Tightly integrating virtualization with intelligent orchestration offers improved ROI, faster time to deployment, and simplified operations
Dallas, TX and Ottawa, ON (Canada) – July 13, 2022 – DataBank, a leading provider of enterprise-class colocation, interconnection, and managed services, has partnered with Corsa Security, the leader in automating firewall virtualization. The Corsa Security solution enables DataBank to deploy, scale, and optimize its Palo Alto Networks ML-powered VM-Series Virtual Next-Generation Firewalls with speed, simplicity, and savings.
DataBank can now deliver a streamlined and scalable managed virtual firewall service (VFS) to its customers in several markets. DataBank can also leverage the platform for additional security services, thereby, creating even more opportunities in the future.
“We are finding a growing number of customers who no longer want to own and manage physical firewalls,” explains Jeremy Pease, senior vice president of managed services operations at DataBank. “The challenge for us was to quickly expand our existing managed virtual firewall offering to additional geographic markets as our business has grown rapidly over the last 12 months.”
“We’re delighted with the success of our deployment with DataBank,” says Eduardo Cervantes, CEO, Corsa Security. “With our Corsa Security Orchestrator, DataBank can now automatically manage Palo Alto Networks VM-Series Virtual Firewalls on a per customer basis according to individual enterprise requirements. We look forward to helping more and more of DataBank’s customers realize the business agility possible with managed virtual firewalls.”
“Palo Alto Networks provides enterprise class security capabilities delivered through a variety of virtualized form factors to meet the needs of customers at every step of their digital transformation journey,” says Mukesh Gupta, vice president, product management, Palo Alto Networks. “The VM-Series Virtual Firewalls along with flexible licensing models enable seamless elasticity to satisfy constantly changing business needs and objectives.”
The Corsa Security solution at DataBank leverages intelligent orchestration and automation to enable a hosted, managed VFS with speed, simplicity, and savings. At the heart of the solution is the Corsa Security Orchestrator software — a single portal to deploy, scale, and optimize the virtual firewalls across geographically separate data centers. It aggregates the view from multiple VM-Series Virtual Firewalls to show the health of the systems, server resource allocation, infrastructure, and network utilization. Built on an intuitive UI, the Orchestrator simplifies all the complex operations associated with running on-premise virtual firewalls so a customer support team can add more at the click of a button.
