“The world is undergoing a paradigm shift in how businesses address networking and security, especially as work patterns continue to evolve,” said Eddie Ho, Director, AsiaNet Technologies. “Becoming part of the Cato Networks channel allows us to provide a solution that can deliver both networking and security as a global, cloud-native service. Using the Cato SASE Cloud, our customers can easily and efficiently connect and secure their remote workers and cloud resources, as well as their branch offices and other locations.”
Cato Strengthens Its Global Backbone with a New PoP in Hong Kong
Cato also deployed a second PoP in Hong Kong to support the rapidly growing customer demand in the region. All Cato’s 70+ PoPs are already fully redundant. With a second PoP in region, users are further protected against unforeseen datacenter outages. If a problem occurs in a datacenter hosting a Cato PoP, such as the one that recently struck the Interxion datacenter in the UK, Cato’s network is designed to automatically switch network traffic to the closest unaffected PoP.
“Having PoPs in two of Hong Kong’s premier datacenters ensures our customers won’t miss a beat in the event of an unexpected downtime,” said Aviram Katzenstein, VP Operations at Cato. “This strengthens our commitment to be the best global provider of SASE cloud services to enterprises with offices in Hong Kong, China, and worldwide.”
