SDx Networks partners with Masergy to deliver cloud networking in Australia, New Zealand, AsiaPac

Posted on March 23, 2021

Masergy has a new channel partner in the land down under. SDx Networks, a company established to provide a superior managed service to companies with a global reach, has exclusively partnered with Masergy to officially launch Australia’s next generation of ICT Managed Service Providers.

I’m Ben Gilbert, Founder & CEO of SDx Networks, and I chose to partner with Masergy because they’ve been so successful helping customers converge security and network policies. The need for corporations to realize a global, secure, and agile IT environment continues to grow each year, and these benefits can only be realized if the network and security work in concert.

Masergy has integrated multiple market-leading security capabilities with its Managed SD-WAN Secure service to deliver a converged, high-performance SASE solution. With a wide portfolio of best-of-breed technologies from leaders in their respective markets, the company is expanding its global infrastructure to meet more of the needs of today’s digital enterprise. Additionally, Masergy has integrated its AIOps feature set into its SD-WAN solutions to enhance its SASE capabilities. Masergy AIOps acts as a virtual network engineer, automating the evaluation of network and security performance and making recommendations for optimization.

Leveraging Masergy’s unique offerings, SDx is positioned to bring cloud networking to companies of every size and across every industry in the Australia, New Zealand, AsiaPac markets, and Masergy couldn’t be happier about it. “We’re excited at the opportunity to partner with a fantastic business like SDx Networks and expand Masergy’s reach into the Australian market,” said Emily Nerland, Managing Director of EMEA for Masergy. “SASE solutions are gaining a lot of interest in the markets SDx serves, and security has always been intrinsic to our network.”

At SDx, we believe that in order to provide a cloud-based managed service, three things must be at the center of the network: automation, orchestration, and programmability. Masergy’s software-defined network and cloud platform does just that.

  • Automation: AIOps uses AI-based analytics to automatically understand what’s happening inside the IT environment, bringing insights to IT leaders that reduce the problems of network management and save hours in manual evaluation processes.
  • Orchestration: Masergy’s SD-WAN Orchestrator offers all the controls IT managers need to make real-time changes to their network and bandwidth — and in today’s world, the speed of change is a primary competitive advantage.
  • Programmability: The network services and security features are infinitely customizable and yet easy to adjust. Masergy’s SD-WAN and SASE solutions allow companies to configure all firewalls and application control policies along with web and DNS filtering profiles to block cybersecurity threats. Plus, clients can enforce consistent security policies across all SD-WAN devices. Better still, application settings and bandwidth thresholds also make it easier for companies to ensure their employees get the highest quality of service when using critical business apps.

When remote work and digital interactions are changing the way companies operate, putting more demand on the network and security, new software-defined services are the path for the future. SDx and Masergy are bringing an unprecedented opportunity in the market for companies to transform their business models to be fully digital and cloud native. We stand ready to serve your digital transformation initiatives.
