Spark Integration Technologies Is Now Distrix

New Identity Reflects Company's Far-Reaching Success of Distrix Network Virtualization Software in Enhancing Infrastructures

VANCOUVER, B.C.--()--Distrix, a leading developer of software-defined WAN products enabling simple, secure and resilient networks, today announced its name change to Distrix, from Spark Integration Technologies. The new name reflects the company's success in deploying its flagship Distrix® secure gateway router across a broad range of industries worldwide.

“Our broad customer base – from transportation to banking, from telecommunication to industrial control – has come to recognize the Distrix name as synonymous with networks made simple, secure and scalable, resulting in lower network-management costs,” said Jay Friedman, president of Distrix. “Identifying ourselves more closely with the Distrix name reflects our solution’s simplicity and its growing importance within public and private networks, and the Internet of Things.

“Optimizing capital and operating expenses, while tackling constant security threats, is a mandate of today’s network infrastructures, and vendors providing solutions for such optimization need to clearly define themselves in the market. Having our corporate name reflect the highly visible, well-established Distrix software brings cohesiveness to our solutions and market identity.”

Distrix is a software-defined networking (SDN)-based, hardware-independent solution delivering next-generation local- and wide-area-network connectivity for simple, secure and resilient communications in remote and cloud-based applications, while minimizing network infrastructures’ capital and operating expenses as they scale and grow. The award-winning Distrix solution enables IT and OT professionals to refine, rather than replace, their network infrastructures by delivering on-demand network connectivity necessary for modern networking, including machine-to-machine (m2M) communication and the Internet of Things (IoT). The recently introduced Version 4 of the Distrix solution enables organizations to further extend and scale their existing remote connectivity, and deliver dynamic, real-time, on-demand networks.
