Silver Peak Wins Two 2018 NetworkWorld Asia Readers’ Choice Awards

Leads SD-WAN category for Product Excellence three years running; earns Rising Star Award in Networking Solutions category

Singapore, October 26, 2018 – Silver Peak®, the global SD-WAN leader, delivering the transformational promise of the cloud with a self-driving wide area network, today announced that it has been awarded the NetworkWorld Asia 2018 Readers' Choice Product Excellence Award in the Software-Defined WAN solution category for the third consecutive year. Silver Peak also scored its first Readers' Choice Rising Star Award in the networking solution category.

The Readers’ Choice Product Excellence Awards recognize established solution providers that have made the most impact on Asian end-user organizations in 2018, and the Rising Star Award recognizes solution providers whose technologies, products or solutions are deemed to have great potential in meeting enterprise needs. The awards are based exclusively on votes from qualified readers of NetworkWorld Asia, Asia Cloud Forum, Security Asia and Storage Asia.

The Silver Peak Unity EdgeConnectTM SD-WAN edge platform enables enterprises to break free from the limitations of traditional networks by shifting to a business-first networking model. EdgeConnect replaces routers by unifying SD-WAN, firewall, segmentation, routing, WAN optimization and application visibility and control in a single platform. EdgeConnect continuously learns and adapts to meet the requirements of the business, delivering the highest quality of experience to enterprise users and IT organizations.

“We are honoured to receive the NetworkWorld Asia reader’s choice product excellence award for the third consecutive year and believe this serves as a testament of our technology leadership and commitment to innovation,” said Damon Ennis, senior vice president, products at Silver Peak. “In this multi-cloud era, forward-thinking executives from thousands of companies rely on Silver Peak and its leadership in SD-WAN and WAN Edge infrastructure to fully realize the transformational promise of the cloud. It is extremely rewarding to have the success and value we deliver to our customers and partners recognized by the readers of Network World Asia.”

“As enterprises rapidly migrate applications and infrastructure to the cloud, many are years away from fully realizing the benefits of the cloud, citing application disruptions and networks that can’t keep pace with demands. The Silver Peak Unity EdgeConnect SD-WAN edge platform has been recognized by our readers for its unique business-first capabilities that enable enterprises and service providers to break free from the compromises of yesterday’s router-centric approaches and transform their networks to enable the business, rather than constraining it.” said Raymond Tan, Managing Editor, NetworkWorld Asia.
