Gartner Selects CloudGenix as a 2015 "Cool Vendor" in Enterprise Networking

CloudGenix Software-Defined WAN (SD-WAN) Revolutionizes Networking by Replacing Packet-Routed Networks With a Secure Application Fabric That Unifies Hybrid WANs

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 7, 2015) - CloudGenix, a pioneer in software-defined WANs (SD-WANs), today announces it has been named to the "Cool Vendors in Enterprise Networking, 2015"1 report by Andrew Lerner, Neil Rickard, Mark Fabbi and Vivek Bhalla at Gartner, Inc. The report notes that, "for the first time in over a decade, several emerging vendors are offering solutions that dramatically simplify branch networking for hybrid WANs, and do so in a cost-effective manner." In addition, the report recommends that, "to improve interoperability and reduce long-term vendor lock-in, organizations making large data center networking purchases should favor vendors that utilize open architectures built on open standards."

"CloudGenix is honored to be selected as a Gartner Cool Vendor in Enterprise Networking as we revolutionize networking with a secure application fabric that unifies hybrid WAN transports," says Kumar Ramachandran, co-founder and CEO of CloudGenix. "We believe this highly coveted recognition validates the strength of the CloudGenix SD-WAN offering in delivering the 'hybrid WAN' referenced in Gartner's report."

CloudGenix delivers "networks without networking" by enabling secure access to hybrid-cloud and virtualized applications via SD-WANs, rather than a complex maze of networking hardware. The solution is ideally designed for mid-sized and large enterprises that want to reduce networking cost and complexity by virtualizing WANs, securely connecting users with applications and radically reducing remote-office infrastructure.
