Michael Kochanik, Global Head of Revenue and Alliances at NetFoundry

Application-specific networking specialist NetFoundry has established a partnership with IT infrastructure player BA to provide banks and other enterprises with programmable, software-only overlay connectivity to connect their apps between any devices and any clouds.

NetFoundry works across a number of verticals, including financial services, where it has a track record in providing secure financial B2B extranets and financial multi-cloud.

It said it will now be helping BA to build on its portfolio of enterprise mobility, security, virtualization and digitization of information to remove application connectivity barriers and become agile, portable, massively distributed and unleash enterprise innovation. BA specializes in devising, building, securing, maintaining and troubleshooting the IT infrastructure that a digital society needs.

“BA have first hand experience and battle scars from fixing customer solutions which don’t work due to enterprises using legacy network technology originally designed decades ago,” said Michael Kochanik, Global Head of Revenue and Alliances at NetFoundry. “Now that they can provide on-demand, software-only and self-healing overlay connectivity that makes the ubiquitous public internet secure, reliable and performant, their ‘Common Sense as a Service’ offering just got better.”

“We are thrilled to be working with NetFoundry and bring a new approach to networking which distributes network capability to wherever apps need them, independent of underlying infrastructure,” added Jan Guldentops, CEO and Researcher at BA. “Fundamentally, this will help us to solve many of our customers headaches, become digital organisations and get the most value from their apps and data.”
