Saisei Awarded EMA "Vendor to Watch" for Network Performance Enforcement

Recognized for Unprecedented Network Visibility, Control and Security in Software and Real-Time

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwired - October 09, 2014) - Saisei, a company pioneering network performance enforcement, today announced that it has been named a "Vendor to Watch" by leading industry analyst firm, Enterprise Management Associates (EMA). EMA Vendors to Watch are companies that provide unique customer value by solving problems that have previously gone unaddressed.

"Effectively merging deep network visibility with granular, automated, policy-based control has long been the holy grail of network capacity and performance optimization. Up to this point, approaches have been piecemeal, aligning but never truly marrying visibility with direct control of network activity in a closed-loop manner. Saisei is taking a newly comprehensive approach to unifying network traffic and security monitoring, visibility, and control," said Jim Frey, vice president of research at EMA.

"Current approaches are largely reactive and hardware-based, and can never hope to keep up with the dynamics of real-world IT, where conditions demand change on a real-time basis. Saisei provides a new and distinctive software-based approach that tightly couples visibility with control and offers a pragmatic path for secure, high-performance optimization that is granular, policy-based, and automated wherever automation makes sense," said Frey.

Saisei overcomes traditional performance hurdles by using its patented traffic management algorithms in Saisei FlowCommand to optimize routed IP-link capacity to run at 95% or above without delaying traffic flow. The combination of real-time analytics and policy control makes it possible to reduce network security risks via early identification of rogue network traffic and application of automated risk mitigation controls. The technology also enables either an enterprise or a service provider to enforce net neutrality to ensure that bandwidth is shared equally among users (or at least equitably by user/business priority). The FlowCommand solution also allows for granular service-level differentiation paired with policy enforcement, enabling detailed fine-tuning at the user, flow, and application levels.

"We're honored to receive EMA's prestigious Vendor to Watch award," said Saisei Founder Bill Beckett. "It's great to have EMA recognize the significant benefits that NPE and FlowCommand can provide to their enterprise and service provider clients in terms of a much more unified, real-time and software-based approach to network visibility, control and security."
