Verizon Enterprise Solutions is removing another barrier to the adoption of cloud computing in the public sector - including federal state, local agencies and public safety - by expanding availability of its Secure Cloud Interconnect service, a software-defined networking offering that delivers the security, reliability, performance, simplicity and efficiency needed to support mission-critical workloads and applications.

With public sector organizations across federal, state and local, education and public safety embracing the benefits of cloud computing, many struggle with the complexity of seamlessly connecting, managing, and securing their cloud environments which oftentimes extend across multiple clouds and data centers.

Verizon Secure Cloud Interconnect helps simplify this complexity by providing a secure, private Internet connection that features consumption-based bandwidth, pre-provisioned on-demand resources, application performance, multiple classes of service and usage-based billing models with simple provisioning and management via a centralized online portal. The service – now available at more than 30 locations across the Americas, Latin America, Europe and the Asia-Pacific region –  supports cloud (public, private and hybrid) and colocation solutions from a growing roster of connected cloud (Amazon Web Services, Google, HP, Microsoft, Salesforce, Verizon) and data center (CoreSite, Equinix, Verizon) providers.

“Public sector organizations across the U.S. rely on Verizon for secure and reliable networking,” said Mike Maiorana, senior vice president of public sector markets, Verizon Enterprise Solutions. “Our Secure Cloud Interconnect service builds on Verizon’s strengths and addresses many of the barriers impacting public sector cloud adoption, including security, scalability, flexibility and control. Secure Cloud Interconnect delivers the connectivity our public sector clients require to support workload and application deployments across multiple cloud and data center providers.”

Nationwide Availability for the Public Sector

To deliver enterprise-class performance and security, Verizon is deploying its edge routers into third-party data centers to enable pre-integration of networking and interfaces. Using the online portal, public sector organizations purchasing Secure Cloud Interconnect select their cloud partners, location and service information and the service is quickly provisioned.

  • Federal: Secure Cloud Interconnect, now available on Verizon’s Networx Universal and Enterprise contracts, currently offers connections to the FedRAMPSM-certified cloud platforms delivered by Verizon and Microsoft. Additional cloud providers will be added as network build outs and system integration work is completed.
  • State and Local, Education, Public Safety: These organizations, which do not typically require a FedRAMP-certified cloud environment, are able to tap into the full complement of cloud and data center providers with Secure Cloud Interconnect connections.
