Many companies accelerated their move to the cloud during the pandemic – including cloud-based computing, and, with SASE, cloud-based networking and security as well. But not every company can move all its systems into the cloud.
Businesses keep systems on-prem because of legacy infrastructure, security or compliance requirements, or specific technical needs.
Catchpoint, which helps companies see how all their networks are doing, falls into the latter two categories.
Federal agencies, for example, require a great deal of control over their data, said Nik Koutsoukos, the company’s CMO and strategy and product leader. If the services were hosted in a public cloud, federal agencies wouldn’t do business with Catchpoint.
“There’s always going to be a need for infrastructure that is not public, that is not visible to everyone, for reasons of security and privacy,” he told Data Center Knowledge.
