CohesiveFT Unveils VNS3 3.5 With Docker Technology for the Co-Creation of Customizable, Flexible Cloud Network Platforms

Virtualize Network Functions and Build Hybrid Clouds With Private Alpha Release

CHICAGO, IL -- (Marketwired) -- 01/28/14 -- CohesiveFT, the original cloud networking company, today announced the availability of VNS3 version 3.5 alpha with Docker integration. VNS3 3.5 now provides the ability to co-create customizable, flexible networks with Docker containers built in, and tailor virtual networking functionality to specific use cases when extending corporate and data center networks to public, private and hybrid clouds. VNS3 3.5 delivers a new way for partners and customers to collaborate on the creation of custom network functions -- including proxy, reverse proxy, WAN optimization, load balancing, and more -- giving IT teams more control over network security and connectivity.

VNS3 version 3.5 -- now available in private alpha for over 20 public, private and hybrid clouds -- also allows customers to:

  • Work with partners and customers and easily share information about tunnel logging and display (to share network information such as SPIs, lifetimes, throughput, etc.);
  • Create network workflows, manage multiple IPsec tunnels, and access the single API interface from a dramatically easier to use web-based UI;
  • Manage role-based security features to ensure identity access and security regardless of network, location, and role;
  • Release notes: find out more about the technology behind the VNS3 3.5 update at www.cohesiveft.com/support/vns3-release-notes

Customer Value:
"With the latest updates in version 3.5, customers can co-create customizable and flexible network platforms to take advantage of network features needed per application and integrated at the cloud network transport layer," said CohesiveFT CEO, Patrick Kerpan. "The VNS3 virtual appliance can be used as a container for adding in additional network functions all within one or more virtual appliances, for ease of management and a reduction in cost. Essentially, if you're connecting to, through and across the clouds, make sure it's a Cohesive connection."

"With the new 3.5 version, we were able to create a much more secure client configuration with the security control needed to work with large, complex network configurations. VNS3's LAN customization settings ensure we get the signing authority, cipher choice, and key length," said Peter Rung, CEO at I.D. Rank Security, Inc. "With this implementation our myKryptofon voice encryption solution goes beyond the high level commercial security standards our customers experience today, to meeting the extended security requirements as defined by DISA and the NSA for many U.S. government agencies."

VNS3 3.5 is available for qualified customers in an alpha version. Contact CohesiveFT for access: www.cohesiveft.com/vns3/alpha

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems.

Malicious agents are moving faster than the speed of business. Even more worrisome, most companies are relying on legacy approaches to security that are no longer capable of meeting current threats. In the modern cloud, threat diversity is rapidly expanding, necessitating more sophisticated security protocols than those used in the past or in desktop environments. Yet companies are falling for cloud security myths that were truths at one time but have evolved out of existence.
Digital Transformation is the ultimate goal of cloud computing and related initiatives. The phrase is certainly not a precise one, and as subject to hand-waving and distortion as any high-falutin' terminology in the world of information technology.

Digital Transformation means: handling all the data types being found and created in the organizat...
Public Cloud IaaS started its life in the developer and startup communities and has grown rapidly to a $20B+ industry, but it still pales in comparison to how much is spent worldwide on IT: $3.6 trillion.
