SAN JOSE, Calif., March 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Versa Networks, a leading innovator of next-generation, software-based networking and security solutions, today announced that it was selected by Hub One, a group providing information and communication technology services in professional environments – based in France, to provide managed software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) and software-defined security (SD-Security) to enterprise and SMB organizations throughout greater France.
“Networking is undergoing a significant metamorphosis as more organizations transition their infrastructure and data to cloud-based models to boost performance while cutting operational costs,” said Pierre Girbon, network product manager at Hub One. “Versa’s Cloud IP Platform provides our customers a wealth of functionality, as well as scalability, flexibility, and much-needed security features that allows them to stay competitive and realize the tangible benefits of the cloud while also enabling them to grow and expand to accommodate their network’s evolution.”
The Versa Cloud IP Platform features a comprehensive set of networking, security and application-aware capabilities. Versa managed service partners can deliver a fully Software Defined Branch (SD-Branch), which combines SD-WAN and SD-Security, to meet their customers digital transformation needs. This dramatically simplifies operations while improving the customer end-user experience of cloud and SaaS applications. The result is increased service agility, improved margins and better productivity for their customers.
Hub One, a subsidiary of the Group ADP, delivers managed IP/MPLS services and managed Wi-Fi in airport zones in France. Hub One deployed Versa Networks’ Cloud IP platform via its solution provider partner Interdata, enabling their customers to transform their WAN and branch networks to achieve numerous business advantages.
Hub One selected Versa Networks for its advanced platform functionality that outpaces competitive offerings and its multitenancy, which was built from ground up on cloud principles to deliver scale, segmentation, programmability and automation. It provides both advanced networking and security services in a single unified software platform along with service chaining capabilities.
Because of the limited infrastructure presence for some customers, it is important that the solution is deployable over third-party networks and integrates non-Hub One services but still gives the customer control and visibility.
Security was also a critical factor in the evaluation process. Versa’s Cloud IP platform, which has its own integrated security offering, adds an extra layer of protection that includes firewall and unified threat management, on top of customers’ existing standard defenses. In addition to the feature benefits, Versa’s carrier-grade cloud-native software provides Hub One significant cost savings compared to competitive offerings or traditional network hardware.
“Versa’s Cloud IP Platform makes it easy for Hub One to provide secure software-defined branch connectivity services to its customers,” said Hector Avalos, vice president EMEA sales, Versa Networks. “Versa prides itself on providing reliable, high-performance solutions to customers in all market segments around the globe — a commitment that is clearly reflected in our top-quality global customers like Hub One.”
