Spectra utilizes Versa FlexVNF, a secure Cloud IP multi-service, multi-tenant software platform certified by NSS Labs and ICSA Labs for enterprise-class security that provides a complete suite of Layer 3 to Layer 7 security, NGFW and UTM functionality.
The company said that growing businesses are realizing the challenges posed by conventional WAN infrastructures like network complexity, lack of agility, increasing cost of network operations and management, lack of visibility and skyrocketing bandwidth demands. With this new joint offering, Spectra and Versa aim to address these inherent challenges of the conventional modes of connectivity.
“Spectra can now offer its customers a broad range of integrated services like WAN and SaaS optimization, application aware and outcome based intelligent traffic routing, network security, and a centralized management and monitoring portal for network, application performance and security along with Internet connectivity,” said Kumar Mehta, co-founder and CDO, Versa Networks. “Versa's solution enables Spectra to offer connectivity and security services at huge Opex and Capex savings to our customers. The completely managed service by Spectra will appeal to any enterprise held back by limited availability of skilled IT resources, budgets and time.”
“Presently the SD-WAN and network security markets are multi-billion-dollar annual revenue opportunities, which are mainly served with traditional box and connectivity solutions. Spectra is leading the transformation of these offerings to the managed services model with software-defined networking solutions. Versa is a strategic partner collaborating with Spectra to develop its managed service offerings for businesses, which fits perfectly into our vision of delivering a 10x value proposition and differentiated experience for business customers,” said Udit Mehrotra, CEO, Spectra.
