Porto Alegre, Brazil – Venko Networks, a leader in open-source connectivity solutions, has partnered with flexiWAN, the world’s first open source SD-WAN & SASE for delivering SD-WAN services in Brazil.

“flexiWAN is a disruptor in the SD-WAN and enterprise networking and security space. A key part of this revolution is the trend for network technologies to become software-only, allowing the changes we’ve seen in operating systems, browsers and databases to take place in this segment as well.” said Ricardo Pianta, Co-founder and CEO of Venko Networks. “flexiWAN is offering a unique solution to the market not only because it is the only open source in this field but also due to its open software architecture and SaaS business model.”
Still heavily hardware-based, networking technologies are in the process of transformation and the future will be dictated by those who adapt best, or, even more accurately, help create the path.
With these premises, flexiWAN launched the world’s first SD-WAN Open Source & SASE, initiating the fall of the routing monopoly and offering a viable, sustainable and robust alternative to the true vendor lock-in that providers and companies currently face in the market of corporate networks.
The software-defined network (SD-WAN) disaggregated and open source not only generates greater freedom, allowing the use of generic hardware (white box), in bare metal or universal CPEs configurations, but also provides a faster and more robust evolution of the technology as it collaborates with global technology partners and constantly updates and improves the solution.
Joining leading companies such as Telefónica that is already a customer of flexiWAN, Venko Networks is an official flexiWAN partner in Brazil, bringing the world’s most advanced technology in corporate networks to the country.
Already serving thousands of customers, the Brazilian not only offers SD-WAN and Zero Trust security, which can be added to the platform but also includes local knowledge, development, technical support and partnerships with local service providers and technology companies.
“Venko Networks is a valuable partner of flexiWAN in the Latin American market. Said Amir Zmora, Co-founder & CEO of flexiWAN. “As Venko Networks is actively contributing to the enhancement of the platform through intensive testing, feedback and other technical activities, Venko Networks is today an expert in flexiWAN and thus, offers high value to the customers it serves.”
In Venko’s vision, this is the type of partnership that aligns with its values and purposes, permeated in its solutions. Whether in R&D, SD-WAN, XGS-PON, uCPE or Network Security, the company focuses on software disruption and protagonism, as it believes that more seamless and free connections between companies, people and opportunities will make the world a better place.
