Tech Intelligence Bulletin (HG Insights) – Cato Networks, the cloud-native carrier, has announced the expansion of the Cato Cloud into Calgary and Toronto, Canada.
The move complements Cato’s existing PoPs (point of presence) in Montreal and Vancouver and comes as Canadian companies look for an affordable MPLS alternative, strong network security, and improved cloud connectivity for their digital transformation initiatives.
North American strategy
“Canada is a key component of Cato’s overall North American strategy. With our expansion to Calgary and Toronto, Canadian enterprises can provide affordable, optimal and secure connectivity for both in-country and global locations and users,” said Alon Alter, Vice President of Worldwide Sales, Cato Networks.
The expansion into Calgary and Toronto is the latest example of Cato’s commitment to Canada and the entire North American region. Today, Cato has 17 PoPs in-region and more than 45 PoPs worldwide, the most of any global private backbone.
More agile network operations
Cato customers connect their datacenters, branches, mobile users, and cloud resources to the nearest PoP in Canada and across the globe. Cato PoPs are interconnected by multiple, tier-1 carriers, dynamically selecting the optimum path for every packet. Advanced security services in Cato Cloud protect all connected resources against network-based threats. Without rigid and costly connectivity or fragmented and complex IT infrastructure, visibility and control improve, and network operations become simpler, more agile.
