Security Enhancements

Zayo has taken security protection for customers to the next level, requiring a two-factor authentication process for Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) route management. This makes Zayo one of the first communications infrastructure providers to implement 2FA for BGP updates. The company has also deployed Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI) filtering, designed to secure the internet's routing infrastructure. With these measures, Zayo aims to provide improved security for the broader internet community and prevent inadvertent or malicious route hijacks from bad actors.

Providing an On-Demand Network

For large bandwidth customers who need data center connectivity quickly and easily, Zayo is launching "Waves on Demand," an industry-first that enables same-day turn-up on the most in-demand routes, with significantly shortened delivery times. This service means that customers can quickly provision "Wavelength on Demand" between key data center locations across Zayo's market-leading network footprint. In 2023, Zayo launched 8 new Waves on Demand routes, with 5 additional routes planned for the future.
