DALLAS — March 3, 2022 — Masergy, a Comcast Business company and the software-defined network and cloud platform for the digital enterprise, today announced it has been named a Visionary in Gartner, Inc.’s February 2022 Magic Quadrant for Network Services, Global1, report. This is the sixth consecutive year Masergy is positioned in the Visionaries quadrant. The report evaluates vendors based on completeness of vision and ability to execute.
“We’re honored to be named a Visionary in the industry,” said Chris MacFarland, chairman and CEO, Masergy. “Over the past year, focus has never been sharper on delivering smarter, more reliable remote connectivity, cybersecurity protections, and cloud-based collaboration. Masergy acts as the force converging these key capabilities into a single cloud platform, heightening the benefits of today’s digital business practices. Given Masergy’s pioneering history in secure software-defined networking and our forward-leaning innovation in AI for SD-WAN and SASE, our clients were able to transform with confidence, making the swift shift to hybrid work models.”
In the last year, Masergy announced new innovations designed to help companies deliver predictable application experiences for their distributed workforces:
- Performance Edge™ transforms public broadband access into a high-performing service making it perform more like private Ethernet circuits
- Enhanced AIOps capabilities improve cloud application performance, empowering IT managers to accelerate troubleshooting as well as predict and prevent outages
Masergy solutions adhered to the key tenets of the Secure Access Security Edge (SASE) model long before the term was coined, which gave the company a jump start on delivering SASE capabilities to clients. Masergy continues to innovate for the future using AIOps (AI for IT Operations) as a virtual assistant to automate network and security operations in the push toward autonomous IT environments.
In October 2021, Comcast Business announced its acquisition of Masergy, accelerating company growth in serving large and mid-size companies, particularly U.S.-based organizations with multi-site global operations.
