FYI, this story is more than a year old

Graphiant has introduced the Graphiant Network Edge to the market.

The new solution is set to provide connectivity between enterprise WAN, hybrid cloud, network edge, customers and partners, all delivered as-a-Service.

Khalid Raza, who is the co-founder of SD-WAN pioneer Viptela, is spearheading the project and says that Graphiant's Network Edge has MPLS-like performance and Internet-class agility.

"Network architects have to provide connectivity for an impossibly complex world," he says.

"Connecting business resources, hybrid cloud, edge networks and remote workers, is time-consuming, error-prone and full of security challenges. We've delivered a solution that removes this complexity."

The company says that its technology removes the need for Network Architects to build bespoke networks between every resource, hybrid cloud, edge network, customer and partner. Instead, they connect each resource to the Graphiant Stateless Core. 

All routing is handled by the Graphiant Core, and traffic remains encrypted from edge to edge creating complete security and privacy. SLA-grade performance is also guaranteed as part of the set-up.

Graphiant says that the Graphiant Network Edge will further enable organisations to face current market challenges and use cases with Internet-class agility. They will be able to connect all enterprise workers and resources without having to set up tunnels, as well as also being able to connect with customers and business partners quickly without the need for complex DMZ's and firewalls.

Testimony from customers and users in the sector reflects successful utilisation as well.

"Graphiant's technical advancements are revolutionary," says Valmont Industries Director of Network Operations Dixon Greenfield.

"Graphiant's private edge gives us MPLS-level performance, reliability and security as an agile and affordable service."

World Wide Technology AVP Cloud & Infrastructure Solutions Neil Anderson says as hybrid work trends continue to evolve, the new Graphiant solutions can help provide better certainty and service.

"Our customers are in the midst of a major transformation of their enterprise architectures due to the shifts to cloud and hybrid working," he says.

"We see Graphiant's Network Edge being a primary way our customers can simplify their architecture complexity, while at the same time taking advantage of additional visibility and higher levels of service, without sacrificing security."

Graphiant is funded by Sequoia Capital, Two Bear Capital & Atlantic Bridge. They are based in Silicon Valley and look to provide services to markets across the globe.

Raza has been previously labelled as the "Father of SDWAN", and the company website states that Graphiant aims to be the next step solution in helping modern companies to evolve from SDWAN to NaaS.
