Making SD-WAN and SASE Easy for Channel Partners and Enterprises

We all consume more information from more sources and spend more time online than ever. Did you know that the average Internet user aged 16 to 64 spends six hours and 58 minutes online per day across all devices? A report titled “DIGITAL 2022 – Global Overview” offers insights into digital trends across media, devices, and platforms. In our industry, add to this the many announcements by vendors, providers, and new buzzwords and technologies, and things can become complex – fast.

Making the complex easy and simple is  – hard. Aryaka has always strived to help our customers and channel partners with this. The Aryaka Accelerate Channel program does just that, and CRN agrees with us and gives it a 5-Star Rating.

Enabling our partners in the same way – easy and simple to understand our as-a-service SD-WAN and SASE offerings and for enterprises to consume and buy our services and spend less time doing so, we recently launched several updates. I will cover them in this blog.

Training and Certification

We refreshed our entry-level course Aryaka Certified Partner (ACP-2022). It is a streamlined, easy-to-consume course. Just like our services are easy to consume. Aryaka Partners can sign up here and take the online course at their own pace. It consists of seven modules to help partners get a solid and foundational understanding of Aryaka’s SD-WAN and SASE solutions and target markets/customers.

Next quarter, we will follow up with a new Aryaka Certified Engineer (ACE-2022) course, covering in-depth how we address enterprises’ challenges with our solutions. The ACE is for our partners’ Solution Architects and Sales Engineers.

Hear from Our Partners and find the Right Partner for You

We refreshed and gave our partner web page a significant overhaul. It is now easier than ever for prospective partners to quickly understand the benefits of the Aryaka Accelerate channel program and to hear directly from our partners like Planet One and Intelysis why they are excited about the program.

The Wire Wire Series highlights partners outlining partner success and why they win with Aryaka.

No wonder Craig has recently been named the 2022 Circle of Excellence Award Winner by Channel Futures.

We also made it simple for enterprises to look up who our partners are in each region to find their preferred partners with an easy-to-navigate page layout. Check it out after you finish reading this blog post.

Online Marketplaces

As more commerce happens online, including B2B transactions, just like our services are flexible and offer choice – we provide flexible choices of how to buy our services. We’re expanding our presence to online marketplaces as an option for enterprises that prefer this buying option. For starters, you can find us now on the AppSmart Marketplace and the Ingram Micro CloudBlue Fast-Track Program. Expect more to come in the future.

Gartner Partner Finder

If you are a Gartner client, you can find and connect with us via Gartner’s Partner Finder Tool. From their article: Gartner’s Partner Finder is an exclusive tool designed to help tech CEOs grow indirect channel business as a route to market. Search for Aryaka and find us there if you prefer this route.

Channel-led and customer-first – Making Things Easy

It all comes back to making things and life easier for networking and security IT professionals and our partners to accelerate business success and solve problems. As one of our partners says:

“Today’s global organizations can’t afford the applications they’re adopting and the business process they have in place, to not be running at peak performance…Our clients have been absolutely blown away when they realize their existing infrastructure and hardware isn’t a factor. Aryaka’s solution is easy to implement, and it can be up and running quickly. The solution sells itself.”

Let us help you accelerate your journey to an SD-WAN and SASE cloud-first architecture and benefit from our as-a-Service solutions.
