Designed to help customers accelerate their multi-cloud journey, the Prosimo Next Partner Program enables strategic, innovative and cloud-forward partners to help enterprises move seamlessly from traditional approaches using legacy networking to modern approaches with the Prosimo AXI platform. The company’s innovative approach to solving enterprise challenges around multi-cloud networking has been recognized by leading industry analysts and cloud architects at Fortune 500 companies, and has resulted in strategic relationships with AWS, Azure and Google Cloud Platform. The Proximo AXI platform offers Network transit and App Transit to include observability and ML-driven recommendations that balance performance, security and cost control. This enables us to deliver a highly autonomous cloud networking solution that simplifies operations, leads to better user experiences, and accelerates time-to-market, all of which will lead to better business outcomes.
According to Gartner®, “by 2023, 40% of all enterprise workloads will be deployed in cloud infrastructure and platform services, up from 20% in 2020” and “for public cloud deployments, we estimate the 2020 market size was in the $100 million range in vendor revenue, and we expect CAGR to be in the 20% to 40% range through 2025.” Additionally, “by 2025, 35% of companies that use multiple cloud providers will use a single network stack, an increase of over 10 times from May 2021.” Furthermore, in our Semi-Annual State of Multi-Cloud Infrastructure Report and Application eXperience Infrastructure Study [AXIS], we learned that 62% of IT decision makers state that finding a consistent network approach across CSPs is the top cloud networking challenge.
The quickly expanding enterprise cloud footprint has forced organizations to rethink networking and connectivity as they expand into complex multi-cloud environments. This is driven by enterprise desires to speed the pace of innovation and accelerate revenue growth by improving customer experiences, employee productivity and operational efficiency,” said Timo Prietto. “What drew me to Prosimo was the ability to help customers at any entry point of the cloud journey and then scale up and out, which is possible only because of Prosimo’s unique ability to deliver autonomous multi-cloud networking. There is a huge opportunity in front of us and the launch of Prosimo Next Partner Program reflects our commitment to long-term partner growth, innovation and enablement.Timo Prietto, Head of Strategic Partners & Channels at Prosimo

Enterprises are struggling to achieve connectivity to the cloud using legacy networking approaches and often get confused with networking capabilities from CSPs. As they scale, complexity becomes a major impediment from truly realizing the full potential of the enterprise cloud.
Prosimo enables Teneo to provide customers with a single integrated management and control plane to unlock a transit for connecting to and across cloud. Going beyond what other MCN players are doing, its integrated stack includes native app-networking with observability and ML-driven recommendations. This balances routing, security and cost across the network transit to deliver simplified multi-cloud and the best application experience autonomously.Andy de Clerck, CTO, Teneo
At HighPoint we’re focused on helping customers increase operational efficiency, improve security and reduce operational costs. Enterprises need a holistic approach to overcome challenges with complexity in their growing cloud environment. Until Prosimo delivered its AXI platform, there wasn’t a solution that could help us achieve this for our cloud-forward customers. Prosimo is really the first and only technology provider to rethink multi-cloud networking with a game-changing integrated infrastructure stack that empowers enterprises to simplify cloud operations and unlock the full benefits that enables them to accelerate their cloud journey.Richard Grayson, Director of Secure Enterprise Network Practice, HighPoint
