“By 2024, to enhance agility and support for cloud applications, 60% of enterprises will have implemented SD-WAN, compared with about 30% in 2020,” Gartner also states.

Versa has invested significantly in R&D, sales, and marketing over the last 18 months demonstrating its strength in the ability to execute and completeness of vision. The company has also made major investments in SASE (Secure Access Service Edge) which is built on the industry leading VOS™ (Versa Operating System) for both cloud and on-premises implementations.

“Versa Secure SD-WAN has delivered cost optimization, simplicity, agility, and reliability with a single coherent view of the network across thousands of our branches,” said Avinash Raghavendra, EVP and Head of IT of Axis Bank. “It is commendable that Versa continues to be independently recognized as a leader in on-premises and cloud implementations of networking and network security for Secure SD-WAN and SASE.”

According to Gartner, “The market for branch office WAN edge functionality continues to rapidly shift from dedicated routing, security and WAN optimization appliances to feature-rich SD-WAN. SD-WAN is replacing traditional branch routers with application aware path selection among multiple links, centralized orchestration and native security, as well as application performance optimization functions.”

“We believe Versa Network’s placement in the Gartner Leaders quadrant validates our strategy and strong execution,” said Kelly Ahuja, CEO with Versa Networks. “Eight years ago, our founders, Apurva and Kumar Mehta, made a bet to architect the solution in such a unique way and we have delivered a truly superior secure networking platform that is aligned with where the market is headed. Our purpose-built Secure SD-WAN and SASE solutions power enterprise networks globally for connecting users to applications anywhere, anytime. Our platform is differentiated with tightly integrated security, superior application and network performance, and advanced software-defined and network functionalities for cloud and on-premises deployments.”

Versa is the leader in Secure SD-WAN and SASE, uniquely combining full-featured SD-WAN, comprehensive integrated security, scalable advanced routing, genuine multi-tenancy, and sophisticated analytics on-premises and in the cloud to meet WAN Edge requirements for small to very large enterprises, as well as Service Providers.
