2019 firmware revision plans include enhanced security, routing and cloud functionality

Minneapolis, MN – December 20, 2018: ECESSA Corporation announced today plans for significant enhancements to its SD-WAN feature set to be included in 2019 firmware releases available to all Ecessa customers. The company has also reinforced its guarantee to provide 100% successful guided deployments for all customers.

"Other vendors focus on their portals or demos – Ecessa focuses on guaranteeing successful deployments, regardless of the environment,” said Mike Siegler, CEO of Ecessa Corporation. “We take time to discover our customers’ needs, the inner workings of their networks and what success looks like for them. We then use a guided deployment process, whether for a new installation or an upgrade, that walks the customer through each step. We go the extra mile to make our customers successful, whatever they need. You won’t get this level of attention from any other SD-WAN vendor.”

2019 SD-WAN Feature Roadmap

  • Full router functionality through the addition of BGP and Multicast features
  • Enhanced security with Layer 7 next generation firewall with IDS and IPS capabilities
  • Native cloud-based SD-WAN instances for Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure, in addition to the product’s current VMware ESXi capabilities
  • Improved application awareness with Deep Packet Inspection (DPI)

Siegler continued, “In addition to guaranteeing success for our customers today, we are also constantly adding features and capabilities to meet their future needs. The 2019 roadmap is a result of customer requests, industry advances and competitive assessment. We are investing to meet the expanding needs of our customers.”
