Masergy Recognized as a ‘Visionary’ in Gartner “Magic Quadrant for Network Services, Global” for Second Consecutive Year

Company’s software-defined hybrid networking drives digital transformation for global enterprises

Published on March 1, 2018

DALLAS – March 1, 2018 – Masergy, a leading provider of hybrid networking, managed security and cloud communications solutions, has once again been named a Visionary in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Network Services, Global.

According to Gartner1: “The network service market continues to undergo a major transformation, with new generations of software-based network technologies enabling development of innovative, new emerging services and business delivery models. Consequently, the enterprise is less focused on building and sustaining a large-scale infrastructure. To reflect this pivot, this Magic Quadrant focuses on transformational technologies and/or approaches that deliver on the future needs of the enterprise, rather than simply concentrating on legacy services.”

“We believe being named a Visionary for the second consecutive year while this year moving further to the right on our completeness of vision and higher in our ability to execute in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Network Services, Global is a testament to Masergy’s focused approach to innovation and operational excellence,” said Chris MacFarland, CEO, Masergy. “Global enterprises come to us for cloud-enabled network environments that accelerate digital transformation.”

The company’s innovative Hybrid Networking portfolio accelerates digital transformation with customized solutions that combine Software Defined-Virtual Private Networks (SD-VPNs), SD-WAN, managed network functions, direct cloud connectivity and real-time analytics and service control. Masergy’s innovative software-defined platform, customizable solutions, and superior customer experience have yielded a six-year track record of industry leading Net Promoter Scores (NPS®), currently scoring a 74 in 2017.

“Masergy’s software-defined network platform enables our portfolio of fully integrated networking solutions that challenge and surpass the status quo,” said Tim Naramore, CTO, Masergy. “We believe this vision consistently places us at the forefront of transformational technologies well before the rest of the industry.”
