Wedge Networks, the leader in Orchestrated Threat Management Company, announced that it has been named a Cool Vendor based on the April 20, 2016, report titled, “Cool Vendors in Communications Service Provider Security Solutions, 2016,” by Deborah Kish, Principal Research Analyst and Akshay Sharma, Research Director in the Carrier Network Infrastructure group at Gartner Inc.
The report evaluates interesting, new and innovative vendors, products and services in the security market that help carriers and service providers become more competitive, as well as offer new value-added services to their enterprise, government and home customers. In the report, Gartner explains that carriers and service providers (CSPs) “are looking for ways to move from siloed networking appliances toward fluid and dynamic cloud-based security solutions that support end-to-end control, along with dynamic pay-as-you-grow provisioning that can be provided with virtualized and orchestrated security systems.“
“We are honored to be named a Gartner Cool Vendor for 2016,” said James Hamilton, CEO of Wedge Networks. “We believe that the cloud is the center of nearly every network – it’s the last stop for data entering an organization, and the last stop for traffic exiting to the outside world. The cloud is the ideal place to implement security, and that’s why we provide cloud-based security for some of the world’s largest networks. By developing a revolutionary orchestrated threat management platform, Wedge Networks offers elastic scale security that is embedded in our customer’s cloud to protect all network users, with all devices, from all locations.”
The information provided in the Gartner report is of value to all IT professionals who are seeking to protect their networks using cutting edge cloud security, and to all CSPs and managed service providers looking for new value-added services to offer their customers.
