Cloud Gateway was founded in 2017 by Justin Day and Neil Briscoe. The founding directors have worked within the IT industry, specifically in the field of networking, for 40+ years collectively. Much of this work was conducted within secure environments delivering critical infrastructure services to central government departments.
The company was formed with the aim to address the ever increasing gaps forming between an organisation and the industry trend towards ‘everything cloud’ and on-demand service consumption. With networking becoming a dark art, it can take companies longer than necessary to implement the right solution for their requirements – with networking often holding up innovation.
Shiny tech distracts businesses from their challenges and forces businesses in to single cloud vendor lock-in. Cloud Gateway’s underpinning ethos is to be truly agnostic, to help organisations to find the right tool for the right job, quicker and easier, and offer the flexibility of hybrid cloud and multicloud environments and to avoid these all too common expensive vendor lock-in contracts.
All organisations whether in the public or private sector need to be more agile, competitive, cost conscious yet relevant, they need to be able to flex as the globalisation of services continues at pace. Cloud Gateway aims to bring agile network capabilities to address challenges faced today, whilst also preparing customers for future innovations.
Since 2017, the Cloud Gateway company, team and cloud-native PaaS solution have been built on the core values of security, speed and agility, and reduction in complexity for our customers. Gartner released a new report in 2019 which brought many of these values under the new term; SASE (secure access service edge). Pronounced ‘sassy’.
The team at Cloud Gateway are known for their big personalities and passion for, plus expertise in, cloud networking. It’s what drives the team, ethos and strong company culture. Customers rely on the exceptional customer support they receive, fast response times and can-do attitude from the service management team and wider business.
