Masergy Acquisition Moves Comcast Business Into Elite Class of Managed Network Providers

Philadelphia, PA

Comcast Business today announced it has been recognized in the 2022 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Managed Network Services.

This marks the first time Comcast Business has been recognized in a Gartner Magic Quadrant and we believe it further validates the Company as a leading global provider of managed network solutions with strengths serving highly distributed enterprises across a variety of vertical markets.

The Gartner Magic Quadrant for Managed Network Services evaluates a service provider’s vision in the market and their ability to execute their services effectively against Gartner view of the market. As enterprises seek to balance cost optimization, agility and performance, the Gartner Magic Quadrant provides insights for navigating the expanding managed network services market.

We believe, Comcast Business’ inclusion on the Gartner Magic Quadrant provides hard-earned validation that Comcast Business is a global solutions provider for managed network services. The acquisition of Masergy has enabled the company to quickly become a provider of global secure connectivity and intelligent networking services.

“Comcast Business Managed Network Solutions provide the foundation for fast, scalable, and secure always-on connectivity for the modern enterprise,” said Bob Victor, Senior Vice President, Customer Solutions, Comcast Business. “We are committed to investing in partnerships, services, technologies, and operations that scale to serve enterprises of all sizes.”

We believe this Gartner recognition validates Comcast Business’s vision and our ability to execute globally and reinforces the confidence enterprises feel in partnering with us for their local, national and global managed networking needs.
