CRN Names Silver Peak a Networking and Infrastructure Company to Watch

Silver Peak Recognized for Well-Regarded Channel Program and Admired Technology Portfolio

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Mar. 22, 2012 Silver Peak Systems , the leader in data center class wide area network (WAN) optimization, today announced it has been recognized by CRN magazine as one of the top “ Networking and Infrastructure Companies to Watch .”  

“Silver Peak is a dark horse in the crowded WAN optimization space dominated by bigger competitors like Riverbed, Cisco and Blue Coat,” said Chad Berndtson, networking editor for CRN.  “Silver Peak, however, has an ace up its sleeve -- a well-regarded channel program that began in the storage channel -- and a technology portfolio so admired that Silver Peak was moved into the prestigious ‘Leaders’ quadrant in researcher Gartner's most recent Magic Quadrant for WAN Optimization Controllers.” 

“We are honored to be recognized by CRN for our technology leadership and strong channel program,” said Larry Cormier, senior vice president of worldwide marketing for Silver Peak.  “Silver Peak offers the highest-capacity and most comprehensive portfolio of WAN optimization products, and our network-based WAN optimization technology continues to be recognized as the best approach for customers and partners to address any wide area network challenges today and in the future.”
