“Receiving the MVP Award for networking from Computer Technology Review validates the value we provide customers by simplifying the process of building hybrid WANs”
According to CTR, Viptela SEN enables enterprises to cut their networking budget by at least 50 percent and supports anywhere-to-anywhere secure communications over any transport technology (MPLS, Broadband, LTE, etc.) while providing full application based control.
“Receiving the MVP Award for networking from Computer Technology Review validates the value we provide customers by simplifying the process of building hybrid WANs,” said Amir Khan, CEO of Viptela. “Our software defined technology uses an IPsec-based overlay network mesh that transforms costly and inflexible hub-and-spoke WAN infrastructures to support entirely new traffic patterns created by cloud and mobile application usage.”
Since its introduction less than one year ago, Viptela has quickly gained traction in the enterprise market with several Fortune 500 companies adopting Viptela SEN for centrally managing and securing multiple networks that are critical to their business. In 2014, healthcare, retail and financial organizations deployed Viptela to address the cost, complexity and flexibility shortcomings of legacy WAN infrastructures. The Viptela SEN platform makes it possible to manage any mix of transport technologies as if they were a single system. This strong enterprise uptake has been matched by equally robust traction with Global Tier-1 Carriers that plan to use Viptela SEN to offer managed SD-WAN services.
Viptela is transforming enterprise networking. The company uses Software-Defined Networking (SDN) technology to make Wide Area Networks (WAN) easier to manage, adaptable, secure and significantly cheaper to operate. Viptela was founded in 2012 by a team of executives from Cisco, Juniper Networks, Alcatel-Lucent and VMware who have developed market defining products and architected some of the world’s largest networks. Viptela is backed by Sequoia Capital and headquartered in San Jose, CA. For more information, visit: www.viptela.com or follow us on Twitter @Viptela.
