Security provider Zenedge launches mega-POPs in Equinix data centers

11 Apr 2017

Cloud-based security provider ZENEDGE has invested mega-points-of-presence (Mega POPs) in data centers across Asia, Europe, the US and Canada, which will increase the company’s capacity tenfold.

The company is also focusing on expansion and providing its security solutions to global Equinix customers through Equinix Marketplace.

“Zenedge is pleased to respond to strong customer demand with a worldwide network expansion as we continue to grow our install base faster than the average market growth. We chose Equinix as our strategic data center provider because of their global geographic presence, PCI compliance, and level of service,” says ZenEdge CEO Yuri Frayman.

The Equinix Marketplace will also help deliver the web application protection and DDoS protection for more than 150 data centers worldwide.

“Equinix continues to grow its global interconnection platform to better meet the needs of our customers such as Zenedge. Additionally, we consistently hear that security is top of mind for businesses globally so access to more security service providers in our facilities is a growing benefit of the business ecosystems developing on Platform Equinix,” comments Lance Weaver, vice president, Offer Management and Platform Strategy, Equinix.

In just three years since its formation, the Florida-based company has invested heavily in its security services. Its most recent solution is Bot Manager, which features bot detection and mitigation technology that combines user behavioral analysis and device fingerprinting. 

“Bot detection and prevention continue to be top of mind for organizations as web applications including classifieds, real estate portals, e-commerce and travel sites are regularly targeted, resulting in performance, financial and data loss,” Frayman said about the release.
