It gives me great pleasure to share with you that Radware has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Leaders Quadrant for its Application Delivery Controllers in the October 30, 2013 Magic Quadrant. If you’re not quite familiar with the report, let me just point out that it is of top importance to decision makers among enterprise, carrier, and cloud data centers when considering buying an ADC/load balancer. If you didn’t have the chance to review the report, you can access it here.
Only today, I received correspondence from colleagues around the globe, stating how proud they are. And for good reason: Radware is not only positioned as a leader vendor for the fifth time, but we’ve also improved our position yet again in the Magic Quadrant by moving up (ability to execute axis) AND right (completeness of vision axis).
Reflecting upon what we were recognized for, here are my thoughts:
I think we’ll definitely hear about more business success with our Alteon NG solution, the only ADC that fully ensures application SLA at all times.
Not to mention, our VADI architecture is awesome; you can see it in numerous ADC consolidation and private/public/hybrid cloud deployments.
When it comes to our SDN applications, today they run on top of OpenDaylight, IBM DOVE, NEC pflow, and Cisco XNC; and we are members of the OpenDaylight initiatives, already contributing significant code in order to standardize SDN network service APIs.
And, when it comes to protecting your investment, the guarantee we place on our platforms, enables us to extend our customer’s project lifetime, thus providing a higher ROI.
I hope you’re excited about this news as much as we are. Radware understands that mission‐critical applications can affect employee productivity, business reputation as well as generated revenues. We’re doing our best to ensure we can help you deliver advanced application delivery services in the most cost‐effective way.
