The subsidiary of Verizon Communications specialising in the provision of IT services, Verizon Terremark, announced on Thursday (January 17, 2013) that it had "increased availability, security and flexibility for its...enterprise cloud service" and that it was in the process of expanding enterprise cloud computing platforms "in two of [its] data centre facilities located in Dallas and London."
According to Verizon Terremark executives, their company had extended US federal government-grade security controls, previously only available through their Enterprise Cloud Federal Edition offering, to all their commercial customers. As a result, they said, "enterprises can now leverage advanced security technologies including role-based access controls and certificate-based multifactor authentication."
They also announced that in "response to the strong demand for hybrid clouds and to further simplify [cloud] adoption, Verizon Terremark will be extending [its] enterprise cloud service to include instance-based compute and storage...[which] allows customers to pay for their cloud services per virtual machine versus reserving resource capacity."
