Historically, cloud networking provider Masergy has offered Wide Area Network (WAN) solutions like MPLS to help mid-size businesses and enterprises connect multiple sites. However, they have broadened their focus and evolved over the years to become much more than just a WAN provider. Now they also deliver comprehensive managed security and managed software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) solutions.
Our team recently met with Masergy representatives for a lunch and learn to discuss their products and services. Here are some key details about the company and their managed security and SD-WAN solutions.
Masergy is a leading provider of managed security, hybrid networking, and cloud communications solutions. The company got its start nearly two decades ago and combines an innovative software-defined platform with customizable solutions. Gartner has recognized the networking provider as a Visionary in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Network Services (Global) for its portfolio of innovative hybrid networking offerings, including software-defined virtual private networks (SD-VPNs), SD-WAN, direct cloud connectivity, real-time analytics and service control, and managed network functions.
Here’s a quick rundown of some of this provider’s innovative security and networking offerings.
- Managed security: Masergy has a full-blown security operations center staffed by in-house certified security experts 24/7, which allows for continuous monitoring. Their managed security offering allows for comprehensive threat detection and response involving the use of advanced analytics, patented machine learning techniques, and more.
- Managed SD-WAN: For companies that rely increasingly on cloud-based applications, traditional WAN solutions are no longer enough. SD-WAN serves as a high-performing and secure multi-site networking solution. This managed SD-WAN offering gives businesses the benefits of an agile global network, including zero-touch provisioning, dynamic app performance, and built-in analytics. Gain the ability to add new sites to your network quickly while still containing costs.
