Press Release

Houston, TX

NetIQ today announced that ITENOS, a leading German IT solution provider specializing in Cloud, Colocation and Network Connectivity for small and mid-size enterprises (SMEs) has built and standardized its Cloud Infrastructure Services (IaaS) on NetIQ technology. As a result, ITENOS is delivering highly-tailored and secure cloud offerings that meet strict German security and data protection regulations which enables SMEs to meet the changing needs of their customers in an agile manner without sacrificing security.

"The German SME market is exploding, driven by the business opportunities afforded by mobility - and in particular, mobile e-commerce - software development and other similar, targeted business services, said Ralf Sperner, director, Business Unit IT at ITENOS. "SMEs want to focus on their customers, service differentiation and competitive advantage. They come to ITENOS to help them create virtual IT structures that meet their processes and business requirements so they can act and react at the speed of today's business demands. Moreover, because our cloud operations are all located in Germany, no SME has to take on unnecessary risk or make any concessions to meet the high security standards and data protection regulations governing all German organizations."

Because of NetIQ technology, ITENOS is able to deliver Cloud Infrastructure Services via web interface that can be consumed on a pay-per use with a minimal contract. Additionally, ITENOS is able to offer services around its Cloud Infrastructure Services, such as hybrid or private cloud solutions to meet the demands of growing businesses.

"When looking for a partner, we prioritized providers that understand how enterprises need and use dynamic IT service delivery across public, private and hybrid cloud infrastructure. NetIQ proved to have the know-how and experience in working with service providers to create differentiated solutions that can seamlessly integrate with customers' existing on-premise infrastructure as well as SaaS or PaaS services to scale IT capacity easily and cost-efficiently," continued Sperner.

"NetIQ carrier-grade cloud and security solutions are proving to transform how service providers bring services to market," said Christoph Stoica, director, NetIQ Central Region. "We are very pleased that we have established a strong partnership with ITENOS to create a solution that not only meets the needs of an emerging market sector, but also further differentiates its brand within a competitive market with unique security requirements."
