Console Connect’s primary product was the Console Connect Platform. It is a web application that was integrated with Microsoft Azure. The service was intended to reduce the cost of server-to-server communication, by bypassing the internet, using direct links that Console Platform had already negotiated for clients.[2]

Sales for Console Platform largely were first party, and were promoted directly on Amazon Direct Connect Platform, the Google Cloud Platform and Azure Marketplace galleries - which were the primary cloud platforms that Console Platform provides connection to.[3]

Console Connect Inc. had won industry awards, including TechTarget’s 2016 Network Innovation Award for the Console Platform.[4]
