DALLAS — AT&T today announced it has added Salesforce to its network-enabled cloud ecosystem. AT&T customers will be able to use their Virtual Private Networks (VPN) to connect to Salesforce services using AT&T NetBond.

With AT&T NetBond, customers will be able to connect to Salesforce services using their AT&T MPLS VPN from any location on their private network. This gives customers the reliability, speed and performance of AT&T’s global network when using the Salesforce platform. AT&T NetBond is designed to match the simplicity and elasticity of cloud computing services like Salesforce.

“The addition of choice in how users connect to Salesforce is game changing for enterprise customers who need high performing and reliable access to industry-leading cloud services,” said Andy Geisse, CEO, AT&T Business Solutions. “This is an important addition to our growing AT&T NetBond ecosystem and will further accelerate enterprise cloud adoption.”

AT&T NetBond uses patented technology and offers the following customer benefits:

  • Simple: Seamlessly works with existing AT&T VPN through APIs creating an automated experience; no additional equipment or access lines required to order or manage.
  • Savings: Network elasticity that automatically flexes with the needs of the cloud service; companies can save as much as 60 percent on networking costs.
  • Performance: Delivers as much as 50 percent lower latency and 3x availability when compared to the public Internet.
  • Protection: Isolates traffic going directly to cloud platforms using the AT&T private global network, providing additional protections from risks such as DDoS attacks.

AT&T expects these capabilities to be available to customers in the second half of 2014.
