Empowering secure and reliable Internet with SCION and InterCloud

Mariia Golikova.Oct 31, 2023

In today's ever-evolving digital landscape, the demand for a secure, reliable, and high-performance internet has never been more critical. Fortunately, SCION, a groundbreaking technology, is revolutionizing the online world. Recently, on October 18th, the SCION Day event took place in Zurich and Luc Imbert, Chief Product Officer (CPO) at InterCloud, took the stage to shed light on how InterCloud is leading the charge in providing secure connectivity solutions for businesses through SCION.

What is SCION?

SCION represents a revolutionary approach to internet communication, addressing the shortcomings of the traditional internet. Anapaya Systems, the driving force behind SCION technology, has recently secured a significant $2 million investment from Mysten Labs, a US-based Web3 infrastructure technology company. Here's where SCION steps in as the ideal choice for Web3 communication infrastructure. Unlike the current internet, where data routing is unpredictable and often susceptible to security vulnerabilities and performance issues, SCION empowers data senders with complete control over their data's path. This guarantees security, reliability, and optimal performance.

InterCloud: Pioneering SCION-enabled global private backbone

InterCloud's strategic partnership with Anapaya Systems represents a pivotal step in harnessing the immense potential of SCION technology. This collaboration has given rise to fast, efficient, and highly available connectivity solutions designed specifically for accessing cloud environments. The primary goal? Simplifying the transition to SCION-based connectivity, thus ensuring secure access for businesses of all sizes. InterCloud, as the world's first SCION-enabled global private backbone, plays a pivotal role in realizing SCION technology's potential. Our end-to-end connectivity services are tailored to meet the most critical requirements of businesses, providing a secure and reliable alternative to traditional internet connectivity. Luc Imbert, InterCloud's CPO, emphasized at SCION Day 2023 how "SCION-to-Cloud" has become a reality, promoting secure connectivity for businesses.

Key Takeaways from Luc Imbert's speech:
