HighQ Chooses CDNetworks to Meet Global Customer Need for Fast Cloud Application Performance and Availability
CDNetworks accelerated web content delivery and secure document collaboration by up to 2,000%
San Jose, CA(10 Jul 2012)
HighQ, a leading global provider of secure document exchange and enterprise collaboration software, has selected CDNetworks to accelerate its dynamic web application content and enable its legal, investment bank, and corporate customers to collaborate securely across different countries and continents. CDNetworks global points of presence (POPs), including in emerging markets, create a localized user experience, achieving up to a 2,000% increase in speed of downloads.
"Global organizations are becoming increasingly dependent on cloud-based solutions and by using CDNetworks we're now able to give them the high performance they expect from anywhere in the world," said Saviz Izadpanah, IT Director, HighQ.
When rolling out its collaboration platform to overseas offices HighQ cited customers' latency issues as a prime motivator in selecting the Dynamic Web Acceleration service from CDNetworks as well as the ability to plug into CDNetworks' network and be up and running quickly.
"We are pleased that CDNetworks is helping HighQ provide customers with fast enterprise collaboration regardless of location including distant and emerging markets like Australia, the Middle East, India, and China," said Jeff Kim, Chief Operating Officer, CDNetworks Americas & EMEA.
Another key factor in HighQ's decision was to preserve the ‘instant-on' nature of its cloud application without the need to invest in expensive data centers that would take considerable time to come on-line and drain resources in terms of man-hours, set-up costs, and technology investment. This enabled HighQ to speed-up download times greatly and to improve its service globally, realizing an approximate 70% savings in infrastructure costs. It also meant that the company could focus on its core expertise in enabling collaboration and rely on CDNetworks for delivery of dynamic site content and applications across multiple data centers and networks.
CDNetworks' solution enabled HighQ to accelerate both the application and its dynamic environment without relying on local caches to store documents. This allowed HighQ to streamline service upgrades and respond to customer requirements as quickly as possible and at the same time maintain the highly dynamic and interactive nature of its application.
Izadpanah added, "Delivering a responsive service has been a cornerstone of HighQ's growth and success. We have experienced 100% year-on-year growth over the past three years, partly because our clients see us as a partner that responds to their concerns without delay. To maintain our hard-fought reputation, we sought to address the issue of global Internet performance as quickly as possible. We didn't want to limit our ability to serve our international users."
