Colt adds data services to portfolio

Colt Ceano has enhanced  its offering to enable channel partners to offer customers connectivity to their data and applications as well as enhanced network and web security

Colt, a European information delivery platform, have announced the addition of a range of data services to its portfolio of cloud based ICT services, Colt Ceano. The new data services empower channel partners to offer their SME customers connectivity to business critical data and applications regardless of location or device, as well as enhanced network and web security. Accessing these services via the Colt Ceano platform allows partners to create, manage and deliver tailored solutions to answer their customers’ individual requirements quickly and easily.

“We’re seeing an increasing demand amongst SMEs for cloud services from trusted partners that are supported by robust data connectivity and delivered locally. These enhancements to Colt Ceano meet those needs, and will enable Colt's channel partners to capitalise on the revenue opportunity offered by cloud," according to James Eibisch, research director for IDC's EMEA Telco Cloud Opportunities.

With the addition of IP Access, IAS Mobility, Managed Virtual Firewall, Managed Web Security services to the portfolio, channel partners can now offer an end-to-end solution to their customers, including compute, storage, applications and connectivity with a large range of bandwidth options - up to 100Mbps; provide 99.9% availability guarantee and offer end-to-end security. These new data services, combined with the existing portfolio of on demand ICT services available in a single contract, mean that customers benefit from substantial cost savings and flexibility, while running a reliable and secure network. Customers have the additional peace of mind that their data is hosted locally in one of Colt’s European datacentres.

“Colt is committed to providing partners with a diverse portfolio of services that help them build an end-to-end solution, providing a one-stop-shop for their SME customers. Colt Ceano brings channel partners an on-going revenue stream from businesses looking to gain increased efficiencies and improved performance through data and cloud based services, as well as the possibility to upsell their existing cloud customer base with data services,” said Falk Weinreich, Vice President at Colt. “We already have over 450 partners using Colt Ceano to provide their customers with innovative business-critical services that will help them pre-empt and react to new challenges and opportunities quickly and cost-effectively.”
