Cloud-based WAN as-a-Service Pioneer Recognized as a Visionary in Gartner’s 2015 Magic Quadrant for WAN Optimization for the Third Consecutive Year

Aryaka®, the leading WAN as-a-Service company, announced today that Gartner has recognized Aryaka as a Visionary in its 2015 “Magic Quadrant for WAN Optimization,” for the third time in a row (1).

When Aryaka was founded in 2009, the initial mission was simple: to help enterprises tackle globalization by providing business-grade global connectivity and accelerating their application traffic to employees, customers, and partners, regardless of their location. Today, the company and its technological capabilities have advanced to a stage where they are also helping businesses address far more complex use cases, such as mobility, accelerating application access to remote end users, and migrating workloads to public, private, and hybrid clouds.

Over the past year, Aryaka has continued to reshape the enterprise networking landscape by making significant enhancements to its Aryaka ONE network – the world’s first and only global, private, and optimized WAN delivered as a service. Aryaka also launched the world’s first CDN/ADN purpose-built for enterprise content and application delivery.

In addition to technological advancements, Aryaka has expanded its global footprint by adding Points of Presence in Tokyo, Johannesburg, Los Angeles, Miami, and Dubai.

The company continues to add leading global brands like AstraZeneca, Oxford Economics, Air China, Henny Penny, and Skullcandy to its already strong customer base, while maintaining the industry’s highest customer retention rate. Recently, Aryaka signed an ExpressRoute partnership with Microsoft Azure – enabling Azure customers to get optimized, private connectivity to their cloud instances.

In recognition of its customer-first approach, Aryaka received the Frost & Sullivan 2015 “Global Network Optimization Solutions Customer Value Leadership Award.” Aryaka also won TMC’s 2015 SDN Excellence Award, and has been recognized as a leader and industry shaper advancing SDN technologies.

“It feels great to be recognized as a Visionary in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for the third time in a row,” said Ajit Gupta, Founder & CEO of Aryaka. “Aryaka is achieving exponential growth by disrupting multi-billion dollar enterprise networking industries including MPLS, WAN Optimization, and CDN. We believe we are visionaries because we envisioned today’s WAN challenges – yesterday. And we built an on-demand business-class network that could address all of them. We are committed to transforming the way collaboration happens within the enterprise, and this is just the beginning!”
