The World is Powered by Applications

Increasing dependence on applications is straining legacy technology infrastructures, application architectures, and operating models.

Applications improve the way we live, the way we work, and help us solve some of society's biggest challenges.

This advancing digital innovation relies on connecting diverse and distributed applications to equally diverse and distributed audiences, at internet scale.

Eliminate Barriers with NS1

NS1 solutions help companies eliminate barriers to innovation

We connect the world's applications and audiences with our Application Traffic Automation and Intelligence Portfolio. Our cloud-native network services, edge-to-cloud networking, and application traffic optimization technologies enable incredible user experiences, drive IT efficiency and modernization, and drive enterprise and application reliability and security.

Application Audiences, Infrastructure, and Operating Models are Evolving

Organizations that continue to rely on outdated foundational network technologies run up against significant barriers to innovation, such as inability to scale and legacy technology that just can't deliver the speed and performance today's users demand.

Infrastructure boundaries

Infrastructure boundaries slow the pace of innovation by limiting organizations' ability to adopt new platforms like laaS, new application architectures like microservices, and leverage the agility of new operating models like DevOps, NetOps and SecOps.

Data boundaries

The inability to gather, visualize and operate on the disparate data streams generated in modern networks limits administrators in their ability to improve performance, reliability, and security.

Boundaries between audiences and applications

The vast distribution of users and applications coupled with the complexity of application delivery significantly stresses legacy application delivery environments resulting in sub-optimal application experiences, business downtime, loss of revenue, loss of productivity, and brand erosion.
