EfficientIP Ranked as Outperformer in 2023 GigaOM Radar for DDI Solutions.

The need for robust, scalable, and innovative DDI solutions has never been more critical as networks grow increasingly complex. The 2023 GigaOm Radar for DDI provides crucial guidance for enterprises searching for the right DNS, DHCP, and IPAM solutions.

We’re proud to announce the report ranks EfficientIP as a Leader and Outperformer, positioning us as one of the top three DDI providers. In this blog, we’ll cover the significance of this ranking, delve into the nuances of the report, and explore why EfficientIP’s SOLIDserver™ solution is the linchpin for modern network management and security.

The GigaOm Radar report: what it is and why it matters

This year is the second annual GigaOm Radar for DDI, offering an exhaustive evaluation of DDI vendors that goes far beyond mere rankings. This report employs an evaluation matrix that scrutinizes vendors based on a range of criteria. Most fields mark vendors as exceptional, capable, limited, or not applicable, with scores displayed across easily read grids.

The report serves as a roadmap for success, equipping IT teams with actionable insights for aligning with their business objectives and technological needs. Whether you are an enterprise looking to overhaul your existing DDI infrastructure or a startup seeking to implement a solution from scratch, the Radar provides the clarity and direction needed to make the right choices.

A closer look at EfficientIP’s ranking and value proposition

This ranking is a strong endorsement of our SOLIDserver™ DDI solution’s unique all-in-one technology, which is highly scalable, open, robust, and cost-effective.

These factors have become increasingly valuable as network infrastructure becomes more complicated. According to IDC’s European multicloud surveys, around 85% of organizations operate hybrid cloud environments while 67% run multicloud environments, whose adoption will continue to rise. 

This is where a solid DDI solution is essential for managing the challenges that come with this model.

With this in mind, flexibility is a key factor, and the report assesses three main DDI delivery models – integrated, overlay, and managed DDI. We were one of only five vendors to tick all three boxes.

Further, we were also marked as exceptional in several areas of market segments and deployment models, and capable in all others. This includes our performance in the network service provider (NSP) and large enterprise market segments, as well as our capabilities in on-prem software and virtual delivery and private and public cloud.

In other key criteria, GigaOm called us out as exceptional in integrated security, automation & orchestration, and support for API and IPv6. The report also highlighted our solution’s availability, flexibility, interoperability, and manageability, and we were among the few to be marked as exceptional for Zero Trust capabilities. 

The Zero Trust security model, which implements a risk-based approach to network access based on the principle “trust nothing, verify everything,” has become a central strategy for securing complex IT environments. Leading market analysts such as Gartner consistently place Zero Trust as a key priority.

To meet these latest market needs, our solution is designed to be more than just a DDI service provider. It’s a comprehensive network management and security platform that addresses multiple challenges. From ensuring robust security frameworks to facilitating seamless network automation and cloud integration, the solution is built to be a cornerstone in your IT infrastructure.

The strength of EfficientIP’s all-in-one approach

We aim to empower IT teams to view, connect, automate, control, and secure their infrastructures – whether on-prem, multi-cloud, or hybrid—from a unified, consistent, centralized management interface.

This integrated model is increasingly valuable for organizations looking to optimize their IT spending and management resources. IT investments continue to climb, but businesses need to make every penny count with the economic downturn.

GigaOm highlighted the strength of our unified, streamlined approach, stating:

“Simplifying architectures and reducing the number of servers, EfficientIP’s all-in-one appliances offer layered functionality automatically deployed and managed via EfficientIP’s embedded SmartArchitecture templates as a system rather than a collection of individual entities, unifying management of multivendor DNS/DHCP services. A unified API-first approach and consistent UI across all products offers single-pane-of-glass management with holistic search capabilities, increasing usability and enhancing the user experience.”

Numerous case studies highlight the value of these capabilities, demonstrating how organizations in industries from retail and manufacturing to telcos and higher education have leveraged our solution.

Our edge over the competition

Our ranking as a Leader and Outperformer sets us apart in a market teeming with DDI solutions. But how do we stack up against other big names in the field? Our competitive edge is multi-faceted and rooted in our commitment to innovation and adaptability.

The report noted that other market leaders were held back by more costly solutions coupled with rigid architecture or lacked seamless integration for key functions like DNS security. EfficientIP’s cost-effectiveness in deploying optimized, reliable, and scalable DDI architectures resolving complexity was remarked upon.

Our competitive positioning is not just about outperforming other vendors; it’s about offering a more holistic, innovative, and flexible solution that caters to a wide array of market segments and deployment models. Whether you are a small business or a large enterprise, our DDI solutions are designed to meet your specific needs, offering scalability and customisation that many competitors can’t match.

Why choose EfficientIP? The key market drivers

The need for end-to-end support covering on-premise and multi-cloud architectures is paramount today. According to the recent EMA report on DDI, hybrid cloud, network automation, and multi-cloud migration are the top initiatives pushing IT organizations to invest in DDI solutions. EfficientIP’s SOLIDserver™ solution perfectly aligns with these key market drivers and requirements as well as Zero Trust security frameworks and DNS/DHCP overlay delivery models. Our platform offers a unified, feature-rich, and highly customizable approach to managing these diverse and often fragmented network architectures.

Our solution is not just about technology but solving real-world challenges. Whether it’s the need for seamless network automation or the growing demand for proactive security in an era of increasing cyber threats, EfficientIP is ahead of the curve. Focusing on innovation and adaptability allows us to meet the needs of organizations looking to future-proof their network infrastructures.
