By deploying The Shadowserver Foundation’s infrastructure using Network Hub on PlatformDIGITAL, the foundation will be able to scale its business.

Digital Realty (NYSE: DLR) has reached an agreement with The Shadowserver Foundation to support the foundation’s data centre infrastructure needs at Digital Realty’s facility in Oakland, California. 

The Shadowserver Foundation, a non-profit security organisation working to make the internet secure, launched a search for a data centre provider offering the footprint, connectivity and flexibility needed to support its growing collection, processing and analysis of critical internet security data that help businesses safeguard operations. 

“Managing disparate traffic flows and network performance is becoming increasingly complex as businesses adapt to meet their customers’ growing demands,” said Digital Realty Chief Technology Officer Chris Sharp. 

“With Network Hub on PlatformDIGITAL, organisations can break through data gravity barriers to scale digital business. 

“We’re excited to be working with The Shadowserver Foundation in Oakland and we look forward to supporting their continued growth.”

“Our mission as one of the world’s leading resources for internet security is to equip organisations with the research and tools they need to reinforce their protection and remediation efforts,” said Richard Perlotto, Director, The Shadowserver Foundation.

“With Digital Realty, we have the infrastructure we need to be able to more effectively monitor and prevent dark web and illegal activity on the internet.”
