Cloud computing illustration with different device connectionsIn order to serve as a trusted advisor to our clients, we need to stay up to speed with the latest IT trends and solutions. To achieve that, our team of IT experts attends weekly training sessions conducted by various IT solution providers. Based on our extensive experience and sales volume with the suppliers, we receive exclusive, direct and usually in person training from these vendors. Our Tech Talks blog series offers a snapshot of these educational sessions.

Have you ever experienced technical issues and then found yourself caught in the middle of a blame game between your phone system and network providers? The phone system vendor points to your network as the issue, while your network provider says your phone system is the culprit. Avoid the finger pointing by relying on a provider that offers it all: networking, communications, and more. Our team recently met with representatives from Masergy, which delivers communications, networking and managed security solutions. With such a broad portfolio, they can serve as a one-stop shop for various business needs. Here’s what you need to know about who they are and the solutions they offer.    

Provider Overview
Masergy is headquartered in Plano, Texas and has been in business for 18 years. The company has established itself as a leading provider of hybrid networking, managed security and cloud communications solutions. Masergy combines an innovative software-defined platform with customizable solutions and has earned recognition 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), software-defined wide area networks (SD-WAN), direct cloud connectivity, real-time analytics and service control, and managed network functions.

Featured Offerings
As we’ve already mentioned, Masergy does it all, from SD-WAN to unified communications as a service (UCaaS). These are some of their standout offerings:

  • Collaboration capabilities: Give your team the tools they need to work together efficiently with Masergy’s integrated suite of cloud communications solutions, including global UCaaS, cloud contact center, and SIP trunking.

  • Networking: If you’re looking to establish a secure, reliable hybrid network, this provider can deliver SD-WAN, SD-VPNs, and Direct Cloud Connects, in addition to a suite of managed network functions.    

  • Managed security services: Masergy’s security operations center is staffed by in-house certified security experts at all times for continuous monitoring. Their managed security services also focus on advanced managed detection and response.

Having one provider for networking, communications, and security significantly simplifies things for your business. For example, if your organization decides to transition from an on-premise phone system to UCaaS and needs to ensure your WAN can handle it, Masergy can take care of both the networking and UCaaS solutions.
