As Asian Market Growth Continues, West 7 Center Ready to Enable International Connectivity

Los Angeles – March 29, 2018 – Rising Realty Partners (Rising), a full-service investment platform specializing in creating world-class commercial and industrial properties, announces that its West 7 Center is strategically positioned to support carriers, OTTs and enterprises looking to expand into growing Asian markets. With over 16 global and domestic carriers on site and 172,000 square feet of space available, the Tier III facility offers prospective clients an attractive and reliable gateway to Asia.

Experts predict that, by 2019, the Asia-Pacific region will generate the most web-traffic in the world – double the volume generated in North America. As a result, data centers like West 7 Center will serve a critical role as reliable colocation partners, providing mission-critical infrastructure and support for the flow of data from the US across the Pacific Ocean.

“As Los Angeles’ largest purpose-built data center, West 7 Center is perfectly situated as an Asian gateway,” says Tyson Strutzenberg, Chief Operating Officer of Rising Realty Partners. “With direct access to One Wilshire, a primary transit center for internet traffic from the US to Asia, we offer the redundancy our customers need for their data and mission-critical applications. Backed by two central plants with N+1 redundancy and 70,000 gallons of fuel, West 7 Center can provide ongoing uptime in case of emergency or power outages.”

“When we were looking to add to our presence in Los Angeles, we specifically chose West 7 Center because of their round-the-clock security and engineering services,” says Arman Khalili, CEO of Evocative, which recently signed a 42,000 square foot lease in the facility. “Our clients include small start-ups and Fortune 500 companies – each in need of a high level of flexibility, service and low latency connectivity. This is one of the best data centers from an infrastructure perspective and it rivals some of the major carrier hotels and disaster recovery sites on a global scale. We are confident that our customers will benefit from West 7 Center’s capabilities as a data storage and colocation facility with easy access to subsea cables that travel to Asia.”

Ensure Application Security with Zend Server and RIPS

Zend Server is the ultimate and most secure software platform for deploying, monitoring, debugging, maintaining, and optimizing enterprise PHP applications. It also helps to keep the technology stack up-to-date and to avoid security risks that stem from outdated components.
However, most of the daily web attacks try to exploit security bugs in the applications’ source code. Popular vulnerability types such as SQL injection and cross-site scripting can enable attackers to steal sensitive user data from the server.

Integrate Security Checks with RIPS CLI

Getting started Installation The installation of rips-cli is described in detail in our documentation. You can download the PHAR build of our CLI tool into your bin directory and make it executable with the following commands:
1 2 sudo wget https://github.com/rips/rips-cli/releases/download/1.1.1/rips-cli.phar -O /usr/bin/rips-cli sudo chmod 755 /usr/bin/rips-cli The only requirements to run rips-cli are the PHP command line interface and the Zip extension to start scans.
