Internet.  By enabling application-specific private networks (“AppWANs”), NetFoundry’s software and APIs provide the security and reliability previously only available via private circuits and custom hardware, while enabling customers and partners to enjoy the economics, reach and agility of the Internet.

NetFoundry’s unique AppWANs integrate business applications, services, and solutions.  Similar to Intent Based Networking capabilities to optimize data centers, each NetFoundry AppWAN leverages automation, optimization and contextual awareness to optimize application connections over the Internet. This new architecture – in which network access and control is driven by application contexts provides the agility and flexibility required for digital transformations, eliminating the barriers caused by client-server generation network architectures, and legacy separation of application logic from network configurations.

Galeal Zino, Founder of NetFoundry, says, “We are excited to offer a limited 30-day trial of the MultiCloud offer to selected applicants so that they can spin up on-demand, application-specific AppWANs between applications, end user devices, private data centers and public clouds without requiring VPNs, SD-WAN CPE or MPLS circuits.”

Mike Sapien, Chief Analyst at Ovum, commented: “Enterprise customers are moving to new hybrid network options that combine many different network technologies. Many providers are promoting the use of internet services over legacy MPLS service. Many customer locations will use internet services as their primary connectivity due to lower cost or regional availability. NetFoundry’s Application Specific Solution can provide improved performance for lower cost to these customers when using internet services. In the end, the improvement of application performance over internet service, makes this offer highly desirable alternative than many other more costly or complex solutions. Using the internet for connectivity will always be an attractive option to enterprise customers of all sizes.”

The free trial enables organizations to deploy private AppWAN networks across NetFoundry’s SDN fabric via a web console. NetFoundry’s software connects the customers endpoints in private AppWANs, letting them connect their internal applications, external SaaS and B2B extranet services on private networks without using cumbersome VPNs.

NetFoundry has been selected as a finalist of the IoT & Cloud Innovation Awards 2017 in the Hot Start-Up category at the NetEvents Global Press and Analysts Summit.
