SHI will offer WiteSand’s full suite of cloud-delivered services to help its customers manage multi-vendor networks and bring brownfield networks to a cloud state, supported by AI/ML and end user experience data to ensure a seamless transition without requiring any complex hardware forklifts.

SHI’s more than 5,000 experts help its customers select, deploy, and manage industry-leading technology solutions from a strategic partner network, complemented with a growing portfolio of SHI consultancy and managed services.

WiteSand’s solutions are designed to simplify and secure the provisioning, deployment, and operations of existing enterprise campus networks.

WiteSand is a cloud-native, multi-tenant solution that provides asset discovery, network access control (NAC), wired and wireless provisioning, monitoring, and flow analytics.

As a vendor and platform agnostic solution, it will support SHI’s customers’ existing hardware, bringing networking to the cloud without costly hardware replacements and adding network security with zero trust network access.

WiteSand makes it easy to manage global networks, across offices, campuses, retail, clinics, factories, and any other site.

“We are thrilled to partner with SHI not only because it is an $11 billion global leader, but because of its expertise in implementing SaaS solutions across its customers’ IT environments,” said Sean Stanton, vice president of sales, WiteSand. “Many organizations have already faced costly forklifts due to vendor lock-in, which is now further compounded by supply chain logistics issues.
