Orange Business Services is extending its core Business VPN service with Business VPN Internet, which is part of the Orange Business Services Hybrid Network strategy.
This service is designed to meet the growing demand from multinational corporations (MNCs) for high-performance, secure access to Internet-based cloud and web services, according to the company.
To deliver Business VPN Internet, Orange Business Services has initially invested in 15 global Internet gateways on five continents. These gateways are currently available in London, Frankfurt, Stockholm, Amsterdam, Hong Kong, Singapore, Mumbai, Sydney, Tokyo, New York, Atlanta, San Francisco, Sao Paulo, Johannesburg and Bahrain.
Business VPN Internet is delivered as an extension of Business VPN. Customers have a single provider for both IP VPN and Internet services, which reduces their management overhead.
“By seamlessly integrating secure Internet and cloud services into our core network, we are able to support new ways of working and deliver the best possible end-user experience,” says Pierre-Louis Biaggi, head of the Network Solutions Business Unit, Orange Business Services.
“Ultimately, Hybrid Networks as we conceive them at Orange Business Services, help drive the move toward digital transformation by supporting the new generation of Internet-based services,” he added.
Global engineering professional services company Aurecon is an early adopter of the service. “We chose Business VPN Internet to enhance our global collaboration, security, productivity, customer service and lower our costs,” says Sean Elwick, head of IS, Aurecon.
