DALLAS — March 8, 2021 — Masergy, the software-defined network and cloud platform for the digital enterprise, today announced it has been named a Visionary in Gartner, Inc.’s March 2021 Magic Quadrant for Network Services, Global1, report. This is the fifth consecutive year Masergy is positioned in the Visionaries quadrant. The report evaluates vendors based on completeness of vision and ability to execute.

“We all know how fast company needs can change, and we think the best way to create certainty in today’s business environment is to partner with a visionary provider that offers extremely innovative network services,” said Chris MacFarland, Chairman and CEO, Masergy. “Pioneering software-defined networking two decades ago, Masergy has always focused on the future. In 2020, our clients were again the beneficiaries of our foresight and innovation with Work From Anywhere solutions and one cloud platform to address all their network, collaboration, and security needs.”

Businesses of all sizes trust Masergy to deliver the cloud and network platform that transforms their digital business. In the last year, Masergy released new innovations including SD-WAN at Home and SD-WAN On the Go as well as:

  • SASE: Masergy solutions adhered to the key tenets of the Secure Access Security Edge (SASE) model long before the term was coined, which gave the company a jump start on delivering SASE capabilities to clients.
  • 100% Service Availability SLAs with Proactive Credits: When cloud application performance is more critical than ever, Masergy is committed to 100% service availability for cloud connections and SD-WAN sites configured for redundancy and high availability. The company is also redefining the industry by proactively and automatically crediting clients after an availability SLA is not met.
  • The Broadest Choice in SD-WAN: Recognizing that moving to SD-WAN is a journey for companies, Masergy expanded its solution portfolio with more options in network, access, management, and security.

Masergy continues to innovate for the future using AIOps (AI for IT Operations) as a virtual network assistant and to automate network operations in the push toward autonomous networking. SD-WAN clients also enjoy Shadow IT Discovery solutions, machine learning analytics and the transparency they need to optimize their business.
