Apcela Funding Supports Expansion of Application Accelerator Platform

Subscribe to our newsletter

Apcela, provider of a platform that accelerates applications and data between legacy enterprise data centres and the cloud, has closed additional funding from existing investor Claritas Capital and named former SunGard executive Jack Dziak as president and chief operating officer.

The company’s low-latency application delivery platform, AppHUB, helps users manage application performance in hybrid IT environments and was originally built for sophisticated high-frequency trading firms. The solution bridges legacy premises-based IT and cloud environments to manage application performance and security. Its SD-WAN overlay enhances, and sometimes replaces, existing MPLS or hybrid WAN networks, while its distributed security platform improves performance by moving an existing security environment and policies closer to users and cloud applications, ensuring business critical applications are available to any user, on any device, anywhere.

Mark Casey, CEO of Apcela (formerly CFN Services), says: “As hybrid IT becomes the norm, companies increasingly need help delivering application performance and security across an evolving and more agile architecture. This investment enables us to expand our solution set around these challenges and transform the enterprise WAN from a centralised and siloed IT architecture into a next-generation, distributed-edge infrastructure delivering speed, performance, and security for critical applications.”

Dziak, who joins Apcela from the post of executive vice president, global products, at SunGard Availability Services, adds: “I’ve been an Apcela customer multiple times and have directly benefited from the measurable, game-changing capabilities the company brings to its clients. Application acceleration is not an abstract term with Apcela, the company’s track record is real – bringing strong technical, operational, and financial benefits to clients in a way its competitors cannot.”
