Welcome to the January edition of our newsletter, Webair Connect. In this issue, we’ll discuss recent company news and explore the current challenges and trends in the industry. This quarter was a particularly exciting time for Webair, as we were listed in Gartner’s “Market Guide for Cloud Service Providers to Healthcare Delivery Organizations” as a Representative Vendor in the Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) / Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) category.

In addition to this accomplishment, Webair has announced a strategic and unprecedented partnership with Oxford Solutions to provide enhanced cybersecurity to all customers and deploy a 24/7 SOC in our flagship NY1 facility on Long Island. We also made some great connections attending PTC’17 in Honolulu, where our Chief Technology Officer, Sagi Brody, shared his thoughts on cloud and networking alongside executives from Level 3 Communications, GTT Communications, EdgeConneX®, and Megaport.

As we begin the new year, we look forward to continuing to serve our customers with industry-leading innovation in Cloud, Colocation and fully managed solutions, performing as a true technology partner to businesses around the world. We had a lot to be proud of in 2016, but as we continue to establish strategic partnerships and expand our brand awareness throughout the industry, 2017 is looking even brighter.
Sincerely,
Michael Orza, CEO
