At Versa Networks, we have focused on developing full-featured SD-WAN, comprehensive integrated security, scalable advanced routing, genuine multi-tenancy, and sophisticated analytics in a single-pass software architecture for Secure SD-WAN and SASE deployments on-premises and in the cloud. It is exciting to see our efforts recognized by our customers and also by leading analysts.
This year, Gartner announced the Magic Quadrant WAN Edge Infrastructure report which analyzes the various vendors in the WAN edge market and identifies Versa as a Leader.
Customers are choosing WAN edge infrastructure which, as defined by Gartner, incorporates a broader class of traditional network functions, that includes routing, next generation firewalls, SD-WAN, application optimization, WAN path control, and WAN optimization. According to Gartner, ”by 2024, to enhance agility and support for cloud applications, 60% of enterprises will have implemented SD-WAN, compared with about 30% in 2020”.
In addition, Gartner estimates that “by 2024, more than 60% of software-defined, wide-area network (SD-WAN) customers will have implemented a secure access service edge (SASE) architecture, compared with about 35% in 2020.”
Versa has been continuously executing on our vision to bring Secure SD-WAN and SASE on-premises and in the cloud to customers globally and I am excited to share that Versa has been named as a Leader in the Magic Quadrant for WAN Edge, and placed high in Ability to Execute and high in Completeness of Vision.
