The gateway to the cloud is widening, with innovation leading the way to a more connected, integrated world. The network is the heart of operations, powering applications, enabling the flow of business. SD-WAN is offering a pathway toward transformation, opening the door to scalable, secure and robust performance.




Plixer announced that its network and security intelligence platform, Scrutinizer, promises multi-vendor SD-WAN visibility. The solution supports Viptela as well as VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud.

Steve Woo, senior director Product, VeloCloud business unit at VMware noted “We are very pleased to have Plixer as an ecosystem contributor to provide mutual customers with application and traffic visibility extending from the mobile edge, through the SD-WAN, all the way into the cloud. This combined solution allows VMware customers to optimize user experience for applications being accessed from datacenter, cloud and multi-cloud.”

The Scrutinizer solution offers a bevy of benefits that include the delivery of end-to-end visibility of the LAN and SD-WAN in a digestible format – as well as third-party visibility into SD-WAN performance. The solution monitors traffic paths across the SD-WAN, proactively notifies of topology changes, and performs SLA monitoring and assurance in addition.

“SD-WAN growth and adoption rates are exploding,” said Jeff Lindholm, President and CEO of Plixer. “Scrutinizer excels at collecting multi-dimensional telemetry from existing multi-vendor network infrastructures and cloud deployments to detect, visualize, report, and respond to network and security incidents. SD-WAN support has now been added to deliver true end-to-end visibility from the user all way the way to the cloud.”

SD-WAN clears the way for transformation, crossing the threshold into future-forward, secure,multi-cloud environments. What’s in your WAN?
