“I am super excited to join a company that has both industry-leading technology and a long-term vision for leading the global SD-WAN market forward,” McGill told HRD.

“This powerful combination will enable us to transform our vision into reality by attracting and developing the best talent from around the world to achieve peak levels of teamwork, collaboration and operational excellence.”
