Layered Technologies Launches Next Generation Secure Cloud

PLANO, Texas, Sept. 12 — Layered Technologies, Inc. (Layered Tech), a leading global provider of compliant and secure cloud and hosting services supporting mission-critical e-business applications, today launched the Layered Tech Cloud Data Center, a next-generation cloud platform that combines Layered Tech's complete management, security and compliance capabilities with self-service functionality, creating a more agile and secure cloud.

"Layered Tech's next-gen cloud allows enterprises to run their critical workloads in a cloud environment to accommodate complex security needs and meet PCI-DSS and HIPAA compliance requirements," said Kevin Van Mondfrans, Vice President of Product Management at Layered Tech. "Security and transparency are Layered Tech tenets, and our new Cloud Data Center includes the security and compliance management capabilities for which we are known."

The Layered Tech Cloud Data Center includes a robust self-service portal, giving customers tremendous control, visibility and management of their cloud environments, as well as the ability to not only control compute and storage resources, but also select from Layered Tech's extensive managed platforms, security and compliant-hosting services.

"SaaS providers whose core business operates in regulated industries can give themselves a huge competitive advantage by running within a cloud platform that is both agile and able to deliver airtight security and compliance performance, and that's what Layered Tech has built with its next-gen Cloud Data Center," said Michael Wolfe, CIO of Ontario Systems, the leading provider of accounts receivable and revenue cycle management solutions for the collections and healthcare industries. "Equally important to the cloud infrastructure itself is having a cloud provider that excels at managing highly complex environments, understands its clients' business objectives and can deliver high-performance solutions that are very secure and can achieve compliance. Ontario Systems has found that provider in Layered Tech."

With the Layered Tech Cloud Data Center, enterprises are no longer forced to choose between greater business agility or highly secure and compliant-ready cloud environments. As a leading managed services provider, Layered Tech works with each customer to determine the most beneficial mix of managed services to meet their unique set of business, security and compliance objectives.

According to John Pescatore, Vice President at research firm Gartner, Inc., in his Securing and Managing Cloud Computing report, "This is an important time to be thinking through how you will secure your business's use of cloud computing. IT architectures and processes will need to change and extend – and the same is true for security capabilities. Now is the time to be planning how to ensure company and customer data can be protected when public and private cloud services are used and also how security policies and architectures can take advantage of cloud delivery to actually increase levels of security."

Layered Tech's unique cloud platform enables businesses to leverage its security and compliance expertise while running critical workloads containing sensitive data in a self-service, secure cloud environment. In addition, Layered Tech is the only managed services provider in the market to back its PCI-DSS and HIPAA compliance services with Compliance Guaranteed, which promises that compliance customers will pass every IT audit or assessment sanctioned by the relevant industry or regulatory entity 100 percent of the time. Layered Tech also provides FISMA-compliant hosting via its recent acquisition of NEW WORLD APPS, Inc.

"Layered Tech has a proven track record of leading the market in providing secure and compliant cloud and hosting solutions to customers, and our new Cloud Data Center further demonstrates our continued commitment to give clients the business agility they want on a fully trusted platform," said Brad Hokamp, President of Layered Tech. "There are many hosting and cloud providers in the market, but Layered Tech separates itself from the pack by fusing managed services and technology to create a high-performance, secure and compliant cloud environment like our new Cloud Data Center."
