Graphiant Unveils New Graphiant Network Edge for Enterprises
Graphiant introduced the Graphiant Network Edge to the market.
The new solution is designed to provide connectivity between the enterprise WAN, hybrid cloud, network edge, customers and partners, all delivered as a service.
Khalid Raza, who is co-founder of SD-WAN pioneer Viptela, is spearheading the project and says Graphiant’s Network Edge has MPLS-like performance and Internet-class agility.
“Network architects must provide connectivity for an incredibly complex world,” he says.
“Connecting corporate resources, hybrid cloud, edge networks, and remote workers is time-consuming, error-prone, and poses many security challenges. We have provided a solution that removes this complexity.
The company says its technology eliminates the need for network architects to build bespoke networks between each resource, hybrid cloud, edge network, customer and partner. Instead, they connect each resource to the Graphiant Stateless Core.
All routing is handled by the Graphiant Core, and traffic remains encrypted end-to-end, creating complete security and privacy. SLA-level performance is also guaranteed as part of the configuration.
Graphiant asserts that Graphiant Network Edge will further enable organizations to address current market challenges and use cases with Internet-class agility. They will be able to connect all company employees and resources without having to set up tunnels, as well as being able to quickly connect with customers and business partners without the need for complex DMZs and firewalls.
Testimonials from customers and industry users also testify to successful use.
“Graphiant’s technical advancements are revolutionary,” said Dixon Greenfield, director of network operations at Valmont Industries.
“Graphiant’s private edge gives us MPLS-grade performance, reliability, and security as an agile, affordable service.”
According to Neil Anderson, AVP World Wide Technology Cloud & Infrastructure Solutions, as hybrid working trends continue to evolve, new Graphiant solutions can help provide better certainty and better service.
“Our customers are in the midst of a major transformation of their enterprise architectures due to the shift to cloud and hybrid working,” he says.
“We see Graphiant’s Network Edge as a critical way for our customers to simplify the complexity of their architecture, while enjoying additional visibility and higher levels of service, without sacrificing security.”
Graphiant is funded by Sequoia Capital, Two Bear Capital and Atlantic Bridge. They are based in Silicon Valley and seek to provide services to markets around the world.
Raza has already been called the “Father of SDWAN”, and the company’s website says Graphiant aims to be the next step in helping modern enterprises evolve from SDWAN to NaaS.
