Pareto Networks Sets New Standard for Cloud-based Enterprise Networking

SUNNYVALE, Calif., June 29. Pareto Networks today unveiled the industry's first cloud-based distributed networking solution, transforming the way businesses will deploy and operate distributed networks. Cloud-based networking delivers enterprise-class network capabilities around the globe, via a highly resilient, multi-tenant application that requires no capital investment in networking equipment.

Pareto accelerates and simplifies network deployment and operations, delivers 100% centralized visibility and control, and offers the network application as an innovative, pay-as-you-grow subscription. With Pareto, enterprises can now securely roll out distributed locations, such as teleworkers, small branch offices, or mobile workgroups in minutes, with no capital investment and the flexibility to quickly scale the network up or down as business needs change.

"The parallels are striking between networking today and customer relationship management software of ten years ago," said Matthew Palmer, co-founder and CEO of Pareto Networks. "Deploying and managing a CRM solution was overly complex, time-intensive and extremely expensive before entered the picture with their cloud-based service and changed everything. The same could be said for networking; before today, enterprises had no choice but to purchase expensive equipment, build out the infrastructure and hire scores of experts to troubleshoot and keep the network running. It's time for this to change."

With its cloud-based service, Pareto eliminates the costs and complexities associated with legacy, hardware-based solutions, by bundling Ethernet, Wi-Fi and 3G-ready network appliances at no extra cost. By leveraging the cloud and existing broadband connectivity, deployment of new remote locations can be accomplished in minutes. Pareto's cloud-based application gives enterprises centralized control over all their network and security policies, and provides visibility of critical network performance metrics. "It was becoming increasingly difficult to support all of our distributed users," said Len Lombardo, CTO at Taconic Capital. "Pareto's cloud-based networking solutions removed the complexity and enabled us to quickly and cost-effectively scale to deliver full network and security services wherever our users are located."

Managed Service Providers who are looking to reduce their costs without impacting the performance of their services can also benefit from Pareto's offering. "Cloud-based network services have the ability to significantly streamline network operations and bring a comprehensive suite of services to both mid-size and distributed enterprises," said Mark Fabbi, Vice President, Distinguished Analyst, Gartner, Inc. "Vendors with a range of multi-tenant service capabilities for access, security, address management and policy control can reduce provisioning time and provide capabilities for a dynamic, distributed workforce."
