InSpeed Networks, a provider of SD-WAN solutions, has expanded data center coverage to include sites at London, Frankfurt and Paris in Europe and Tokyo, Seoul, Singapore, and Mumbai in Asia Pacific.
InSpeed Networks said new data centers will come up in Australia, the Philippines and Malaysia in 2019.
The expansion enhances InSpeed’s ability to serve customers beyond their existing North American data centers in California, Texas, Virginia, Ohio, Florida, New Jersey and Quebec, by maximizing performance and reducing the risk of downtime.
“Each of these global data centers brings the InSpeed cloud closer to customers, improving performance by minimizing the latency created when data travels long distances,” said Michael Mansouri, chairman and CEO of InSpeed Networks.
Each data center that InSpeed utilizes holds certifications/attestations such as: ISO 27001, SOC 1, and SOC2 to provide third party verified assurance that they protect customer data and end user privacy as required by HIPAA, PCI DSS, GDPR, and United States state privacy laws.
The European Union (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) also played a role in InSpeed’s choice of data center facilities as well.
“The GDPR imposes strict requirements for the security and privacy of the personal data of EU citizens and favors the location of that data within the EU,” Ed Basart, chief strategy officer and founder of InSpeed Networks, said.
