Milan, Italy – May 15, 2017 - Enter, a leader in network and cloud services based in Italy, today announces it has expanded its reach into Sparkle Sicily Hub, a next-generation data center in Palermo.  The launch marks the addition of a new European Point of Presence (PoP) for Enter and provides customers with enhanced connectivity from Palermo to and throughout Europe, including Frankfurt, Amsterdam, London, Paris, Madrid, Stockholm and Brussels.  Furthermore, the PoP provides access to the lowest latency paths from Europe to Africa, Asia and the Middle East by enabling direct interconnections to DE-CIX Palermo

As the first Italian Internet Service Provider (ISP) at this location, Enter’s presence at Sicily Hub offers consumers and businesses enhanced access to enterprise-grade internet and network services, including Ethernet access and transport to Europe, MPLS and IPSec Virtual Private Network (VPN), and demux services.  Customers at Enter’s Palermo location can also access Enter Cloud Suite (ECS), the first European, OpenStack-based cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solution.  The new PoP expands Enter’s reach in Italy as well as into Africa, Asia and the Middle East.  Enter’s new Italian PoP also offers services to its neutral interconnection facility in Milan Caldera, a highly connected alternative to businesses looking to co-locate in Marseilles.

“Choosing to establish our newest PoP at Sicily Hub was an easy decision, as its location and service offerings are among the best available,” says Milko Ilari, Head of International Business & Strategy at Enter.  “We’re very excited about the new opportunities this venture will bring, including the ability for customers to access DE-CIX Palermo and multiple diverse submarine cable systems for world-class connectivity.”

Sparkle Sicily Hub is the leading IP gravity center in the Mediterranean region, as its unique location is positioned closer to North Africa, the Mediterranean and the Middle East than any other European peering point. It is also connected to all cable landing stations in Sicily, enabling cost-effective and high-quality connectivity services for customers.

Enter’s new PoP also enables customers to interconnect with carrier-neutral Internet Exchange, DE-CIX Palermo, delivering reduced IP Transit and network costs and improved control over routing and IP traffic flow as well as access to a growing list of networks and in-demand content providers.  In addition, increased network quality allows users to effectively deliver bandwidth-intensive content for an enhanced data experience.

Partnership Allows Webair Customers to Use Microsoft Cloud Services with Increased Levels of Security and Performance

 NEW YORK – May 15, 2017 – Webair, a high-touch, agile Cloud and fully managed infrastructure service provider, today announces that it is a Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute Partner.  Azure ExpressRoute allows Webair customers to easily and securely utilize Microsoft cloud services, including services such as Azure, Office 365 and Dynamics 365, with increased levels of reliability and performance.

ExpressRoute is a private, dedicated network connection between the Microsoft Cloud and Webair’s customers’ IT environments.  The decision to become a Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute Partner is consistent with Webair's overarching strategy of providing customers with direct, private and secure access to hybrid cloud services, and expands its ability to mix and match its own local, low-latency enterprise public cloud as well as third-party hyperscale cloud services.

“By becoming a Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute Partner, Webair’s customers are provided with redundant and diverse paths to the Microsoft Cloud,” explains Michael Christopher Orza, CEO of Webair.  “Azure ExpressRoute will allow our customers to utilize Microsoft cloud services with increased confidence in network performance and security.”

Webair’s cloud infrastructure is housed in Webair-owned facilities and runs on enterprise-grade hardware dedicated to customers and deployed directly into customer environments.  Its direct network connectivity model and ability to deploy dedicated hardware per customer allow the secure and private consumption of scalable and SLA-backed cloud services with no physical connectivity to the public internet or to other customers. Today, many of Webair’s healthcare provider and enterprise customers, for example, need to bypass the public internet and consume cloud services as if they were on-premises.  Becoming a Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute Partner and gaining a private, dedicated network connection between Microsoft Azure data centers and Webair customers’ IT environments now provides the best of both options without having to sacrifice existing network security models.

Webair has executed many hybrid cloud solutions for its customers, which often include a hybrid of services such as Enterprise Private Cloud, Managed Security, Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) and Colocation as well as connectivity to Microsoft Azure, air-gapped and bypassing the public internet where possible.  An air gap means that the customer’s network or system is physically isolated from the internet, thus providing added security against intruders.

In becoming a Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute Partner, Webair has established a more formal relationship with Microsoft to meet its clients’ ongoing growth and demand for future implementations.  Webair plans on offering more managed services on top of Microsoft Azure as its customers, including healthcare and enterprise organizations, seek more hybrid services.  Becoming a Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute Partner is but one critical first step in meeting these demands.

Webair will be attending International Telecoms Week (ITW), the annual meeting for the global wholesale telecommunications community, taking place May 14-17, 2017 in Chicago.  To request a meeting with the Webair team at the event, email This email address is being protected from spambots.

The proactively managed service protects organizations from malicious Internet traffic, ensuring the continuity and security of their business operations.

GTT’s DDoS Mitigation augments the company’s IP Transit and Dedicated Internet Access services, providing automated, real-time detection and mitigation of attack traffic and returning clean traffic to the impacted organization.

DDoS attacks continue to evolve in size, sophistication and frequency, costing companies millions of dollars in damage across intellectual property, brand reputation and lost customers. Gartner recommends that “DDoS mitigation services should be a standard part of business continuity/disaster recovery planning, and should be included in all internet service procurements when the business depends on the availability of internet connectivity.” [1]

“As the operator of a top five, Tier 1 IP backbone, GTT has the network capacity and mitigation capability to defend against even complex DDoS attacks,” stated Rick Calder, GTT president and CEO. “Our DDoS Mitigation service expands our Managed Security suite, and provides our clients with peace of mind that their network and business remain safe from threats.”
