Startup Infiot has launched Cloud Services Fabric (CSF), a cloud networking service designed to provide remote users, sites, and Internet of Things (IoT) devices with secure and optimized connectivity to any cloud. The service delivers several key features for cloud networking, including zero trust network access (ZTNA), multi-cloud connectivity, and edge compute.
The year 2020 has brought a heightened focus on security, multi-cloud, and remote connectivity, as covered in Futuriom’s Secure Edge and SASE report and Future of Multi-cloud Networking report. These trends should serve Infiot well, as it targets both areas and fills in some of the gaps in the software-defined wide-area networking (SD-WAN) market. The SD-WAN market has been very successful but many of the products in that market don’t have the features to serve edge markets, specifically devices and IoT, which require smaller footprints and cheaper hardware. As covered before in Futuriom, Infiot’s Intelligent Access solution comprises a small, square device that supports wired and wireless connections and LTE and 5G cellular networks.
Infiot is delivering these connectivity services in a software-as-a-service (SaaS) model. With the Cloud Service Fabric (CSF), Infiot will offer:
- Secure and optimized “Cloud On-Ramps” to the most popular SaaS and cloud applications.
- Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) provided as-a-service for all remote users, devices, and sites.
- Automated connectivity to multi-cloud, SaaS, and infrastructure-as-a-service.
- 4G/5G support, advanced routing, and edge compute functions.
