Gina Narcisi

With hybrid cloud, edge networking, and SASE top of mind in 2021, here are 10 enterprise networking upstarts that made their mark during a time of rapidly changing networking requirements.

Aviatrix

CEO: Steve Mullaney  

Hybrid cloud network upstart Aviatrix Systems is making a name for itself by offering visibility into complex, multi-cloud networks for enterprises asking for cloud-native networking offerings that support new ways of accessing applications. It’s the company’s opinion that the longtime networking incumbents won’t be winning in the “new world” of IT environments, the company told CRN.

The Santa Clara, Calif.-based company is looking to go to market with partners, especially those solution providers that aren’t tied to the on-premises world. Aviatrix in September raised $200 million in Series E funding, which it’s using to scale worldwide sales and support operations, the company said. Aviatrix’s long list of customers include VMware, Netflix and NASA.
