"We are thrilled and honored that Gartner has once again recognized Orange Business as a Leader in its Global Network Services 2021 Magic Quadrant. Since 2001*, Gartner has identified us in a Leader position for both of its key measurements: 'completeness of vision' and 'ability to execute.'

"We aim to make our customers more agile, more secured and better adapted to changes for their business needs, so we are delighted that Gartner has, we believe, recognized the soundness of our strategy and vision this year.
"We believe that our highest position on the 'ability to execute' axis is recognition of the satisfaction of customers who have implemented our Flexible SD-WAN offering. Whether cloud, Internet, bandwidth or routing optimization, Orange Business provides unrivaled support for customers to ensure they are ready to meet today’s increasingly demanding digital transformation requirements.
"As a network-native digital services company, we incorporate massive investment in our own infrastructure with highly-skilled and experienced professional services teams. We are then capable of delivering best-in-class distributed application efficiency as a major benefit to our customers, thanks to our Cloud and Edge Computing Intelligent Network Platform.
"This is achieved by applying virtualization to a wider scope from the Edge up to the Cloud and by opening our infrastructure to our ecosystem of security and network partners to deliver SASE Services."
