Verizon's Terremark offers new cloud capabilities, clarifies marketing message

Terremark, which is now a wholly-owned services subsidiary of Verizon (NYSE: VZ), is expanding its suite of cloud, security and IT services to target enterprise customers in not only North America, but also growing regions including Latin America, Europe and Asia-Pacific. 

Acting as Verizon's arm to deliver enterprise based IT services to businesses and government agencies, Terremark will provide customers with a number of infrastructure and managed IT and security products.

The cloud services offerings will be complemented by Verizon's managed security, risk and compliance, and identity and access management services, as well as application management services and IT and security professional services.

Both Verizon and Terremark instantly expanded their respective data center and cloud service presence when Verizon completed its acquisition of Terremark.

In addition to the growing portfolio of services and data center space, Terremark brings its long list of IT partners, including Accenture, Cisco, EMC, HP, NetApp, SAP, Tata Consultancy Services and VMware.
