Somerville eyes bigger, hungrier security-as-a-service customers as new architecture delivers “infinite” bandwidth

David Braue, CSO Online, 24 March 16

Large-scale customer adoption of security-as-a-service (SECaaS) offerings is rapidly pressuring available bandwidth and forcing providers to ramp up their capabilities to stay ahead of demand, according  to one Australian SECaaS provider that recently embraced a more-flexible offering from NEXTDC that will help it speed past its original 10Gbps design.

Although it assumed that its original 10Gbps switching infrastructure would support growth for many years when it was installed less than two years ago, SECaaS provider Somerville/ISNet soon found that aggregated customer usage had blown past expectations – potentially clipping the performance of security services hosted from data centres with finite connectivity to the outside world.

“You'd be amazed how quickly we are sucking up bandwidth at the moment,” managing director Craig Somerville told CSO Australia. “We put in 10Gbps thinking we would have plenty of capacity, but customers are starting to do what they would traditionally do across their LANs, across data centres – and they're sucking up every bit of it.
