dinCloud Launches More Managed Cloud Services for Financial Vertical

Bob Din

Managed cloud service providers (CSPs) continue to roll out new offerings designed specifically for security- and compliance-intensive vertical markets. A key example: dinCloud has launched cloud services specifically designed for the lending industry -- including mortgage brokers, bankers, direct lenders and credit unions.

The offerings include hosted workspaces, an application publishing platform, private virtual servers, cloud backup and associated security services, the company said. True believers include Bank of England, which leverages dinCloud to track hardware assets between geographically dispersed branches. The bank also runs dinCloud's backup services.

In addition to its vertical market focus, dinCloud is quite active in the IT channel. VARs and MSPs offer dinCloud hosted virtual desktops, virtual servers and cloud storage across commercial and public sector organizations. dinCloud CEO Bob Din previously owned a national VAR and a Microsoft LAR. Likewise, VP of sales David Graffia and CMO Ali Din all have VAR-centric experience.
