According to Gartner, Inc., “a ‘Leader’ exhibits the ability to shape the market by introducing additional capabilities in its product offerings, and by raising awareness of the importance of these features. Key capabilities for a Leader revolve around the ADC capabilities that focus on enterprise application capabilities. We expect a Leader to have strong or growing market share, and to have solutions that resonate with an increasing number of enterprises. Expertise in complex data center application deployment is also necessary to be a Leader in the Magic Quadrant.”

This technology enables organizations of all sizes to efficiently scale their datacenter networks up, in and out to deliver apps, desktops and data to any user, on any device, over any network.
