SD-WAN 2021


Community Members (free subscription) can access both the SD-WAN Ratings Chart™ and Methodology. Thirteen market leaders have been rated. Ratings ranged from AAA – CC. These ratings are based on rigorous assessments and include data licensed from NSS Labs.


A Personal membership is required to gain access to the detailed reports. Reports are provided for ten of the thirteen shown in the Ratings Chart. Of the ten vendors, four vendors were tested for Large, Medium and Small installations (labeled Branch 1, 2 and 3) providing a deeper dive for those products.

Product Rating Reports are provided for Barracuda Networks, Citrix, Cradlepoint, Fatpipe, Forcepoint, Fortinet, Oracle (Talari Networks), Silver Peak, Versa Networks and VMware (VeloCloud).

Cisco, Juniper, and Palo Alto Networks (CloudGenix) ratings were based on data that was obtained from confidential sources. There are no plans to publish accompanying detailed reports for these three vendors.

Ratings considerations included measuring technical capabilities such as dynamic path selection, path conditioning, link saturation and congestion, quality of service, high availability, rated throughput, as well as user experience, management and reporting capabilities, and customer feedback.

Ratings range from AAA-D. A product rated ‘AAA’ has the highest rating assigned by CyberRatings. The product’s capacity to meet its commitments to consumers is extremely strong. A product rated ‘D’ is actively underperforming and does not meet the use-case. A complete list of the rating definitions can be found here.
