AT&T Expands Service Offerings on Amazon Web Services

Enterprise Application Providers Infor and Pegasystems Become Part of the AT&T NetBond® Ecosystem via AWS Direct Connect Bundle Program

AT&T today announced that it is integrating AT&T NetBond® with the AWS Direct Connect (DX) bundle to offer highly secure access to Infor and Pegasystems, two leading application and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) providers.

The SaaS architecture enhanced by the AT&T NetBond AWS DX bundle is part of a set of advanced hybrid reference architectures that simplify network management and boost performance. This helps AWS SaaS partners quickly and easily move customers to the cloud in a scalable and highly secure manner using the AT&T MPLS network.

AT&T NetBond creates a highly secure connection to AWS SaaS providers using a customer’s AT&T Virtual Private Network. This allows users to bypass the public internet, enhancing reliability and performance.

“We help businesses get added value out of the cloud and software services they already use through our leading network. It’s the foundation for all of our integrated cloud solutions,” says Mo Katibeh, senior vice president, Advanced Solutions, AT&T Business Solutions. “As a result, the network’s performance and scale provides highly-secure access to key, cloud-based applications from nearly anywhere and at any time.”

As part of the AWS Direct Connect program, AWS Partner Network (APN) and SaaS technology Partners Infor and Pegasystems will become a part of the AT&T NetBond ecosystem. AT&T NetBond is now active in seven domestic and global AWS Direct Connect regions including: Northern CA, Northern VA, Oregon, Ireland, Frankfurt, Singapore, and Sydney.

“AT&T NetBond provides a fast and reliable connection to the Infor Cloud environment” said Brian Rose, senior vice president, Infor Labs. “AT&T NetBond lets us integrate seamlessly and securely with our customers' networks. Further, it simplifies network management for an optimized customer experience.”

“AWS-powered Pega® Cloud enables enterprises to provide their customers with exceptional experiences at every stage of the buying cycle – from marketing to sales to customer service,” said Mike Pyle, senior vice president, engineering and product development, Pegasystems. “AWS’ integration with AT&T NetBond gives these businesses a new path to connect to our customer engagement software in a highly-secure and reliable way.”

Benefits of NetBond:

  • Simplicity: Works with existing AT&T Virtual Private Network to connect directly to leading cloud providers. No additional equipment or access lines required.
  • Security: Isolates traffic to avoid public internet security risks.
  • Cost Savings: Controls costs by adjusting cloud and network resources on demand. In minutes, users get what they need at that moment.
  • Performance: Get consistent and predictable performance and availability for cloud services.
  • Compatibility: Works with leading cloud providers using patented technology.

AT&T will be at booth 2232 during AWS re:Invent.
