The implementation of this new Virtual Data Center (VDC) node will allow Telefónica Tech to reinforce its virtual private cloud offer in the country and also provide a business activity recovery service to companies and help them avoid suffering an incident with loss of data and functionalities.

Telefónica Tech is reinforcing its presence in the USA and extending its ‘Virtual Data Center’ service in the country with the implementation of a new node in Ashburn, Virginia.

This new infrastructure is added to the node that the company already operates in Miami (Florida) and the rest that it has distributed globally in Spain (Madrid, Barcelona, Bilbao and Sevilla), Colombia (Bogota), Peru (Lima), Chile (Santiago), Argentina (Buenos Aires) and Brazil (Sao Paulo and Curitiba).

VDC is Telefónica Tech’s self-managed cloud, based on VMWare technology, which offers comprehensive communications and security services and enables companies to host applications in a secure environment. The VDC service allows hybrid environments to be created at a predictable cost from private clouds located in the customer’s own facilities (on-premise) or from Telefónica’s own data centers.

The deployment of this second node in the USA will allow Telefónica Tech to reinforce its virtual private cloud service in the country with a complete offering that includes additional security tools.

The VDC proposal includes a self-managed service to recover the activity of businesses that have lost data or functionalities as a result of a security incident (Disaster Recovery), as well as backup mechanisms, access protection systems through Multifactor Authentication (MFA) and other security measures (anti-malware, firewall, intrusion prevention, among others).

María Jesús Almazor, CEO of Cybersecurity and Cloud at Telefónica Tech, said: “We have become the largest hub in Southern Europe thanks to our multi-cloud value proposition and we are convinced that Telefónica Tech will play a key role in the development of the cloud and cybersecurity market in the USA.

“We have technological alliances with the main vendors in the sector and our own significant cloud technology capabilities. In addition, we have a Digital Operations Center (DOC) and 11 Security Operations Centers (SOCs) distributed around the world to protect companies and drive Digital Transformation in a secure way.”

Telefónica Tech USA, headquartered in Miami, Florida, has been providing cybersecurity and cloud services in the USA since 2021. The support of Telefónica Tech’s global network of highly qualified professionals allows Telefónica Tech to provide operations 24 hours a day, every day of the year and to take advantage of existing opportunities in the USA, the world’s leading market for cloud and cybersecurity businesses, with a size of US$539 billion and where North America represents 47% of the market.
