Versa Ranks in the Highest 3 Scores of all Use Cases by Gartner Critical Capabilities for Wan Edge Infrastructure Report

SAN JOSE, Calif., Dec. 17, 2018 – Versa Networks, innovator of the Secure Cloud IP platform, today announced it has received the three highest scores of all defined use cases in Gartner’s research report: Critical Capabilities for WAN Edge Infrastructure (1). Versa was also recently recognized as a Visionary in the debut Gartner Magic Quadrant for WAN Edge Infrastructure(2). That report, profiling 20 vendors, recognized Versa as a Visionary. Download the Gartner Critical Capabilities for WAN Edge Infrastructure report here.

Versa scored in the 3 highest ratings of all vendors for the following three critical capabilities use cases:

  • Midsize Enterprise/Regional WAN: A small, most likely regional, WAN that fits MSEs and similar environments with fewer than 50 sites.
  • Large Global WAN: Requirements include the ability to scale to hundreds of sites, across multiple geographic regions. Remote offices will have different uses, scale and feature requirements.
  • Small Footprint Retail WAN: A small footprint retail WAN environment requires security and virtualized application services, and to simply replicate environments across a very large number of sites.

“Versa’s focus from the beginning on transforming the business of networking by enabling enterprises to transform their edge networks continues to pay dividends,” said Kelly Ahuja, CEO, Versa Networks. “This fresh validation of Versa’s next-generation architecture value stack of software, spanning routing to SD-WAN to security to cloud connectivity, is proving once again that our technology vision and strategic direction are leading the way for service providers and global enterprises to succeed in their digital transformation journeys.”

Versa’s disruptive technology is enabled by Versa Secure Cloud IP architecture – a cloud-native multi-service, multi-tenant software platform that delivers elastic scale, segmentation, programmability and automation. Versa Secure Cloud IP integrates cloud networking, SD-WAN, wireless and mobile connectivity, transport line conditioning and software-defined security services (NGFW/UTM) in a flexible, versatile VNF software stack that displaces the need for multiple legacy branch-office hardware devices.
