Global enterprises are moving away from traditional hub-and-spoke WAN architectures because nearly 50% of all enterprise WAN traffic today is to and from the cloud. Breaking out Internet traffic at the branch (instead of backhauling it to a central location) has helped reduce latency, but it is still a challenge to ensure application performance and security at corporate locations. Enterprises need a cloud-native unified solution that integrates private connectivity, application acceleration and security without adding network complexity and costs.
Aryaka and Zscaler have partnered to deliver a solution that combines Aryaka’s global cloud-native private connectivity, with built in WAN Optimization, SD-WAN functionality and application acceleration capabilities — with Zscaler’s advanced cloud security platform.
While Aryaka’s SmartCONNECT delivers SLA-based reliable global connectivity and significantly faster application performance to enterprises, Zscaler adds a layer of advanced security controls needed for web and cloud bound traffic, such as threat protection, data protection and access control capabilities. The Aryaka Edge device (ANAP) can seamlessly forward all Internet and cloud bound traffic directly to the Zscaler cloud.
Further, since the combined solution is cloud-native, enterprises do not require additional on-premises hardware, appliances, or software for deployment. This results in a significant reduction in network complexity, costs and maintenance hassles at globally distributed branch offices.
The combined solution Aryaka’s Global SD-WAN and Zscaler’s Security as a Service platform allows enterprises to:
Aryaka offers the only viable SD-WAN solution for global enterprises. Aryaka’s global SD-WAN delivers significantly better performance for cloud and on-premises applications — voice, video and data — for enterprise data centers, branch offices and remote/mobile employees anywhere in the world.
Unlike legacy connectivity solutions that take months to deploy, Aryaka’s Global SD-WAN can be deployed within days. It is delivered as a service, so IT organizations can consume global networking services the way they would consume SaaS applications like Salesforce and Infrastructure-as-a-Service solutions like Amazon Web Services and Azure. With more than 800 global enterprise customers, Aryaka is also the largest independent global SD-WAN provider by market share.
