CloudGenix Named a Finalist in the 2018 CRN® Tech Innovator Awards

Company’s AppFabric Recognized in the 2018 Enterprise Networking Category 

SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — CloudGenix announced today that CRN,® a brand of The Channel Company, has been recognized as a finalist in the 2018 CRN Tech Innovator Awards. These annual awards honor standout hardware, software, and services that are moving the IT industry forward. In compiling the 2018 Tech Innovator Award list, CRN editors evaluated 300 products across 34 technology categories using several criteria, including technological advancements, uniqueness of features and potential to help solution providers solve end users’ IT challenges. CloudGenix’s AppFabric took top honors in the Enterprise Networking category.

CloudGenix AppFabric is a revolutionary software-defined wide area networking (SD-WAN) platform that allows businesses to integrate cloud and SaaS applications, create a secure application-defined fabric across any WAN transport, reduce operational cost and complexity, and dramatically simplify and automate operations.  AppFabric operates at the application layer, which is in stark contrast to traditional network-layer devices, allowing IT to implement and enforce top-down policies that align with business goals, rather than a set of esoteric networking rules and protocols.

“CloudGenix has taken the networking world by storm.  Several hundreds of businesses and over ten percent of Fortune 100 branches rely on our AppFabric platform every day.  We are pleased that CRN has recognized how we have fundamentally changed the way networks are built by providing a secure, application-centric platform that truly aligns business goals with WAN policy, leading to confident cloud adoption, digital transformation, and material improvements in operations through automation,” said Joel Christner, VP of Marketing at CloudGenix.

“Each year, the CRN Tech Innovator Awards recognize technology vendor offerings that are reshaping the IT channel landscape by increasing worker productivity, reducing cost, and minimizing complexity for solution providers, IT departments, and end users,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “The winners in this year’s awards bring breakthrough ideas to the table for solution providers and their customers, in areas ranging from cloud to security to business intelligence to IoT. We congratulate all the winners and look forward to their future endeavors.”

The Tech Innovator Awards will be featured in the December issue of CRN and can be viewed online at crn.com/techinnovators.

Cisco Unites SD-WAN and Security to Address the New Cloud Edge

LAS VEGAS, Nov. 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Cisco Partner Summit — Cisco is unifying its security and software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) technologies to help organizations embrace the cloud faster with choice and confidence.

Cisco is unifying its security and SD-WAN technologies to help customers bridge to the cloud.

The WAN is undergoing a radical transformation. Today, organizations host their applications in multiple clouds – public, private and SaaS. The way people work has also changed; employees connect from coffee shops and airport lounges, instead of just the office. Now, organizations must rely on the Internet to connect users to business-critical applications. This has resulted in a new Cloud Edge – the intersection of networking and security.

Until now, SD-WAN solutions have forced IT to choose between application experience or security. By evolving its SD-WAN portfolio, Cisco is addressing the new realities of the Cloud Edge. Cisco SD-WAN can help IT deliver better application experiences and make users more productive with unmatched simplicity and scale. And now, best-of-breed security can be easily enabled anywhere it is needed, from the branch to the cloud.

“The emergence of the new Cloud Edge is disrupting our customers’ network and security architectures. Today, every WAN device must become software defined and secure,” said Scott Harrell, senior vice president and general manager, Enterprise Networking at Cisco. “Cisco’s SD-WAN makes it easy for customers to get the very best of networking and security. We are building a bridge to a new business world that speeds our customers’ ability to unlock the power of the cloud — faster with less risk.”

Cisco SD-WAN: Simple, Secure, Scalable
Cisco SD-WAN is built to address today’s most pressing issues, yet flexible enough to tackle the challenges of tomorrow. New innovations include:

  • Fusing Security with SD-WAN: From application-aware enterprise firewall and intrusion prevention, to URL filtering, advanced security is now integrated into Cisco SD-WAN devices and managed through a single pane of glass. And Cisco SD-WAN is all powered by Talos, the industry’s most powerful cyber threat intelligence solution.
  • Simplifying Cloud Security Deployments: By integrating Cisco SD-WAN with Cisco Umbrella, access to malicious destinations can be blocked before a connection is ever established.
  • Applications Experience: Cisco has partnered with Microsoft to enhance the Office 365 application experience for users. Unlike other vendors, Cisco SD-WAN monitors in real-time all available paths to the Microsoft Office 365 cloud. Using Microsoft Office URLs, Cisco is also able to determine the closest cloud, resulting in up to 40 percent faster performance for users.
  • Open and Programmable: With open APIs, Cisco SD-WAN provides service providers and partners the opportunity to create unique new services. To help developers and network engineers innovate, Cisco DevNet has created new SD-WAN learning labs and sandboxes.
  • New SD-WAN Infrastructure: With the world’s broadest SD-WAN portfolio powered by Viptela and Meraki, Cisco is offering even more options for customers with two new Integrated Services Routers (ISR) designed for small and large branch offices.
  • Quick Start Service: Cisco is also helping customers accelerate SD-WAN deployments and decrease risk via a new SD-WAN Quick Start Service.  For a fixed-price, customers get access to remote implementation and knowledge transfer capabilities to streamline projects.
  • Easy to Buy and Manage: Cisco has made it easier to consume and manage the new solution. Both the network and security can be purchased through a single license model and managed through a single interface.

Availability

  • Cisco SD-WAN Security and Microsoft Office 365 software: beginning Q4CY2018
  • Cisco ISR 1111X-8P and 4461 are available now
