This status means Logicalis is the only global gold partner who can deliver a managed SASE service to customers anywhere in the world!

The Logicalis and Cisco partnership is going from strength to strength! 

Following Logicalis’ proud win at the recent partner summit taking home the Cisco Global Enterprise Networking and Meraki Partner of the Year 2022, Logicalis is thrilled to announce new Cisco Powered validations for Secure Access Services Edge (SASE); Meraki SD-WAN and Cisco SD-WAN. 

Cisco Powered global Intelligent Connectivity solution.  Following months of planning and independent audits from Cisco, The Cisco Powered service status demonstrates Logicalis’ expertise for delivering SD-WAN and SASE offerings, all in a managed capacity under the umbrella of Intelligent Connectivity. 

The Logicalis Cisco Powered Intelligent Connectivity solution is a SASE-based managed offering that delivers access and zero-trust security from edge to edge, with real-time insights into network, connectivity, and application performance, helping customers succeed in a digital first world. 

On this achievement, Alexandra Zagury VP, Partner Managed and as-a-Service Sales commented:

“Over two thirds of SD-WAN deployments are expected to be delivered as a managed service by 2025. Meanwhile, the shift to SASE – of which SD-WAN is a part – is fostering new choices in enterprise network security. Cisco is working with Logicalis to help our mutual customers prepare for a future in which their WAN and edge can deliver continuous agility and business outcomes as their business dynamics change.” 

A partnership going from strength to strength.  As one of only six Cisco global gold certified partners, Logicalis is defining the future of next-generation connectivity by creating SD-WAN, SASE and Managed Private 5G for Enterprise solutions, that achieve substantial business outcomes for customers.
