SingleHop Launches Enterprise On Demand Technology Partner Program

SingleHop Makes Best-of-Breed Enterprise-Class Technologies Available On Demand; Alert Logic and Radware First Partners in Security

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Sep 29, 2014) -  SingleHop, the leading provider of cloud-enabled managed hosting and on-demand infrastructure, today announced the Enterprise On Demand Technology Partner Program, a curated ecosystem of leading enterprise-class technologies that are fully integrated into SingleHop's offerings. Through this unique partner program, SingleHop can offer the perfect combination of enterprise-class technologies from industry-leading vendors, integrated into its own proprietary automation engine, to deliver the best cloud infrastructure experience for companies of any size. SingleHop's inaugural partners are Alert Logic and Radware, two companies with unique expertise in the security space.

"We have a long history of leveraging our partners to deliver high quality cloud infrastructure and managed services to our customers around the world. Today, I am very proud to announce a formal program recognizing our outstanding partners, the launch of our Enterprise On Demand Technology Partner Program," said Zak Boca, CEO of SingleHop. "Teaming up with category leaders like Alert Logic and Radware in the Security space, allows us to provide higher levels of security and compliance to small and medium enterprises around the world, in an efficient, automated way."

Security is a Mission Critical Element of Infrastructure
At the outset, SingleHop chose to highlight two industry-leading security providers who joined the new partner program. With cyber-threats on the rise and numerous preventable security breaches in the news, making sure that one's data is secure is a mission critical element of any infrastructure decision these days. The vast number of options, highly technical implementation, steep costs, and overall complexity that security generally entails can be truly daunting to a small or medium sized enterprise. SingleHop provides the expertise to make smart choices and the access to great technologies provided by partners to make the implementation seamless and easy to manage.

SingleHop chose Alert Logic and Radware as inaugural partners based on their innovative, premium, best-in-class approaches to application and server security, and DDoS (distributed denial of service) attack mitigation. Their solutions are available to SingleHop customers immediately. 

Alert Logic, the leading provider of Security-as-a-Service solutions for the cloud, offers a platform of fully managed products and services to keep business' data and infrastructure safe and compliant. Whether a company's IT infrastructure is on-premises, in a public cloud, private cloud or hybrid, the Alert Logic portfolio of solutions and services allow unprecedented visibility into its business environment, providing continuous protection, deep security insight and lower overall security costs. With Alert Logic Security-as-a-Service, businesses receive market-leading security tools, a fully outsourced and managed SaaS delivery model, and integrated 24×7 security operations center services to monitor and provide expert guidance, deployable anywhere a customer has IT infrastructure -- including the cloud.

"While cloud platforms tend to be inherently secure, applications built on top of cloud platforms are not protected by the same security posture and must be secured separately, with tools developed specifically for cloud applications," said Kyle Smith, Sr. Director of Partner Marketing at Alert Logic. "Alert Logic solutions are built specifically for cloud applications and protect more than 2,700 customers with a unique combination of market-leading security technologies and human expertise to identify and escalate threats. Partnering with SingleHop will enable us to extend our protection to a broader set of customers, including companies that haven't traditionally been able to afford the same protection as large enterprises." 

Radware brings to the table DefensePro, an element of their Attack Mitigation System, which is comprised of a suite of security technologies and services designed to detect and mitigate cyber-attacks. DefensePro is recognized as the most effective anti-DDoS protection solution on the market today. It's deployed by an increasingly large segment of organizations that depend on highly available operations in order to conduct business -- including the financial services community, ecommerce and communication service providers.

"DefensePro and Radware AMS enable cloud and hosting service providers, like SingleHop, to not only protect their critical infrastructure from cyber-attacks but to also defend their customers and key business services which are extended to their hosted client base," said Carl Herberger, vice president of security solutions for Radware. "For over ten years, Radware's security suite was designed with multi-tenanted service providers in mind. For SingleHop, that means turning their Enterprise On Demand, to a secure Enterprise On Demand and allows them to build efficient security businesses and accelerate their ROI." 

SingleHop's security solutions can be deployed on any of its Enterprise infrastructure products, including Virtual Servers, Dedicated Servers, and Dedicated Private Clouds.
