Untangle Expands Command Center to Support European Customers

Untangle Command Center now available, hosted entirely on European cloud infrastructure

SAN JOSE, Calif. – March 15, 2022 Untangle® Inc., a leader in comprehensive network security for small-to-medium businesses (SMBs) and distributed enterprises, today announced the expansion of its award-winning cloud-based management tool, Untangle Command Center, to better serve the needs of its growing European customer base. A key component of the Untangle Network Security Framework, along with Untangle’s NG Firewall and Micro Edge, Command Center is now available to European customers hosted entirely on EU cloud infrastructure. Partnering with German-based cloud provider IONOS, the expansion makes it easier for Untangle channel partners to deliver Untangle’s Network Security Framework to local customers.

According to the Untangle SMB IT Security Report, digital transformation has spurred 58% of SMBs to deploy more than 10% of their IT infrastructure in the cloud – a 32% increase from 2020. To meet the increasing demand for cloud security, Untangle’s partnership with IONOS will increase connection speed to Command Center for European customers, further enabling European channel partners to proactively manage IT operations.

The launch of the European Command Center demonstrates Untangle’s focus on providing more resources to European IT teams and continuing to grow the Untangle partner base globally. Untangle solutions already provide significant support for cloud deployments across the US and Europe, offering multi-currency payment options. The launch comes after the most recent update to Command Center, which made it possible to connect geographically dispersed offices together in seconds using a mesh topology with auto-provisioning of VPN tunnels.

“Untangle’s relationship with IONOS has enabled us to quickly build a separate instance of our Command Center entirely hosted in Europe,” said Scott Devens, CEO of Untangle. “Our expansion into Europe makes it easier for our European channel partners to deliver Untangle’s Network Security Framework to their locally based customers. Our channel partners now have the ability to offer their customers a complete suite of networking and security products running on a highly secure and scalable European infrastructure.”

Untangle’s European Command Center will enable us to further expand the Untangle offering across the region with our with our MSP’s, Resellers and their end-users, feeling confident that their data is contained locally and GDPR compliant”.
