SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 24, 2018 — Versa Networks, a leading innovator of next-generation software-based networking and security solutions, today announced that Quadrant Knowledge Solutions has recognized Versa Networks as the 2018 SD-WAN Company of the Year in its recent study titled “Market Outlook: Software-Defined Wide-Area Network (SD-WAN), 2018-2023.” The report is an in-depth analysis of global SD-WAN vendors based on strategy, business, and growth (SBG) performance and overall industry impact.

Driven by its highly capable Versa Cloud IP Platform, technology innovation, simplification and overall ability to improve the end-to-end operational and user experience across the WAN, Versa Networks received the highest ratings for SBG performance ahead of other SD-WAN vendors, including Cisco (Viptela), Citrix, CloudGenix, Fatpipe, Mushroom Networks, Nuage Networks, Silver Peak, Talari Networks, VeloCloud, and others.

“Quadrant’s team believes that, with the advanced SD-WAN technology coupled with the right competitive and growth strategy, Versa Networks has the potential to cause major disruption in the marketplace,” stated the study. “The company with its advanced SD-WAN, SD-Security and SD-Branch solution is well positioned to help enterprise companies and service providers in achieving significant business advantages by improving network agility and performance, scalability, enhanced security, and reduced overall costs.”

Versa Networks’ key competitive differentiation is the completeness of its Cloud IP Platform to deliver SD-WAN with integrated security to software-define the branch.  Its unique value proposition provides a robust and automated solution that offers simplified SD-WAN, application experience routing and integrated next-generation security. All of this is within a single unified software platform offering secure multi-cloud and enterprise branch dynamic connectivity.
