Cradlepoint named Challenger and Outperformer in GigaOm Radar Report for SASE

Cradlepoint’s SASE solution recognized for its comprehensive 5G-optimized security capabilities

BOISE, Idaho, Feb. 20, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Cradlepoint, part of Ericsson and the global leader in cloud-delivered LTE and 5G wireless network solutions, has been named a Challenger and Outperformer in GigaOm’s Radar for Secure Access Service Edge. Noted as one of the “vendors to watch out for” due to its development of SASE solutions for 5G use cases, GigaOm rated Cradlepoint’s SASE solution “exceptional” in the categories of flexibility, configurability, manageability and vendor support.

“Addressing the need for a comprehensive 5G-optimized SASE solution with improved capacity, latency, and speed, and incorporating zero-trust principles, Cradlepoint’s SASE enables lean IT teams and SMBs to manage network access, security, and observability across 5G wireless connectivity in any hybrid WAN,” according to Ivan McPhee, Senior Industry Analyst at GigaOm.

The report also highlights the centralized management that will be offered through NetCloud Manager, bringing together security from Ericom and connectivity from Cradlepoint. As enterprises empower more staff with managed or unmanaged distributed devices, thereby increasing business agility, single-pane-of-glass visibility and management is paramount to enabling an equally agile security model.

“GigaOm’s recognition of Cradlepoint’s SASE solution as a challenger, outperformer and vendor to watch makes it clear that Cradlepoint remains at the forefront of SASE innovation,” said Donna Johnson, CMO at Cradlepoint. “Vendors are racing to converge networking and security. However, our focus on a cellular-optimized security and SD-WAN solution is another strong confirmation of our leadership position in providing enterprises with market-leading 5G-optimized and hybrid WAN solutions.”

Cradlepoint is also focusing its SASE strategy on the networks of the future by enabling network slicing capabilities within 5G standalone (SA) networks. With Cradlepoint’s SASE solution, enterprises can seamlessly unlock the enhanced security and performance capabilities of 5G SA, such as application-based traffic steering into network slices.

Following the acquisition of Ericom Software in April 2023, Cradlepoint announced the industry’s first 5G-optimized unified SASE solution which is being phased in over a 12-month period beginning July 12, 2023.
