“POP” Goes the Vendor that Doesn’t Separate Scrubbing Centers from Always-On Platforms

It seems hardly a week can pass without some cloud-based security service provider announcing the latest expansion of their cloud infrastructure. The cadence has turned into something of an arms race mentality on the part of these providers, perhaps in response to a sense that’s what the market wants to see in a service provider. After all, X+1 number of Points of Presence (POPs) is better than X, right?

Well, the real answer is that most confounding of answers: it depends. In this case, the dependency is a question of what specific problem you’re trying to solve.
