NEW YORK, July 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Cloud9 Technologies LLC, a cloud-based trading communication platform for financial firms and institutional traders, announced the general availability of the Cloud9 Gateway service. The Cloud9 Gateway service connects Cloud9 users to their trading counterparties, even if they are not yet using the Cloud9 application, using industry standard private line interfaces.
Gateway can be deployed on site or as a hosted cloud based service, making it easy to add existing counterparties to your Cloud9 application with no disruption to their business. The Cloud9 Gateway will allow current and future customers of Cloud9 to rapidly migrate from traditional telephony-based systems (turrets) onto a cloud-based service, which improves firms' disaster recovery capabilities. It also gives companies the flexibility to operate a hybrid cloud/line based communication system.
"The Cloud9 Gateway service will enable these customers to quickly and easily transition to the cloud without interrupting their business, and overall, will provide them with a more cost effective, resilient and mobile solution alternative to traditional telephony," says Gerald Starr, CEO of Cloud9 Technologies.
"We love using Cloud9, and the Gateway service has enabled us to maintain connections to customers that aren't on Cloud9 yet," said Jesse DiPlacido, Partner at Eclipse International. "It was a very smooth transition onto Cloud9, and the mobility it gives us and the ability to connect to firms globally is good for our business - it's good for any business."
By migrating to the cloud, Eclipse International was able to significantly reduce communication costs. Additionally, the firm will also be able to easily expand to Florida later this year, while maintaining a secure and reliable way of staying compliant with industry regulations.
With its flagship product, C9 Trader, Cloud9 differentiates itself in the field by providing an easy-to- use voice communications platform that offers high-fidelity audio, end-to-end security, and a community of firms that enables users to easily connect with counterparties.
Cloud9 is currently used by more than 2,200 traders, across 26 countries. The company was recently named the Best Sell-Side Trading Communications System by Waters Technology, solidifying that Cloud9 is revolutionizing the way traders communicate across the industry.
