Kinetic by Windstream is now offering Cloud Connect, a secure private access hub that connects directly to third-party public and private cloud service providers through the business’ WAN.

Cloud Connect improves access, better secures transmission of data, and creates a simpler network architecture to manage, Kinetic said. It functions across all network options, with bandwidth capacity ranging from 50 Mbps to 10 Gbps.

Kinetic Business said Cloud Connect is an ideal add-on to an existing SD-WAN, MPLS architecture to complete the business network.

“Today, businesses rely on cloud services, along with remote work solutions that include audio and video conferencing,” he said. “But cloud services are only as strong as the networks that connect them. That’s why we offer this cost-effective, secure, dedicated connectivity that supports business apps and scales as customers add new ones.”

In addition to a fiber-backed network, Kinetic Business offers a security portfolio for customers ranging in size from small to enterprise. The portfolio includes professional services, DDoS, managed network security, MPLS/L3VPN & VLS, managed router, SD-WAN, enhanced LAN and Wi-Fi.

We recently compiled a list of 20 top SD-WAN providers offering products and services via channel partners.

Kinetic by Windstream provides premium broadband, entertainment and security services through an enhanced fiber network and 5G fixed wireless service to consumers and businesses primarily in rural areas in 18 states.

Earlier this month, Windstream Enterprise unveiled new feature enhancements and hardware available for its VMware-powered SD-WAN. The three new SD-WAN edge devices are the next-generation technology from VMware. These new devices offer better performance, the company said. They include processors that support additional functionally, simplified design and deployment with less complexity.
