(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – INTERXION HOLDING NV, a leading European provider of carrier-neutral colocation data centre services, today announced that Metadigm, the network and end point security specialist, has chosen to deploy its hosted security service in Interxion’s Cloud Hub Community at its City of London data centre.
Metadigm specialises in delivering a set of managed security solutions and private cloud offerings for customers, covering everything from firewalls, UTM’s, application control, data loss protection, web content filtering through to end-point security and mobility security. They support IT security infrastructures in over 54 countries for hundreds of clients ranging from local SME’s to FTSE 100 enterprises, across a variety of sectors including finance, retail, legal, local government, pharmaceuticals and education.
Among the list of requirements Metadigm had for a potential partner, the ability to help expand its European presence in their primary operating market was viewed as a key factor. It also required a data centre that delivered high power densities, outstanding uptime and a robust infrastructure, all of which are critical when delivering managed security services.
Interxion’s London site offers a wide range of connectivity solutions, high-density power configurations and access to 41 carriers and ISPs, including major hubs like LINX and LONAP. This flexibility and coverage delivers a greater user experience to Metadigm and its customers, offering increased bandwidth and redundancy, a key factor for managed security solutions providers. The London data centre is one of Interxion’s 13 Cloud Hubs across Europe and provides organisations such as Metadigm with an optimum environment for the cost-effective development, launch and management of successful cloud-based services.
“When it came to deciding on whom to partner with, the choice was very straightforward. Interxion were able to offer the necessary space, power density and flexibility needed to grow our business”, said Jason Simper, Director at Metadigm. The fact that we are one of the only companies offering managed security services at Interxion and that we could tap into its customer base of over 1000 was also a major draw for us.”
“This announcement further reflects our commitment to providing a world-class infrastructure for organisations such as Metadigm that are looking to develop successful cloud-based services,” said Greg McCulloch, Managing Director at Interxion. “It is also good that through this relationship we are able to offer our customers a greater choice of security partners.”
