Leader: Versa Networks

Versa Networks went from Visionary for the first two years of the WAN edge Magic Quadrant report to Leader in 2020 and 2021, thanks to its strong focus on combining SD-WAN with other branch networking functions, including routing and security. The company comes to market with its full-featured Versa Operating System (VOS), which can be delivered on the Versa branch Cloud Services Gateways (CSG) or third-party hardware, along with the Versa Director and Versa Analytics managed by the Concerto orchestration platform. Versa’s second offering is VOS with Titan, a cloud-based solution with limited native features designed for SMBs.

Versa offers one of the broadest and most-capable solutions in this market and the most-complete, single-vendor SASE solutions on the market, according to Gartner.

Versa still relies heavily on the carrier and service provider channel as a route to market, which could limit its reach. At the same time, many of Versa’s competitors are larger and have more financial and channel resources, which could affect the vendor’s ability to grow geographically, Gartner said.
