Dispersive Introduces Unity Partner Ecosystem
Assembly of Technology and Market Leaders Working Together to Advance Secure and Scalable Solutions for Government Agencies, Enterprises, Smart Cities and the Industrial Internet of Things
Atlanta, GA, March 18, 2020 – Dispersive™ Networks, a provider of ultra-secure virtual networking for government and enterprise, today announced it is expanding its technology partner ecosystem by establishing a new support, integration and go-to-market community designed to solve the most important challenges in secure, resilient and high-performance networking.
Dispersive Networks is a next generation network security innovator who, with its patented and proven technology, developed Dispersive Virtual Networking (DVN) as a multi-path, multi-cloud software-defined network security IP overlay solution. DVN sends packets via multiple streams, and by splitting, encrypting and programming the individual streams to move when attacked or impaired, the network becomes self-healing, obfuscated and immune to attacks while significantly outperforming traditional SD WAN and VPN solutions.
Named Dispersive Unity™, this community of leading companies has grown organically, with several of the partners already rolling out solution deployments alongside Dispersive.
“As our business and technology have progressed, and as we continue to invest in even greater integration, new features and a more extensive set of APIs, we recognized the value of supporting the companies and organizations who understand and wish to leverage the advantages of our platform as part of a solution,” said Chris Swan, CRO.
“At Dispersive, we see the industry moving towards a strong and open secure virtual ecosystem that is crucial for the success of Digital Transformation. Our customers and partners are demanding open architectures, vendor cooperation, security and automation. This has led us to introduce our Unity program, an ecosystem of partners committed to working together on behalf of our customers,” said Ed Wood, CEO.
ADVA is the most recent partner to join the Unity Partner Ecosystem. Prayson Pate, CTO, ADVA Edge Cloud shared, “Dispersive has demonstrated leadership in their secure virtual networking with extensive integration and automation with ADVA’s Edge Cloud product offering which includes Universal CPE, NFV Orchestration and Zero Touch Automation. We are proud to become part of the Unity Program as we offer our mutual customers automated and integrated solutions to accelerate their Secure Edge Cloud and Digital Transformation Programs.” In parity, Dispersive has also joined ADVA’s Harmony Ecosystem of partners.

The pipeline, which carries 2.5 million barrels a day, nearly 50% of the East Coast supply of diesel, gasoline, and jet fuel, is still working to restore service and gain access to their systems after the malicious cyberattack, while its four mainlines remain offline.
