Evaluation Based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute

MILPITAS, Calif. May 1, 2013  Aryaka®, the leading provider of WAN Optimization as-a-Service, Network as-a-Service and Application Delivery as-a-Service solutions, announced today that it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Visionaries Quadrant of the 2013 Gartner Magic Quadrant for WAN Optimization Controllers.

Global businesses are turning to Aryaka for WAN optimization because it offers a fully managed service unlike traditional on-premise equipment. The platform’s multi-segment architecture and ability to deliver accelerated access to cloud services using an identical mechanism as site-to-site connectivity is one-of-its-kind in the marketplace. With built-in multi-tenant WAN optimization, monitoring, network visibility and 24X7 global support, the solution has evolved into an ideal option for the mid-market.  Furthermore, mid-market customers are able to tap into Aryaka’s reliable core network that is comprised of globally distributed points of presence (POPs).

Aryaka has made great strides over the past year, including the introduction of two more industry-changing solutions, Network as-a-Service and Application Delivery as-a-Service, last October. Aryaka’s Network as-a-Service provides organizations with an optimized private network with QoS for instant and reliable business connectivity, and Application Delivery as-a-Service enables distributed business users to quickly access centralized enterprise applications and cloud resources from anywhere in the world.

“We are honored to be positioned as a visionary in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for WAN Optimization Controllers. We believe this placement recognizes that our offering is innovatively moving the market forward,” said Ajit Gupta, president and CEO, Aryaka. “The WAN landscape is going through a major transformation, and based on the customer traction we have had to date, we believe that WAN Optimization-as-a-Service will grow by leaps and bounds over the next year and will continue to experience widespread industry adoption. Solutions like Aryaka will not only replace the traditional on-premise appliance model but will also expand the addressable market by providing a comprehensive solution for the underserved mid-market.”
