In an earlier blog post, I wrote about how SD-WAN was more than just a new acronym, but rather it represented a networking concept full of innovation and investment. Just as Citrix is a leader in developing SDN solutions with the NetScaler platform, Citrix is also a leader in the SD-WAN development with its CloudBridge offering.

Gartner has also taken notice of the SD-WAN space, and recently published its Market Guide for Software-Defined WAN.* In the report, Gartner recognizes Citrix CloudBridge as an SD-WAN solution.

The Gartner market guide provides a wealth of information on the emerging SD-WAN space, including enterprise drivers for deploying SD-WAN and the key technical elements of a solution. It also provides recommendations for enterprises interested in migrating to a next generation WAN. As such, we encourage customers, partners, and system integrators to read what Gartner has to say. Click here to read the full report.

Moreover, if you have any questions about the SD-WAN Market or the Citrix CloudBridge SD-WAN solution, please don’t hesitate to contact a Citrix sales professional or reseller partner.
