Open Systems Named in Gartner 2019 Market Guide for Managed SD-WAN Services

Sponsored by Businesswire

Open Systems announced today that Gartner, Inc. has included Open
Systems in its 2019 Market Guide for Managed SD-WAN Services, 2019

According to the report, “Managed SD-WAN services can improve operations
performance and reduce an enterprise’s need to grow internal
capabilities. This is because the managed SD-WAN services provider
becomes the single point of contact for monitoring, reporting, and
incident and change management of the SD-WAN product, and all WAN
transport, inclusive of access path diversity. This, in turn, allows the
enterprise’s internal resources to focus on higher objectives.”

Open Systems designed and built the most complete and flexible managed
secure SD-WAN solution, making it easy to consume a secure SD-WAN across
multiple clouds. The service includes around-the-clock network and
security operations managed by expert-level engineers and backed by
solid SLAs. All of Open Systems’ best-of-breed features and technologies
are integrated into the service, and security is built-in at every
layer. Enterprises don’t have to manage functions separately or worry
about interoperability. With Open Systems, everything is monitored via a
single pane of glass.

“We believe that Gartner’s comprehensive review of SD-WAN managed
services validates the increasing demand for these solutions and the
maturity of our industry,” said Martin Bosshardt, CEO of Open Systems.
“As readers dive into the report and review the capabilities and
recommendations, they will understand the powerful advantages of Open
Systems’ comprehensive, secure SD-WAN.”

“Most SD-WAN managed service providers are inherently limited by their
dependence on another vendor’s products, so there’s only so much they
can do to tailor solutions to the needs of a particular enterprise,”
said Martin Bosshardt, CEO of Open Systems. “Because we control every
operational aspect of our service, we can provide the most
comprehensive, flexible and secure SD-WAN, enabling enterprises to
reduce network risks, simplify compliance and eliminate the complexity
of managing a global IT network. However, unlike [most of] our
competitors, Open Systems controls every aspect of our service, so we
can provide a truly comprehensive, flexible and secure SD-WAN that
reduces network risks, simplifies compliance and eliminates the
complexities of managing a global IT network.”
