IHS Markit Announces Aerohive as Second Largest Cloud-Managed Networking Vendor

Following the announcement of Aerohive being recognized as the second largest vendor in the cloud-managed networking report by 650 Group, IHS Markit recently released their “Cloud-Managed Networking Annual Market Report”, also placing Aerohive as the second largest vendor only to Cisco in a landscape which continues to displace legacy on-premises network management solutions.

“Aerohive is the #2 provider of Cloud-managed networking equipment in terms of revenue,” said Matthias Machowinski, senior research director and advisor, enterprise networks and video for IHS Markit. “With more than three-quarters of its revenue derived from Cloud-managed networking, Aerohive is committed to this market. They have embraced a controller-less Wi-Fi model from the start, using a software tool to manage the Wi-Fi network, which Aerohive later made available as a SaaS offering. Aerohive also offers a flexible management model—companies can move back and forth from on-premises installations to public Cloud subscription or even an off-premises private Cloud, depending on evolving needs.”

From the very beginning in 2006, we believed that cloud-managed networking was the future, and we’ve been proven right many times over. As other vendors struggle to adapt to the needs of customers that include simple multi-site management, turn key deployment, and a clear network expansion path, Aerohive has evolved to a third generation cloud architecture to serve customers with new levels of business and IT insights and intelligence through machine learning and AI.

Network administrators are looking for an easier way to deploy, interact with, and maintain their networking hardware, and by eliminating the onsite hardware management piece of the equation, Aerohive provides IT departments with solutions that work for them. With our AI and machine learning platforms, we’ve moved from simply providing management of access points, switches, and branch routers, to enabling easier troubleshooting with Client 360, Network 360, and Maximum Client Capabilities. With our new Traffic Insights, we are enabling retail verticals to better measure ROI of new displays and planograms. As the IoT market continues to grow, we are enabling organizations to easily onboard, manage, and monitor all sorts of devices using Aerohive’s A3 NAC solution. While others vendors are starting to focus on developing their future strategies for the new market direction, for Aerohive cloud networking already lives firmly in all of our past, present, and future innovations.

“Aerohive pioneered Cloud network management, specifically designing the Enterprise-class HiveManager network management architecture for the Cloud,” said David Flynn, chief executive officer, Aerohive Networks. “Our industry-leading 3rdgeneration Cloud platform drastically reduces operational complexity and cost for our customers and partners. It’s great to be recognized as one of the two leading vendors in the Cloud-Managed WLAN market for our innovative and intelligent network management system.”
