SD-WAN Consolidation

Futuriom predicted the acquisition of CloudGenix in 2019.  They (and we) believe that 2020 and 2021 are key years for consolidation in the SD-WAN market.  They are slightly more bold predicting that the key smaller players including Aryaka, Cato Networks, FatPipe, Silverpear, and Versa are likely to be M&A targets. They believe one or more of these organizations could also IPO.
