Silver Peak Named a Leader in Gartner Magic Quadrant for WAN Optimisation

Silver Peak Continues to Shrink the Gap between Data Centres, Branch Offices and the Cloud

1st April, 2014 - Silver Peak today announced its position as a Leader in Gartner's 2014 Magic Quadrant for WAN Optimisation. The evaluation is based on completeness of vision and ability to execute.

"We believe Silver Peak is leading the way into a new era of software-defined WAN optimisation," said David Hughes, CEO of Silver Peak. "Now more than ever businesses depend on wide area networks to connect data centres, branch offices and the cloud. They see that better network performance means better bottom-line results. Silver Peak gives them the most comprehensive and flexible options for network acceleration, and the most innovative approach to the next-generation WAN."

According to Gartner, Leaders exhibit an ability to shape the market by introducing additional capabilities in their product offerings and by raising awareness of the importance of these features. Gartner expects a Leader to grow the market as a whole and to have solutions that resonate with an increasing number of enterprises. Leaders in the WOC market must have a broad feature set, including QoS, generic compression, protocol acceleration and file system acceleration, with the majority of features proved in substantial real-world implementations. They also need to be able to offer sales and support on a global basis.
