DALLAS — February 27, 2019 — Masergy, a leading provider of secure SD-WAN, cloud communications and managed security solutions, announced today that Gartner, Inc. has positioned them as a Visionary in its 2019 Magic Quadrant for Network Services, Global1 report. This is the third year in a row that Masergy has appeared in the Visionaries quadrant based on completeness of vision and ability to execute.
The report evaluated 15 different vendors and placed Masergy as the lone Visionary in the quadrant. According to Gartner¹, “Enterprises are focusing on increasing the agility of their networks and on services that can enable their adoption of cloud IT delivery and eventual adoption of the Internet of Things (IoT). This is leading to most new global networks being based on SD-WAN and making greater use of the internet as a primary WAN transport. Additionally, enterprises are more willing to utilize smaller providers and innovative services consumed on an as-a-service basis.”
“Masergy’s global software-defined platform empowers the world’s most reliable, agile, cost-effective, and secure SD-WAN solution in the market,” said Chris MacFarland, Executive Chairman and CTO of Masergy. “Over the past 12 months, we have gained significant market share from both the legacy players as well as many of the new entrants in the space.”
“To us, being named the sole Visionary provider among a crowded field of competitors is an affirmation how Masergy empowers businesses to achieve their digital ambitions through our software-defined platform and unparalleled customer experience,” said James Parker, CEO of Masergy.
