Dear Security and Networking Enthusiast,
Some real excitement on the APAC front, with SoftBank out of Japan selecting us as their preferred SD-WAN and SASE vendor for international services, which they refer to as SD-CORE(aryaka). This agreement was a long time in coming, will leverage Aryaka’s FlexCore, AppAssure, and SASE capabilities, and is further validation of Aryaka’s overall lifecycle services experience and application performance.
And, if you’ve visited our website over the past two weeks, you may have noticed some changes for the better. As the first stage of our brand evolution, we’ve refreshed the look-and-feel, navigation, and our corporate logo. Info on our services, use cases, and overall strategy should be easier to locate and absorb, including moves into the network security space.
Our friends at Futuriom have also published a new managed SASE survey where we’re covered, and we’ve been awarded a 5-star rating by CRN for our new Aryaka Accelerate channel program. Also on the channel front, Craig Patterson, our channel chief, has received recognition in the form of the Circle of Excellence award.
Futuriom SD-WAN and SASE Managed Services Survey
A just-published comprehensive survey covering SD-WAN and SASE adoption, the hybrid workplace, and managed services. One observation: Managed services will edge out DIY in SASE/SD-WAN deployments. Our research indicates that most end-users are looking for fully featured SASE and SD-WAN managed services that have co-management options, many security features, and some degree of automation.
Aryaka Captures CRN’s “5-Star” Rating for Partner Accelerate Program
CRN’s annual Partner Program Guide spotlights innovative technology vendors that work with partners to deliver services. Companies in the guide are scored based multiple components of the program including partner resources, training, support, marketing initiatives, and incentive programs. The 5-star rating is achieved by only select vendors demonstrating superior performance and partner collaboration.
New Paris PoP and New Partners
Aryaka’s new Paris PoP is a direct result of growing customer and market demand. With this deployment, many European CIOs and IT leaders will be able to make the required leap from MPLS to a multi-cloud environment, reducing total cost of ownership (TCO) without compromising application performance. New channel partners in the region include the system house SMTnet Data Communications from Mössingen in Baden-Württemberg, the virtual network operator mitcapsfrom Mainz and the French integration and managed services specialist Rampar from Paris.
“We have much better bandwidth for the end users now as we can choose any ISP locally to connect to the SD-WAN… users are much happier.”
