Aryaka Networks Named a Finalist for CRN's 2022 Tech Innovator Award

SAN MATEO, Calif. – November 14, 2022 – Aryaka®, the leader in Unified SASE solutions,  announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has chosen Aryaka as a Finalist for the 2022 CRN Tech Innovator Awards. Aryaka is recognized for its Unified Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) with SD-WAN solution in the SD-WAN category.

CRN’s annual award program celebrates innovative vendors in the IT channel across 38 technology categories in critical business areas ranging from cloud and storage to networking and security. CRN editors selected this year’s winners based on a review of hundreds of vendor products using multiple criteria, including key capabilities, uniqueness, technological ingenuity, and best fit with customer and solution provider needs.

“We’re honored to be a finalist for the 2022 CRN Tech Innovator Awards by CRN,” said Craig Patterson, Channel Chief and Senior Vice President of Global Channels at Aryaka. “Our product and solutions engineering teams have worked diligently to create a true Unified SASE and SD-WAN solution that delivers networking and security as a global cloud-based managed service. Aryaka Accelerate partners can rest assured their customers are getting a world-class secure networking solution.”

Dell’Oro Group recognizes Aryaka as one of only four vendors currently providing a Unified SASE solution. Aryaka’s unified SASE and SD-WAN solution offers businesses cloud-based managed security and network connectivity services with round-the-clock customer service and tech support.

In October 2022, Aryaka launched the industry’s first Zero-Trust WAN based on its Unified SASE and SD-WAN architecture. The service gives channel partners an opportunity to move up the value chain and drive new revenue by being first to market with an all-in-one networking and security service that will help companies modernize their legacy infrastructure and simplify operations. Aryaka’s Zero Trust WAN also is delivered as a managed service with commission/margin and co-management options for channel partners and MSPs.

“Our CRN Tech Innovator Awards recognize those technology vendors that are making the biggest impacts in digital transformation for solutions providers with unique, cutting-edge products and services,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “It is my pleasure to congratulate each and every one of our 2022 CRN Tech Innovator Award winners. We’re delighted to recognize these best-in-class vendors that are driving transformation and innovation in the IT space.”
