Cloudbrink raises $25M for hybrid access-as-a-service solution

Cloudbrink announced its emergence from stealth after raising $25 million in funding, as the company continues to improve an SD-WAN platform it describes as hybrid access-as-a-service, according to Fierce Telecom. Calling it a new model for distributed connectivity, Cloudbrink says its solution is a software that features the traditional connectivity stack compressed into an application that users are able to download onto any device. This approach removes the need for specialized hardware on either end of a connection, marking an evolution over traditional SD-WAN. The problem is the traditional design of networking, security for organizations has been focused on providing the best performance for users inside the office, said Cloudbrink CEO and co-founder Prakash Mana. Mana listed three other advantages of his company's software over traditional SD-WAN, including preemptive accelerated packet recovery technology that uses artificial intelligence to ensure enterprise-grade performance on any device, partnerships with Verizon, Zayo and other edge network providers to cut latency, and security as a feature instead of an add-on.
