Reports from several reliable sources indicate that AT&T® NetBond for Cloud customers recently acquired enhance connectivity to over 100 additional service providers and cloud software that are hosted on the AWS platform as a part of the latest AWS Direct Connect (DX) Bundle.
Mo Katibeh, AT&T’s SVP for Advanced Solutions said, “We are seeing more and more business customers shifting to use software-as-a-service applications in the cloud — in fact, IDC expects the worldwide SaaS market to reach $123B in 2020. With NetBond for Cloud, users can bypass the public internet to connect to cloud solutions through a highly secure connection to a growing number of SaaS providers via AWS Direct Connect.”
Terry Wise, VP for Channels and Alliances at AT&T® stated, “For many businesses, managing complex network deployments and security risks is a key priority when migrating information to the cloud. The capabilities we are working to provide with AT&T® help address those issues by providing additional flexibility and control over an even greater number of AWS cloud services.”
The Chief Financial Officer of Brazos River Authority, David Thompson said, “Brazos River Authority was very impressed with Software as a Service (SaaS) and decided to take advantage of the agility and cost effectiveness of the cloud, but we were concerned about providing our end users a consistent, predictable and highly secure connection. With NetBond for Cloud, we can connect in minutes to the AWS Cloud and our enterprise resource management application, knowing that our network connection is private and delivers predictable performance when we need it, with the ability to scale on demand.”
