Silver Peak has been named as a Leader in Gartner’s 2015 Magic Quadrant for WAN Optimization.

Making the announcement, Gartner said: “As WAN optimization appliances increasingly include WAN path control and local link load balancing capabilities, these products are morphing into SD-WAN solutions.”

Silver Peak is a global provider of software-defined WANs (SD-WAN) technology solutions.

 “WAN requirements are evolving rapidly as enterprises become more frustrated with the high cost and complexity of MPLS networking, and until now, an inability to easily leverage lower-cost Internet in a secure, controlled and optimized manner,” said David Hughes, CEO of Silver Peak. 

“We believe Silver Peak is best-positioned to help customers meet these new WAN requirements. With Dynamic Path Control, Silver Peak offers customers the most comprehensive solution today for building an SD-WAN fabric that helps enterprises migrate to an enterprise-grade WAN using hybrid or all-Internet WAN connectivity across a distributed environment.”

Two critical requirements of an SD-WAN are that it be a virtual network overlay, and that it leverages WAN path control to non-disruptively connect users with any applications over any network. Silver Peak’s portfolio of WAN solutions with its Dynamic Path Control enables customers to migrate to hybrid and potentially, all-Internet WANs in a secure and optimized manner. This helps customers leverage their existing WAN investments while reducing the ever-increasing WAN costs and complexity.  This enables enterprises to respond faster to the changing needs of the business.
