Award is Reserved for the Customers and Vendors Willing to Push the Envelope of Performance, Reliability and Innovation

San Mateo, CA. – February 11, 2020 – Aryaka®, the Cloud-First WAN company delivering the #1 managed SD-WAN solution, announced today Aryaka customer World Fuel Services has won the 2020 SD-WAN Implementation Award from INTERNET TELEPHONY for their successful SD-WAN deployment. In December 2019, Aryaka announced World Fuel Services had selected Aryaka’s managed SD-WAN for the company’s digital transformation initiative.

Winners were selected by the INTERNET TELEPHONY editorial team based on the effectiveness and success of their SD-WAN implementations and will be honored at this year’s SD-WAN Expo on February 13 at the Greater Ft. Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center in Ft. Lauderdale.

World Fuel Services is a Fortune 100 global enterprise that markets, sells and distributes aviation, marine and land fuel to its clients in more than 8,000 locations in 200+ countries globally. In 2019, the company put out an RFP to a number of SD-WAN providers looking for a solution that could provide a unified architecture across their business locations to deliver traditional and cloud-based services like Office 365, Box, Slack and Zoom. During their evaluation, World Fuel Services wanted to see cost efficiencies, last mile management, low latency access to multiple cloud services, and the ability to accommodate all of their diverse global locations.

Aryaka was the only vendor who met all of their technical requirements, while also being a strong cultural fit.

“Since I first started tracking Aryaka over a decade ago, I have been impressed with their vision, technology and execution,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO at TMC. “From customers to investors, Aryaka has attracted the top tier and is helping to lead the way in not only SD-WAN but digital transformation.”

“We are incredibly proud to win this award with World Fuel Services and want to thank INTERNET TELEPHONY for this honor,” said Shashi Kiran, CMO at Aryaka. “We were thrilled when World Fuel Services chose Aryaka as their preferred vendor last year. The company has a rich vision that is aligned with a cloud-first strategy that includes a huge focus on operational simplicity across their diverse global locations. We’re pleased to play our part in helping deliver that and accelerate their WAN transformation initiatives.”
