Team Cymru Enters Latin America with EdgeUno to Accelerate Delivery of Threat Intelligence

New York, Jan. 29, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Team Cymru, an Internet security firm and leading provider of Internet threat intelligence, today announced that it has partnered with EdgeUno to implement the first international PoP for its new, global network backbone. The implementation will result in more efficient visibility into malicious internet activity within or traversing through Latin America.

The first international PoP of Team Cymru’s new, global network backbone will be in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and the company will continue to expand globally throughout 2020. Unlike many solution providers in the threat intelligence space, Team Cymru operates as an ISP, which enables more holistic visibility than other vendors can achieve relying on edge point devices to gather data.

“The goal is to gain efficiencies in our global monitoring of malicious internet activity and cyber threats,” commented Rabbi Rob Thomas, Founder and CEO of Team Cymru. “Our customers can expect us to be coming to a peering point near them, and this means they will the get threat intelligence they need faster.”

The move also means that EdgeUno’s customers who depend on Team Cymru community services offerings, such as the Nimbus near-real-time threat monitoring or the ISP to ASN mapping services, will see improved speeds.

“Internet Security is an essential part of our business in Latin America” said Mehmet Akcin, Founder and CEO of EdgeUno. “We are big believers in the services and unparalleled insight Team Cymru has been providing to its global customers over the years. We are very certain with expansion into Brazil the insight users get will be even more comprehensive. We are very excited to be working with Team Cymru and look forward to be their one-stop Latin America help across the Americas.”

Mehmet Akcin is available for media interviews regarding EdgeUno’s aim to expand the edge computing industry in Latin America and around the world. To schedule an interview, contact him at mehmet@edgeuno.com.
