Ipanema Positioned as a Visionary in Gartner’s 2013 Magic Quadrant for WAN Optimization Controllers

Ipanema provides a solution for branch-to-data-center, cloud/SaaS applications, unified communications and Internet/VPN hybrid WANs

Ipanema Technologies, the industry leader in Application Performance Guarantee for business efficiency, today announced it has been positioned in the “Visionaries” quadrant of the Gartner Magic Quadrant 2013: “Magic Quadrant for WAN Optimization Controllers” for the third consecutive year. (Gartner, Inc. Magic Quadrant for WAN Optimization Controllers, Joe Skorupa, Bjarne Munch, Mark Fabbi April 29, 2013).

“The IT world is more and more complex and enterprises need to be able to dynamically guarantee their business critical application performance while supporting new IT transformations like UCC, SaaS applications and hybrid networks. We believe being recognized for our strong existing relationships with service providers and systems integrators along with the proven scalability and robustness of our management platform, is a terrific testament to our entire team”, said Thierry Grenot, Executive VP of Ipanema Technologies. “We believe that being named a visionary in the Gartner Magic Quadrant “WAN Optimization Controllers” confirms that we capture the important trends for our customers, such as unified communications, cloud computing, big data, social networking, application SLAs and hybrid networks. Beyond pure WAN Optimization, we empower enterprises to guarantee the performance of their business application portfolio over their global network so that every user gets the best user-experience at the lowest possible cost. Ipanema’s position in the Gartner Magic Quadrant concludes an extraordinary year for the company including the rapid development of Ipanema’s US operations, its new AppsWork service targeted at the mid-market, its low-cost Nano device delivering “unmatched scalability for visibility control and application SLAs”, and a range of strategic partnerships including Polycom and Ingram Micro.”
