Versa Networks has entered into a partnership with Tangible Technology to offer SD-WAN services to Australian enterprises.

Under the terms of the agreement, Tangible Technology will bring Versa’s SD-Branch solutions to enterprises that will benefit from secure, flexible and customisable managed services accelerating their customer’s digital transformation journey.

"Tangible will offer its enterprise clients a broad range of integrated services such as Cloud/SaaS acceleration and enterprise-class security, along with a highly granular monitoring and analytics dashboard for delivering secure application and network performance, reliability and SLA attainment," said Kumar Mehta (pictured), co-Founder and chief data officer, Versa Networks. "Versa's differentiated solution enables Tangible to offer ubiquitous connectivity, along with SD-WAN and security services, at significant Capex savings to our mutual customers, while also providing an attractive value proposition to any enterprise traditionally held back by limited availability of skilled IT resources."

Tangible will use Versa FlexVNF, a secure Cloud IP multi-service, multi-tenant software platform recommended by NSS Labs for security-enabled SD-WAN and enterprise-class next—gen firewall, delivering end-to-end Layer 3 to Layer 7 security, NFW, SWG and UTM capabilities.

"Combining one software solution to address both the SD-WAN and network security markets represents a multi-billion-dollar annual revenue opportunity for MSP solution providers, transcending traditional hardware-oriented edge connectivity solutions," said Matt Adams, channel sales director at Tangible Technology. "Tangible is leading the movement to digital transformation and multi-cloud migration with a highly differentiated managed services model based on Versa's software-defined networking solutions."

The news comes in conjunction with Versa’s sponsorship of WAN Summit Sydney, together Versa and Tangible say that this solution will overcome the traditional challenges of conventional WAN connectivity.

At the start of the year, Versa partnered BringCom to launch its SD-WAN solution in Africa. Versa now delivers its SD-WAN capabilities to BringCom’s managed service providers and software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform operators in East and West Africa.
