The recognized vendors meet or exceed both the market average Overall Rating and the market average User Interest and Adoption.

“We believe to be recognized for the third year in a row as a ‘Customer Choice’ alongside other recognized peers is a testament to the strength of our product and the world-class customer service we provide,” said David Ginsburg, vice president of product and solutions at Aryaka. “To us it is exceptionally difficult for a managed service provider to combine both technical and services excellence as part of an ‘all-in-one’ offer. That we are recognized in all three regions is also truly a point of pride, as we have been working diligently to provide the easiest-to-consume managed networking and security services, taking the complexity and risk out of enterprise connectivity. We are thrilled that our customers across the globe think so highly of us.”

95% of Customers Willing to Recommend Aryaka

Of the rating methodology, Gartner says, “In addition to the Overall Ratings, Gartner Peer Insights’ reviews also give insight into end users’ willingness to recommend each vendor. Willingness to recommend is a component of the ‘Voice of the Customer’ X-axis.” This year’s reviews spanned the 18-month period ending December 31, 2021.

Aryaka Once Again a ‘Customer Choice’ Across All Regions
“Vendors placed in the upper-right quadrant of the ‘Voice of the Customer’ quadrants are recognized with the Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice distinction.

“With the addition last year of a number of Points of Presence in the APAC and EMEA regions, Aryaka has made aggressive growth a top priority,” said Matt Carter, CEO of Aryaka. “More importantly, however, is our round-the-clock customer service and tech support. As a fully managed, cloud-based service provider spanning both security and networking, Aryaka takes the responsibility for all aspects of enterprise network management for our clients, making their IT and connection headaches disappear.”
