Total Economic Impact™ Study Reveals Virtual Edge Platform with Versa Networks Delivered 130 Percent ROI to Organizations

Versa Networks | August 26, 2022

Versa Networks, the recognized secure access service edge (SASE) leader, today announced findings from a commissioned Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study conducted by Forrester Consulting. The study, Total Economic Impact of Dell Virtual Edge Platform (VEP), commissioned by Dell Technologies, revealed that organizations using Dell VEPs powered by Intel processors running Versa Operating System (VOS)™ realize benefits of $1.53 million over three years versus costs of $663,000, resulting in a net present value (NPV) of $864,000 and a return on investment (ROI) of 130 percent, with the combined solution paying for itself in nine months. To better understand the benefits, costs, and risks associated with this investment, Forrester interviewed four enterprise customers with experience using Dell VEPs powered by Intel processors running Versa Operating System (VOS)™ in a secure software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) environment. These organizations range from serving U.S. and Europe to global operations, in industries described as financial services and banking; oil and gas equipment services; a SD-WAN service provider; and localization, translation, and videogame testing. To create a framework to quantify benefits, Forrester constructed a financial model representative of the interviews using the TEI methodology and risk-adjusted the financial model based on issues and concerns of the interviewees’ organizations. The model measured a three-year ROI based on customer and Forrester interviews, and financial analysis. According to the study, “By implementing the Dell VEP devices running the Versa Operating System (VOS), users can enhance their existing digital networking stack to promote the efficiency of data transfer throughout their organizations. The senior network engineer for a localization, translation, and videogame testing organization said: ‘The preinstalled Versa software offers remote-access VPN. With our Dell VEP devices already in place, we can easily start utilizing that without having to buy anything else.’” The independent study found that prior to using Dell VEP and Versa, the organizations used a combination of networking technologies and vendors to manage their networks. Their solutions were limited, slow, and lacked newer technology integrations. Outages were frequent and expensive, and management continually fielded complaints regarding connection speed and downtime. The organizations also faced global supply chain and product quality issues. According to the study, “The central platform for managing the combined Dell VEP, Intel, and Versa solution allows organizations to monitor and gather accurate data across all appliances and realize efficiencies in responding to that data. One manager explained: ‘With the Dell VEP and Versa combination, we get components that manage the whole solution, all the appliances at all the sites and all the configurations. Now we can do that all in one place, whereas before, it was going to every single router when you needed to make a change. So the centralized management, logging, and reporting have been key to us.’” Based on the interviews, Forrester constructed a TEI framework, a composite company, and an ROI analysis that illustrates the areas financially affected. The composite company is representative of the four companies that Forrester interviewed and is used to present the aggregate financial analysis. The resulting composite organization was characterized as a U.S.-based enterprise in the financial services industry maintaining global operations; having an annual revenue totalling $5 billion; and managing 50 branch offices, increasing to 60 by Year Three. According to the study, with Dell VEP devices powered by Intel processors running VOS, organizations found a cost-effective solution that met networking requirements, supported their SD-WAN strategy, and came from a vendor that could deliver reliably worldwide. Quantified benefits attributable to Dell VEP and Versa include: Avoided unnecessary purchases, with a three-year total savings of $216,000 Employee productivity gains from improved supply chain, with a three-year total savings of $237,500 IT resource time saved, with a three-year total savings of $335,160 Multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) cost savings, with a three-year total savings of $1,058,063 Unquantified benefits that customers experience include a reliable partnership with Dell; centralized management, reporting and logging; improved visibility and analytics; upgraded security posture; enhanced user experience due to improved traffic steering; and flexibility. A director of IT network infrastructure at an oil and gas equipment and services organization commented on the combined value of Dell VEP and VOS SD-WAN: “The benefit is that I have a central policy and can push it everywhere. The activation of a device at a new location is a lot easier as well. You just pull the configuration from the directory — you don’t have to individually program it.” “The customers featured in this study have established Versa as their strategic partner for addressing their complex secure access, networking and digital transformation needs, Versa SASE delivers unique integration of networking and security SASE services – including SD-WAN – via the cloud or, if customers prefer, delivered on-premises or as a blended combination of both. We feel this study by Forrester Consulting highlights the experiences of our customers and affirms the employee productivity gains, IT resource time saved, and upgraded security posture that organizations can achieve with Versa.” Michael Wood, Chief Marketing Officer for Versa Networks Versa SASE delivers tightly integrated services via the cloud, on-premises, or as a blended combination of both via VOS with a Single-Pass Parallel Processing architecture and managed through a single pane of glass. Versa began delivering SASE services such as VPN, Secure SD-WAN, Edge Compute Protection, Next-Generation Firewall, Next-Generation Firewall as a Service, Secure Web Gateway (SWG), and zero trust network access (ZTNA) more than five years ago. Versa uniquely provides contextual security based on user, role, device, application, location, security posture of the device, and content. About Versa Networks Versa Networks, the leader in SASE, combines extensive security, advanced networking, industry-leading SD-WAN, genuine multitenancy, and sophisticated analytics via the cloud, on-premises, or as a blended combination of both to meet SASE requirements for small to extremely large enterprises and Service Providers, and via the simplified Versa Titan cloud service designed for Lean IT. Thousands of customers globally with hundreds of thousands of sites trust Versa with their networks, security, and clouds.

Lulea University of Technology Transforms Delivery of Education with Citrix

Citrix | August 22, 2022

Just like work, education today can happen anywhere. And students want the freedom and flexibility to choose where and how they learn best. Luleå University of Technology (LTU) understands this, and is using solutions from Citrix Systems, Inc. to tear down the walls of the traditional classroom and deliver a modern experience that empowers its student to learn from anywhere and perform at their best. “Teaching has become space independent, We are a university of technology and we are expected to be at the forefront in using IT to provide a superior educational experience in the classroom, the dorm room and anywhere in between.” Daniel Ström CIO, LTU Borderless Classrooms When the pandemic hit, LTU did just this, leveraging Citrix DaaS to create cloud-based workplaces through which teachers and students could access everything they needed to stay connected and continue learning. LTU’s students use 300 different applications, some of which require significant computing power traditionally provided by powerful workstations available in on-campus computer labs. And for students to continue learning remote - often using low-powered, personal laptops and other devices - LTU needed to provide access to these applications. It was a tall order. But LTU was able to fill it using Citrix DaaS to provide students with secure access to their desktops and applications from anywhere and Microsoft Azure to allocate the processing power and computing resources required to support them. “With Citrix, it was very easy for us to step up and make this available for all the students through their own computers,” said Lennart Isaksson, Head of Student Computer Lab Administration, LTU. And it was able to do it quickly, enabling full remote availability for 19,000 students in a matter of days. “When it comes to remote desktop use cases, nothing comes close to Citrix,” Ström said. Simplified Management One of the biggest advantages of Citrix, according to Isaksson, is the time saved in application management. “With the traditional PC model, it would take several hours to install all the necessary applications on each PC. And we have over 800 student computer lab PCs,” he said. “With Citrix, it’s much better. We have a single, base image with all the applications and we just replicate it to all the virtual machines that we are spinning up.” Enhanced Security Another key benefit of Citrix DaaS is the enhanced security it provides. “It’s a much safer approach than the traditional PC model,” Isaksson said. “All the apps are up to date and always available from any endpoint device.” Modern Education And of importance to Ström, Citrix makes it easy for LTU to keep pace with technology as it evolves and deliver the IT performance and experience that its students expect. “Young people today are raising the bar,” he said. “When you build a new computer lab under the traditional model, you get only 12 to 24 months when it is modern. After that, the students get less and less satisfied. With the Citrix model, we can add new machines in the background as the technology evolves, so the computer labs are always new and fresh.” LTU joins hundreds of educational institutions around the world who are using Citrix to transform learning.
