With 11 of the top 12 global carriers relying on Crossbeam to deploy a consolidated, scalable and high-performance security architecture that protects networks and provides the infrastructure to deliver cloud-based security services, Crossbeam reports 2010 as a milestone year.
The company’s security infrastructure can handle the growing data traffic volumes and continues to make strong inroads into the service provider market as demand for its X-Series security platform continues to grow. Fierce Telecom presents a press release by the company which claims successful deployments of Crossbeam’s technology include Telef?nica SA’s O2, the UK’s leading mobile phone operator; NTT Communications (NTT Com), the international and long distance service arm of NTT (Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation); and Portugal Telecom, the largest telecommunications provider in Portugal.
“‘Service providers face a difficult task trying to meet customer demand in a world that’s nearly always connected. More than ever, security remains a top priority,’ said Jim Freeze, Crossbeam’s vice president of marketing and business development. ‘Crossbeam has emerged as top competitor in the carrier security market because we continue to invest in the X-Series and innovate to deliver the enhanced networking capabilities and security infrastructure these customers require to support fast and secure delivery of data over their networks.’”
