New SaaS offerings reduce complexity, enabling easy installation and affordable solutions
INDIA – Today F5 (NASDAQ: FFIV) announced new point of presence (PoP) sites in India. With others anticipated, the initial sites are located in Mumbai and Chennai, at GPX One in Equinix, and Sify (with the backhaul TCP carrier, Tata Communications Ltd.), respectively. These new PoPs extend F5’s rapidly growing PoP infrastructure and global network further into India. The F5 Global Network is one of the world’s premier peering networks, providing secure connectivity for distributed applications across multi-cloud, on-prem, and edge environments.
These new sites support F5 Distributed Cloud Services through a software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform that reduces complexity and enables easy provisioning of application services with no hardware or software installation needed. This approach provides customers with a single console to manage and secure their applications wherever they are deployed.
“With the increasing cyberattacks and applications moving onto the cloud, businesses in India are concerned about their traffic being handled outside the country,” said Dhananjay Ganjoo, Managing Director for India and SAARC at F5. “With the launch of these PoPs, we can contain and process all traffic in-country, providing improved agility and better security for customers, including businesses that constantly deal with sensitive data.”
The launch of these local PoPs provides F5 customers in India with convenient access to F5 Distributed Cloud Services. Customers can easily enable any service from the console and only pay for what they use, making the solution very cost-effective.
