Traditional Networks Fail to Make the Cut

Global enterprises are moving away from traditional hub-and-spoke WAN architectures because greater than 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.

Secure SD-WAN

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 Network Access Point (ANAP) can seamlessly forward all Internet and cloud bound traffic directly to the Zscaler cloud, in addition to integrating North-South access security, East-West site security, and multi-tenancy supported by Layer 3 micro-segmentation (aka VRFs).

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.
