David Hughes On Secure SD-WAN Vs. The Competition  

Everybody in the industry has a different heritage. And we’ve got one that’s unique. There are a bunch of innovators in this area like Zscalar, or Netskope, that were truly born in the cloud. And they’re coming at this problem thinking, how do we solve the problem from the cloud? What can we do in the cloud? How can we help? And how can we direct traffic to ourselves in the cloud, perhaps using agents? On the other side of the table, you’ve got security players that were born in the data center, [companies] like Cisco, Palo Alto, or Fortinet. They specialize in building a perimeter around your most precious assets. They’re in the data center building a fortress. And now, as perimeter is dissolving, they’re thinking about how to take their perimeter-based technology and repurpose that for a world where the cloud is more important.

As I said, Silver Peak and Aruba are rather unique in that we weren’t born in the cloud. And honestly, we weren’t born in a data center. Both companies were born at the edge of the network. I think that gives us a really unique perspective on how we think about security. We think of the edge as being at least as important as the data center, or the cloud. We think the edge is the pivot point that enables you to make a security transformation, and a WAN transformation at the edge. You’re allowed to make this journey without compromise and doing things in a way that makes sense for you, and your business, and where you’re at.
