The Aryaka SD-WAN uses a networking-as-a-service model and is co-managed by Aryaka and the customer. What separates Aryaka from other SD-WAN vendors is how it has traits of a service provider and a vendor at the same time.
As WANs become more complex and the enterprise perimeter dissolves, establishing an effective security posture becomes more complex. Be it the branch, the data center, remote workers or the cloud, each new on-ramp increases the attack surface.
SD-WAN (software-defined wide area network) at first glance appears to be an almost impossible chimera of “cheaper, faster and better” at connecting branch locations to each other and the central hub or headquarters.
Aryaka Networks and other privately held companies are among the startups to watch offering the software-defined networks, say Wall Street analysts. Count on them to be acquired or launch IPOs. Cisco rival Arista Networks (ANET) is among potential buyers. Other startups include Nuage Networks, Fatpipe Networks and Cato Networks.
Aryaka CEO Matt Carter said SD-WAN has changed drastically since the San Mateo, California-based vendor launched in 2009.
We’re a timeless classic—we’re like a Rolex watch. We’ve been around for a while but are still as relevant and innovative. The market has evolved, and it’s a great opportunity and great time for us to help our partners make money,’ says Aryaka CEO Matt Carter.
The latest IHS Markit report on the SD-WAN market found that VMware, Cisco, and Aryaka continued to dominate the space, though there was a shakeup outside the top three. Overall, the research firm observed a 23% sequential increase in appliances and control and management software sales.
When I was a network engineer for a VAR, I had the edge router thing solved. It didn’t take me any time to get a device up and running and working the way the customer wanted it to be done. On the other hand, dealing with the local provider for network access was a different story. I could probably write a book about all the crazy things I had to deal with when I was on hold with the local telco or when I was lost in the process of the large providers just hoping that someone remembered to schedule techs to be on-site this week.
Our open approach to multi-layered security delivers on the choice that enterprises prefer and partners with cloud security leaders for easy integration.
Global Convergence, Inc. (GCI), a global Managed IT Lifecycle services and solutions company, today announced that it is now authorized to offer its extensive customer base, Aryaka’s Global Software Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) solutions within the US, EMEA, APAC and LATAM.
The Aryaka hybrid WAN is expected to help the vendor sell more to customers that have found its global SD-WAN too expensive for connecting sites in one geographical location.
Aryaka’s SmartConnect SD-WAN has achieved “Integrated with Oracle Cloud” status and is now available in the Oracle Cloud Marketplace.
