Bell becomes the first Cisco service provider partner to take the Viptela SD-WAN solution, which Cisco acquired a little over a year ago, to market on a broad national platform.
From a product perspective, Savision’s IT Operation solution that integrates and controls monitoring, cloud, and service management tools data in a single pane of glass will enable Martello’s UC/SD-WAN offering to have this same seamless capability. From a business point of view, it doubles Martello’s sales and marketing resources, strengthens their channel, and turns their European presence from minor into a real strength.
Dell EMC will launch their new modular PowerEdge MX platform September 12, promising to remake data centre architecture with technology that will support both traditional and next-gen applications within a composable computing framework that pays much more attention to memory than earlier iterations of that technology.
The SD-WAN space has lately attracted the focus of big players like Cisco and VMware. Martello, which has been in business for years, is about to go public through a reverse takeover, and believes that their differentiated solution gives them something that they can take to market successfully through the channel against the big boys.
New features in Pulse Policy Secure include the improvement of Pulse Profiler, the addition of MacOS device support and improved vulnerability assessment capabilities, but from a channel point of view, the most important thing like is likely the deepening of integrations with the major firewall vendors.
