Also Ranks in Top 3 Marketshare in Latest IHS-Markit SD-WAN Report

SAN MATEO, Calif. and LONDON –  24 October 2019. Aryaka®, the #1 end-to-end managed SD-WAN provider, today announced it has been selected as the winner in the Products and Solutions category at the Network Transformation Awards 2019, the industry’s premier awards recognising achievement in the network transformation space. Aryaka’s solution was selected among three shortlisted vendors in the SD-WAN subcategory. The announcement was made on October 16th, in the iconic Grand Hotel Amrâth Kurhaus in The Hague, Netherlands alongside SDN NFV World Congress.

Shashi Kiran, Chief Marketing and Product Officer of Aryaka, said: “This recognition from our peers within the industry is an honour we are pleased to accept, and echoes Aryaka’s commitment to offering its customers a consistently excellent and timely solution. Aryaka has been at the forefront of key trends in the networking space since its inception, and, having achieved important milestones in this year alone, I am delighted to see our efforts and results recognised in these important awards.”

The Network Transformation Awards are made with the highest credibility and integrity, with a judging panel comprised from the industry’s foremost analysts working in the SDN, NFV and Automation domains. The honour highlights winners’ leadership and achievement in the sector. Previous years’ honorees include Huawei, VMWare, and ZTE.

The award acknowledges Aryaka’s work in delivering a global managed SD-WAN service that integrates connectivity, the cloud, security, and application acceleration in a OPEX-driven cloud consumption model. Recent Aryaka wins in EMEA include Coats, HMSHost, and TÜV Rhineland.

In parallel news, IHS Markit has released their latest SD-WAN market size report, with Aryaka in 3rd place, just behind VMware and Cisco.  In contrast to the two, Aryaka is in a unique position as both an SD-WAN technology and managed service provider. The report captured a 23% growth for SD-WAN during 2019 Q2 on the back of large enterprise deployments and router replacements.

“In our discussions with vendors, it has become apparent that most recognize SD-WAN as a mainstream technology,” said Josh Bancroft, senior research analyst at IHS Markit. “As a result, larger enterprises have begun to refresh their legacy, router-centric WANs with SD-WAN. Vendors are capitalizing on the refresh opportunities with customers that have large bases of aging router equipment.”
