Calgary, Alberta (PRWEB) June 25, 2013
Hatsize, a leading cloud-based training lab provider for software and hardware products, today announced it is seeing a clear trend where security companies are embracing and adopting cloud labs.
One of the top trends at this year’s RSA Conference is that cloud computing has moved from being a buzzword to a more segmented, specific set of technologies that is being adopted and deployed across the board even with security companies. Sanjay Ramnath, director of product management for Barracuda Networks confirmed that, "Things are starting to settle down [into specific use cases] where IT is leveraging the cloud for specific things."
One of the specific use cases for cloud computing among security companies is virtual labs, which are used to schedule, manage, automate and deliver online demos, hands-on product workshops and proof-of-concept trials with prospects as well as instructor-led and self-paced training and certification for employees, partners, and customers worldwide at any time.
“In the last two years, Hatsize has tripled the number of security clients who are using our cloud-based labs,” said Guy Hummel, Hatsize CEO. “Since Hatsize provides a secure and scalable lab platform, security companies can do everything they need to launch their products globally using Hatsize as a hosted cloud service. This enables security companies to securely and cost-effectively build their businesses faster around the world without adding any equipment or staff.”
Hatsize has seen rapid acceptance of its cloud-based training lab solution, with especially strong adoption in the high tech industry with security companies. To meet demand, the company has substantially increased datacenter capacity globally. Hatsize’s widespread adoption has been driven by overwhelmingly positive customer response.
