MIAMI – Verizon Terremark today announced that it has increased availability, security and flexibility for its leading Enterprise Cloud service. Enterprise Cloud computing platforms are being expanded in two of the company’s data center facilities located in Dallas and London, as enterprises and governments across geographies demand immediate access and availability to cloud resources.

Verizon Terremark extended the federal-grade security controls previously available exclusively through the Enterprise Cloud Federal Edition to all its commercial customers. Enterprises can now leverage advanced security technologies including role-based access controls and certificate based multifactor authentication. These enhanced security features allow customers to bring enterprise-class authentication and access control through the use of the customers’ certificates and tokens to manage cloud resources.

“The ability to provide rapid access to cloud environments with high level of security shows our leadership and commitment to the Infrastructure-as-a-Service market, not only domestically but on a global scale,” said Chris Drumgoole, Verizon Terremark’s senior vice president of global operations. “Through the enterprise-scale cloud ecosystem we have built, Verizon Terremark is in the best position to serve enterprises and governments and enable them to improve the lives of consumers and citizens through the use of the best technology available.”

Additionally, as a response to the strong demand for hybrid clouds and to further simplify adoption, Verizon Terremark will be extending the Enterprise Cloud service to include instance-based compute and storage. This feature allows customers to pay for their cloud services per virtual machine versus reserving resource capacity, as they continue to have complete awareness of usage through embedded CloudSwitch software technology. This standardized migration procedure removes adoption barriers by enabling private and public sector organizations to gain greater flexibility and control over migration to and from cloud environments and traditional computing environments without modifying workloads and applications. 

“We are excited to be able to offer expanded flexibility to our customers, without locking into our technology, as well as providing greater usability and integration,” said John Considine, Verizon Terremark’s chief technology officer. “By over-simplifying workload portability, we give the control back to the enterprise, as we enable them with efficiency and optimization of an elastic solution.”
