CEO: Amir Khan

Market Cap: Not a publicly traded company

Founded: 2012

Headquarters: San Jose, Calif.

The software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) startup would be a "great steal" for Cisco in 2016, according to the financial analyst. "SD-WAN is very hot right now, and Viptela is the most visible of the new SD-WAN players," he said.

According to a recent report by Gartner, WAN carriers will increasingly incorporate SD-WAN capabilities into their enterprise-class service offerings. By 2018, 10 percent of enterprises will have replaced their WAN routing with SD-WAN, up from less than 1 percent in 2015.

The startup emerged from stealth in May 2014, touting its Secure Extensible Network as the first software-based solution that integrates routing, network security and segmentation policy into a single solution. Viptela CEO Amir Khan was director of product management for Cisco from 2002 to 2007, before jumping to Juniper Networks.
