Frost & Sullivan Recognizes Cirion with the 2023 Company of the Year Award in the Latin American managed SD-WAN industry

MIAMI, FL, May, 29, 2023 –Frost & Sullivan awarded Cirion Technologies with this year’s Best Practices Company of the Year Award in the Latin American managed SD-WAN industry, recognizing Cirion for its consistent growth strategy, based on a visionary understanding of the future and effectively address new challenges and opportunities.

Enterprises in Latin America are accelerating digital transformation initiatives, moving core applications to the cloud, and enabling work from anywhere.

Consequently, businesses across industries are embracing software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) services as an integral part of their WAN transformation strategy, largely to gain cost and operational efficiencies.

Cirion captured a first-mover advantage in bringing to market a first-of-its-kind product and agreement package in a software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) solution in Latin America, trusting that this technology would provide a leap in quality for WANs. Enabling the next generation of network optimization, Cirion’s SD-WAN empowers organizations with intelligent routing, faster branch site deployment, centralized policy management, and direct internet connectivity to public clouds and cloud applications.

“Cirion Technologies’ predecessor company, Lumen Technologies, was one of the first network providers in the region to launch a standard SD-WAN service. The forward-looking move back in 2019 demonstrated the company’s commitment to innovation and in addressing unmet market demands,” said Leandro Agion, Industry Director for Frost & Sullivan.

Cirion´s digital infrastructure enables SD-WAN users to construct secure private networks across a combination of public and private infrastructures, including site-to-site encryption, regardless of the underlying access or transport technologies. The solution enables centralized management and control for businesses to route traffic on an application-by-application basis or by access type, enabling the connectivity of sites through a variety of backbone connections.

Additionally, the SD-WAN solution enhances enterprise network resources with the capacity to handle multiple types of access, such as broadband, dedicated Internet, and MPLS.

As part of its analysis, Frost & Sullivan found that Cirion has a strong base of network assets in Latin America to leverage across the SD-WAN portfolio, has strong partnerships with leading SD-WAN vendors, and has its own VNF platform. Moreover, Cirion is a market leader in the B2B segment and can target a wide scope of customer segments by providing the choice to deploy services that best suit customers’ price points and application requirements.

Cirion adopts a flexible strategy for SD-WAN service implementation, by partnering with different technology providers such as Versa Networks, Cisco SD-WAN (Ex-Viptela), Cisco Meraki, Fortinet and Velocloud (as VMware), to reach customers of multiple segments.

The company’s SD-WAN service enable a new level of visibility and control over applications and traffic, prioritizing business-critical elements. Furthermore, the early launch of its SASE offering is a competitive advantage for Cirion because SD-WAN managed service providers must offer a clear roadmap to SASE.

This recognition by Frost & Sullivan validates our efforts to deliver a simple enterprise user experience with sophisticated capabilities and reinforces Cirion’s ongoing leadership in delivering a wide range of services that meet our customers’ needs, all while providing a high level of service,” said Leonardo Barbero, President & EVP of Products and Sales for Cirion Technologies. “Cirion is committed to accompany Latin American businesses to achieve their technological goals and continue on their digital transformation journeys.”
