How Aryaka Makes an Impact on the Remote and Mobile Workforce
Recently, 451 Research, took a look at Aryaka’s SmartACCESS, the first clientless SD-WAN for the remote and mobile workforce, and offered its take on the solution.
Optimizing Application Performance over VPN
Remote access has, historically, been a nightmare for enterprise end users and IT teams, especially in global deployments. Support tickets over connection complaints are a regular occurrence, as remote users attempt to access their mission- and business-critical applications and information, and shadow IT grows as mobile users attempt to circumvent connectivity issues to maintain productivity.
While the SD-WAN market “remains hot,” per 451, solutions at the edge are only a small part of a working application acceleration solution sought by tier one service providers and enterprises alike. The public Internet remains a poor substitute for an enterprise-grade private network, as it is prone to latency, packet loss, and jitter – especially in global deployments, where information must travel across continents and oceans.
MPLS providers attempt to cobble together a working solution by combining disparate pieces – SD-WAN from one vendor, WAN Optimization from another – but so far have not implemented a working solution that noticeably improves application performance for end users, while taking the strain off of IT teams.
With a crowded playing field, where potential competitors are still scrambling to find solutions that address remote access and VPN application performance, the IT networking space has yet to find a solution that fully solves enterprise pain points. According to 451, Aryaka’s solution addresses the issues that “enterprises and telcos alike face in trying to stitch together a global high-performance, low-cost cloud network,” while remaining “well differentiated from other SD-WAN vendors.”
Aryaka’s SmartACCESS is clientless, meaning that there is no additional software needed. This allows IT to maintain their existing security policies. It utilizes SD-WAN and WAN-Optimization, as well as dynamic CDN, to improve application performance – but it does so over a purpose-built, enterprise-grade global private network, with POPs located within 30ms of 95% of the world’s business users. This way, end users access their information via the cloud while retaining the performance of a private network.
