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.

Perimeter 81

CEO: Amit Bareket  

SASE specialist Perimeter 81 has spent most time focused on cloud-based networking and security, but the company this year entered the SASE arena. Three-year-old Perimeter 81’s offerings can replace legacy and open-source VPN offerings.

The Israel-based company brought on Bob Kilbride as its first channel chief to boost business done through the channel from less than 10 percent today to eventually becoming a channel-first company, the company told CRN in February. In March, Perimeter 81 launched a channel partner program for MSPs.
