Headquartered in Ottawa, Canada, with operations in the USA, CloudLink (formerly known as AFORE Solutions) focuses on delivering innovative technology to Enterprises and Service Providers that will give them complete control over security of data in virtualized/cloud environments and increased visibility and performance management of their cloud resources and services.

Cloud services can transform enterprise IT departments by reducing costs and complexity. Customers can now only pay for the services they use – when they want to use them. Enterprises want the ability to scale up their services as required. They want to free up their resources to focus on what they do best.

However, security, performance and availability are chief concerns for many CIOs looking to move to a cloud networking model. CloudLink works with enterprises and IT service providers to provide cloud security and management solutions that address these three fundamental concerns of enterprise CIOs.

Our award-winning CloudLink software provides a highly differentiated market offering that is designed to enable a wide adoption of cloud computing services by enterprises interested in moving sensitive and regulated workloads to the cloud.



We are very pleased to announce that CloudLink has been acquired by EMC Corporation.  EMC is the leader in delivering solutions that enable the world to store, manage and leverage data.  The EMC Federation Enterprise Hybrid Cloud enables customers to deploy IT as a Service quickly and easily.  CloudLink is an award-winning provider of software-based data security solutions for hybrid clouds.  As part of EMC, CloudLink will empower customers to embrace the hybrid cloud while addressing concerns around data security and sovereignty, and maintaining regulatory compliance.

Since CloudLink turned its focus to cloud security more than four years ago, we have been heartened to witness the exponential growth of private, public and hybrid cloud and honored to help our customers embrace this new paradigm.  Our induction into the EMC Select partner program two years ago was both a privilege and an excellent opportunity for us to develop solutions that truly address customer needs.  We are eager to contribute to the customer value EMC delivers through its industry-leading innovation, service and support.

Above all, we’d like to extend our thanks to our customers, partners and employees, as well as everyone who has helped us evolve and innovate.  We are very excited to join the EMC family and look forward to continuing our joint commitment to making hybrid cloud a success. If you have any immediate questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at cloudlinkquestions@emc.com.
