Virtela Remote Access Service a Hit for High Noon Entertainment

Virtela's Cloud-Based Remote Access and Proactive Service Support Growth for Television Production Company

Key Enterprise Benefits:

  • Cloud-based SSL VPN service delivers secure performance without upfront expense
  • Fully managed network services allow IT staff to focus on critical business needs
  • Proactive network monitoring results in more efficient problem resolution

DENVER, April 27, 2010 - Virtela, the world's largest independent managed network services company, today announced that it is providing High Noon Entertainment with secure remote access and virtual private network (VPN) connectivity between its offices. High Noon Entertainment produces a number of hit reality television shows, including Cake Boss, House Hunters, and Tough Love.

High Noon turned to Virtela to provide a reliable and scalable network to connect the company's Denver headquarters, Los Angeles production studio and a number of remote workers without taxing its limited IT resources.

"High Noon is growing rapidly, but we have a very small IT staff, so we need a provider that truly understands and delivers on our needs," said Paul Holden, media technology manager at High Noon. "Virtela contacts us proactively if there's an issue and the performance is excellent, so I often don't even think about the network. That's the way a network should be."

High Noon takes advantage of Virtela's cloud-based remote access services to provide secure and reliable anytime, anywhere connectivity for remote users. By accessing the SSL VPN service from Virtela's network cloud, High Noon enjoys enterprise-class remote access without the management burden or equipment expenses typically associated with traditional remote access solutions.

"Virtela's remote access service is critical for our accounting team, which includes a number of remote workers," continued Holden. "They're able to swiftly access all the applications they need just as if they were at our headquarters and Virtela's virtualized service enables us to avoid upfront capital costs."

"Media and entertainment is an exciting and growing industry for us, and we're pleased to have added High Noon to our customer roster," said Vab Goel, Virtela CEO and partner at Norwest Venture Partners. "Virtela's commitment to innovative service delivery, especially through cloud-based services, gives customers a high performance yet cost-effective network solution and the peace of mind that comes from consistently receiving the support they deserve."
