Aerohive® Recognized as the Second Largest Cloud-Managed Wireless LAN Vendor

MILPITAS, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#AerohiveAerohive
Networks® (NYSE: HIVE)
, a leader in cloud-managed networking, today
announced it is named the second largest vendor in the Enterprise-class
Cloud-managed Wireless LAN (WLAN) market in the “Cloud Managed Wireless
LAN Services White Paper” published by the 650
, an independent market research firm focused on researching
data center, communications, and information technology markets. As one
of the pioneers of Cloud-managed WLAN, Aerohive continues to drive Enterprise
Networking innovation
at cloud-speed with several recent industry
firsts, including first family of Wi-Fi 6 access points, first pluggable
access point, and first with ISO27001 certification.

“Many other vendors have offered Cloud-managed WLAN but have not
displaced the two early players (Aerohive and Cisco-Meraki),” said Chris
DePuy, technology analyst, 650 Group. “We expect that Cloud-managed WLAN
services market growth will continue to exceed that of the rest of the
Enterprise-class WLAN market as more companies will adopt its use. There
are many reasons why more organizations will transition to Cloud-managed
services, including the fact that its use is broadening past the WLAN
infrastructure towards campus Ethernet switches, routers, firewalls, and

There are many advantages to using Aerohive’s Cloud-managed WLAN
services and over time, small to large enterprises will take complete
advantage of these services to further simplify their business models
and gain operational efficiencies that come from Artificial Intelligence
(AI) and Machine Learning (ML). Retail, finance, and healthcare are
great examples of verticals that are quickly adopting Cloud-managed WLAN
services, and with time, we expect many, if not all verticals will adopt
Cloud-managed widely.

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning capabilities are being
brought to the enterprise network at a rapid rate, and many such
capabilities are being managed, deployed, and powered by the cloud.
Cloud-managed WLAN services are among the first such services to take
advantage of AI and ML. Today, AI and ML are being used to help deploy,
manage, secure, and troubleshoot networks and client devices, which is
becoming more critical as IoT devices are becoming a growing portion of
connected devices.

“Aerohive pioneered Cloud network management, specifically designing the
Enterprise-class HiveManager network management architecture for the
Cloud,” said David Flynn, chief executive officer, Aerohive Networks.
“Our industry-leading 3rd generation Cloud platform
drastically reduces operational complexity and cost for our customers
and partners. It’s great to be recognized as one of the two leading
vendors in the Cloud-Managed WLAN market for our innovative and
intelligent network management system.”
