Dear Security and Networking Enthusiast,
A bunch of news as we head into summer, starting with a great regional win in the US. Many think of Aryaka as only handling hard-to-serve sites, but this proves otherwise, so read more! We’re also pleased to announce our new CTO, Srini Addepalli, who brings to the table deep technical depth spanning security, the cloud, and everything in-between. Also some exciting news on the channel front, and we have received some great recent coverage as we play an increasing role in SASE conversations.
Aryaka’s Latest Win: Proven Regional Deployment vs Telcos and Box Vendors
If you think Aryaka is only for hard-to-reach locations in far off lands, guess again! We’re that, and much more, as we begin to check off customer wins within a country or even a sub-region with an offer that meets both performance and budget. The latest is a well known brand in the pet supply retail space, with hundreds of locations spread out across the United States. Competition was fierce, and two elements of the win were exceptional UCaaS performance and connectivity into Azure.
Aryaka Welcomes new CTO, Srini Addepalli
Please join us in welcoming Srini as our new CTO. He will be responsible for our overall SASE platform architecture and innovation, and most recently hails from Intel where he focused on SASE, edge computing, open source, and multi-cloud orchestration. He is ideally placed to help us deliver on our vision of offering a truly integrated networking and security offer.
Watch Aryaka’s Q2 2022 Partner Update webinar where we shared results of the 2022 State of the WAN (SOTW) report that surveyed 1600+ IT professionals to understand priorities, plans and challenges for SD-WAN and SASE success. The webinar also featured current and upcoming Partner contests and incentives, enhancements to our award-winning Aryaka Accelerate Partner Program, and increased focus on Partner collaboration and operational effectiveness to support our growing Partner community.

Here you can also request access to our online Aryaka Certified Partner (ACP) self-paced training module where you will gain a full understanding of our products and solutions, key differentiators, and the suite of services and support we offer.
As a follow-up to last month’s blog on convergence, Sean details how finance and procurement teams can enable network modernization and cost reduction in an inflationary, cost conscience budget season. Some sage recommendations for all of us.
Topics top-of-mind in enterprise networking include the migration to a SASE architecture as well as the current economic climate. Renuka Nadkarni , our Chief Product Officer, in the Network Computing article “The Secure Service Edge (SSE) is Broken: Here’s the Fix,” details how the SSE, in separating the network component from the Secure Access Service Edge (SASE), defeats the core premise of the integrated application-centric approach to serve applications anywhere for users anywhere. And, Dennis Monner, our Chief Commercial Officer, looks at inflationary trends and the need for convergence in Fast Mode’s “It’s Time to Recession-Proof Your Network and Security Architecture.”
