CohesiveFT Unveils VNS3 3.5 With Docker Technology for the Co-Creation of Customizable, Flexible Cloud Network Platforms

Virtualize Network Functions and Build Hybrid Clouds With Private Alpha Release

CHICAGO, IL -- (Marketwired) -- 01/28/14 -- CohesiveFT, the original cloud networking company, today announced the availability of VNS3 version 3.5 alpha with Docker integration. VNS3 3.5 now provides the ability to co-create customizable, flexible networks with Docker containers built in, and tailor virtual networking functionality to specific use cases when extending corporate and data center networks to public, private and hybrid clouds. VNS3 3.5 delivers a new way for partners and customers to collaborate on the creation of custom network functions -- including proxy, reverse proxy, WAN optimization, load balancing, and more -- giving IT teams more control over network security and connectivity.

VNS3 version 3.5 -- now available in private alpha for over 20 public, private and hybrid clouds -- also allows customers to:

  • Work with partners and customers and easily share information about tunnel logging and display (to share network information such as SPIs, lifetimes, throughput, etc.);
  • Create network workflows, manage multiple IPsec tunnels, and access the single API interface from a dramatically easier to use web-based UI;
  • Manage role-based security features to ensure identity access and security regardless of network, location, and role;
  • Release notes: find out more about the technology behind the VNS3 3.5 update at www.cohesiveft.com/support/vns3-release-notes

Customer Value:
"With the latest updates in version 3.5, customers can co-create customizable and flexible network platforms to take advantage of network features needed per application and integrated at the cloud network transport layer," said CohesiveFT CEO, Patrick Kerpan. "The VNS3 virtual appliance can be used as a container for adding in additional network functions all within one or more virtual appliances, for ease of management and a reduction in cost. Essentially, if you're connecting to, through and across the clouds, make sure it's a Cohesive connection."

"With the new 3.5 version, we were able to create a much more secure client configuration with the security control needed to work with large, complex network configurations. VNS3's LAN customization settings ensure we get the signing authority, cipher choice, and key length," said Peter Rung, CEO at I.D. Rank Security, Inc. "With this implementation our myKryptofon voice encryption solution goes beyond the high level commercial security standards our customers experience today, to meeting the extended security requirements as defined by DISA and the NSA for many U.S. government agencies."

VNS3 3.5 is available for qualified customers in an alpha version. Contact CohesiveFT for access: www.cohesiveft.com/vns3/alpha
