Virgin Media Business Inks SD-WAN Partnership with Versa

Virgin Media Business has inked a new partnership with SD-WAN provider Versa Networks.

Virgin Media will use Versa Network’s Cloud IP platform to provide fully managed secure SD-WAN services to enterprise customers. The multi-tenant software platform will enhance network performance, providing business customers with a highly-automated application intelligence service that improves their cloud experience. Security features in Versa’s Cloud IP platform, which includes IPSec encryption, add a layer of protection on top of customers’ existing traditional security architecture.

“Versa Networks is a true market disruptor, and therefore the perfect strategic fit for Virgin Media Business. Our partnership will put the cloud at the heart of our enterprise network and allow us to offer our customers an industry-leading service that gives them greater agility, flexibility and control over how they design and manage their corporate network to unlock their digital potential. SD-WAN is turning corporate IT on its head; enabling the IT to respond to the business needs rather than the business responding to what the IT can deliver.”

Kumar Mehta, co-founder and chief data officer of Versa Networks, said: “We are excited about partnering with Virgin Media Business to offer business essential SD-WAN services that enables them to provide excellent application user experience, agility, security and simplification to their customers’
networks. This collaboration is a testament to our ability to provide innovative solutions as organizations evolve on their digital transformation journey.”
