A new startup has made some very bold claims. The company's remote connectivity services are at least 30x better than VPN, SD-WAN, and ZTNA solutions.
It's not something we can independently verify at this time, but if there's any truth to this claim, it would be the Holy Grail of remote connectivity.
The company in question is called Cloudbrink, and the press release says tech radar proThe company says its Hybrid Access as a Service (HAaaS) solution has been tested by NetworkLabs Broadband Test and that its service “can be used over unreliable Internet connections, even when completely secure.” It concluded that application performance would improve by more than 30 times.
Problem and Solution Description Steve Broadhead, Director of Broadband Testing, said there is always a trade-off between performance and security. “If you use a VPN, for example, you can expect to immediately lose up to 90% of your effective bandwidth,” he said, adding that most SSE services and ZTNA services also have a negative impact on performance. Ta.
“What’s remarkable in Cloudbrink’s case is that even a fully secure ZTNA service delivers significantly faster performance compared to the same connection without adding anything,” Broadhead added. I did.
Cloudbrink also noted that the Fortune 100 entertainment and media company benchmarked its services against some of the most popular service providers in the VPN, SD-WAN, and ZTNA industries, so the company also did the same. He said he urged them to do so.
“Our service was much faster than existing platforms, so the company initially suspected something was wrong with its test equipment,” said Prakash Mana, chief executive officer of Cloudblink. Ta. “Cloudbrink performed better than a direct connection with security turned off. I have asked you to do this.”
However, testing in a controlled environment and actual use are two different things. Broadhead said he had discovered “many scenarios” that “significantly exceed” the 30x figure, particularly in more difficult situations. “The Cloudbrink solution increased throughput and reduced transfer times even under perfect network conditions.”
If the above results actually appear, we will hear about them sooner or later.
