We Believe that Internet is the WAN
Sreelakshmi Sarva, Head, Product Strategy, NetFoundry, speaks to us about the changing networking landscape
Ibrahim Ahmad

Why did NetFoundry break off from Tata Communications to be a separate business?

NetFoundry was spun out of global communications leader Tata in 2019 after building the company as an autonomous start-up, funded, supported and launched originally through Tata’s ‘Shape the Future’ venture programme.

What is changing in the networking space, specially keeping the users requirements in mind?

A lot is changing and we are offering solutions for reinventing networking. The closest analogy is cloud compute IaaS providers, such as AWS and Azure: The IaaS providers built a global platform which enables customers to simply and powerfully orchestrate compute resources, without building and managing the underlying compute, which players like AWS provide in a consumption-based, as-a-service model. We have built NetFoundry (NaaS) a global platform. The result is that a customer can spin up a global, secure, private, cloud-orchestrated network in minutes, and embed or integrate the networking with their applications or services. No other platform enables that!

NetFoundry’s platform is patent pending and our leaders have been granted 20 related US patents. Recently we launched the industry’s first developer platform which enables programmable, zero trust networking. Cloud native applications can now easily embed cloud native networking. This developer platform enables private, secure, high performance networking to be embedded in applications. This platform offers SDKs, APIs, and Zero Trust connectors to enable modern applications to embed Zero Trust security and optimized performance, regardless of where the apps go, including mobile, edge, IoT, and service meshes.
