August 2018 Article in Network Computing Names Meta Networks Among “8 Networking Startups Shaking up the Industry”
PALO ALTO., August 22, 2018 – Meta Networks Ltd., the technology leader in software defined perimeter (SDP) solutions for secure remote access, today announced that the company has been recognized by Network Computing in an article titled, “8 Networking Startups Shaking up the Industry.” In the feature, the publication highlights eight of the hottest networking startups and how they are seeking to change the industry.
According to Network Computing, “The networking industry is no longer focused on hardware, and the transformation from hardware to software removes many of the major obstacles that networking startups faced in the past. Even the smallest of tech startups can enter the enterprise networking market and potentially shake up the entire industry. Several current trends offer networking startups new opportunities with the promise of using agility, focus and speed to market.”
“As more applications, data, and services are migrated to the cloud, large, on-premises corporate data center networks are rapidly becoming extinct,” noted the publication. “‘Meta Networks’ has built a global and secure network that organizations can leverage as an alternative to remotely connecting to the corporate LAN — only to be re-routed back out to a public cloud provider.”
Meta Networks’ network and security platform, Meta NaaS (Network-as-a-Service), is delivered as a service to connect people, applications, clouds, and sites within a software-defined perimeter. The new zero-trust paradigm for the ‘virtual private network’ revolves around users rather than physical topology, enabling enterprises to effectively restore the perimeter by protecting all employee traffic – both corporate and internet. The identity-based network security architecture is the only solution of its kind capable of supporting millions of users efficiently.
“Enterprises are moving toward cloud-based IT and Meta Networks is helping to secure that transition with policy-based network access to applications and data regardless of location, device or time,” said Etay Bogner, CEO and Founder of Meta Networks. “We appreciate the recognition by Network Computing as a top startup in this area and look forward to sharing our software-defined perimeter (SDP) solutions with organizations requiring secure remote access under a zero-trust operating model.”
