F5 Networks (NASDAQ: FFIV) today announced that it has again been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Leaders quadrant of its Magic Quadrant for Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs), published August 29, 2016.
“With cloud and as-a-service offerings joining hybrid deployments at the forefront of the market, it’s an exciting time in the ADC space,” said Ben Gibson, EVP and Chief Marketing Officer at F5. “We believe F5’s standing in the Magic Quadrant over time mirrors the value customers see in our technology and services portfolio, with differentiated capabilities across software and hardware solutions.”
In describing the market, Gartner states, “Application delivery controllers (ADCs) provide functions that optimize delivery of enterprise applications across the enterprise network. ADCs provide functionality for both user-to-application and application-to-application traffic, and effectively bridge the gap between the application and underlying protocols and traditional packet-based networks.” 1
