NTT America, Integralis Partner to Ease Global Enterprise Cloud Deployments
NTT America, a global infrastructure services provider and wholly owned subsidiary of NTT Communications Corporation, and Integralis, a global provider of IT security and information risk management solutions, recently announced an ongoing partnership to provide global enterprises with secure, high performance, streamlined and cost-effective use of cloud computing.
NTT America brings virtualized global data centers and high speed networks to enterprise cloud computing, while Integralis offers comprehensive Managed Security Solutions (MSS) to form a complete cloud computing solution for enterprises.
Global enterprises interested in the potential of cost efficiencies available from moving to the cloud have faced two major hurdles: the intensity of the security requirements needed for mission critical applications and data, as well as the unwillingness to abandon current and often substantial investments in legacy systems. By leveraging the significant investments in the infrastructure assets of NTT Group, NTT America and Integralis provide one of the only options for global enterprises to enjoy the economics of the cloud in a secure and organized fashion.
“Our experience in managed security services has provided us with insights on the requirements and process needed to ensure success in full cloud deployment,” said Michala Hart, director, global alliances, Integralis. “Together with NTT America, we give customers a clear understanding of their options, use our expertise to provide the ability to outsource security in a cost effective way and finally provide a plan that protects brands, assets and investments in current systems.”
“Tightly integrating managed security services into our data center services allows us to make cloud computing a reality for large global enterprises,” said Doug McMaster, vice president, Data Center Services, NTT America. “Working in partnership with Integralis enables us to bring not only a complete and cost-effective solution to enterprise-level cloud implementations, but to do so in a way that causes the least disruption to IT staff and budgets.”
Both NTT America and Integralis are business entities within the NTT Communications Group. This joint effort keeps MSS tightly integrated with NTT America’s data centers resulting in increased security, minimized risk and greater compliance. In addition, our effort expands to best use of sister company capabilities including Dimension Data and NTT DATA group companies.
