Extreme Networks has completed the acquisition of Ipanema, the cloud-native, enterprise SD-WAN division of Infovista. The acquisition expands Extreme’s ExtremeCloudä portfolio, offering new cloud-managed SD-WAN and security software solutions required to power the Infinite Enterprise. Extreme will augment its ExtremeCloud portfolio with Ipanema’s SD-WAN capabilities, “adding more flexibility, capability, and security when connecting locations, applications and devices”, it said. Extreme said the acquisition accelerates the company’s goal of bringing distributed connectivity, security, and cloud capabilities to customers. The acquisition establishes a second technology centre of excellence for Extreme in Europe and deepens the company’s customer presence in that region. Ipanema has more than 400 customers and its solutions are deployed across more than 100,000 sites. Extreme plans to leverage Ipanema’s existing relationships with leading MSPs and XSPs as part of its go-to-market strategy across EMEA.
