Technology changes rapidly as new products, features, and benefits constantly flood the industry; all of which promise a brighter, better, and easier tomorrow. With so many changes and promises, one thing I’ve consistently run into in the networking industry is that many of these features and capabilities often go unused, or even more frequently are used incorrectly, so that their benefits aren’t seen. When product features and capabilities go unused, disappointing performance may occur and even lead to the misconception that the product was falsely advertised and that processes were somehow broken. I’ve been in the networking industry for about…

The Wave of Reality

February 14, 2020

After a successful exit with one of the top SD-WAN companies some have asked why I joined Versa Networks. History has shown us that industry disruptions often occur in waves.  The first SD-WAN wave of infancy was made up of a number of pure-play startups (including Versa) who entered and helped form the market. The second wave could be referred to as the wave of insanity. The market exploded to nearly 80 vendors many of which were jumping in to “pivot” some or all of their business to SD-WAN. There were quite a few others who simply put an SD-WAN…

Digital Transformation with Versa’s SD-Branch

CEO, Versa Networks
May 10, 2017

Enterprise CIOs are preparing for a digital transformation by developing strategies that “software define” different aspects of their architecture, processes and organization. In general, this strategy includes creating and adopting new, nimbler operational processes that are automated and provide better total cost of ownership in all aspects of the business. This transformation began in enterprise application and data center domains a couple of years back. Many enterprises adopted new Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) models and began moving business-critical applications to public cloud infrastructures. Consequently, today’s enterprise data center and IT application environments are simpler. The popularity of Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure…

As with any startup, the courage and sacrifices necessary to make an endeavor successful are difficult to justify, because the possibility of success is equally balanced with a likelihood of disappointment– and therein lies the dilemma. As such, it isn’t often that one can see their vision come to fruition. And yet, four years after starting Versa, it has become one of the most formidable companies in the Software Defined WAN and SD-Security landscape. In 2012, Apurva and I began recognizing the macro-trend developing in which the future of networking would be software-based. Expensive and proprietary hardware was going to…
