Aryaka adds HybridWAN to global SD-WAN service
Aryaka has introduced HybridWAN to the company’s global managed SD-WAN service.
The new offering extends Aryakas global managed SD-WAN solution to sites where paired with Aryaka’s Layer 2 core connectivity and Aryaka-managed internet connectivity will provide a more flexible experience.
“For enterprises undergoing digital transformation, Aryaka’s new capabilities further ease SD-WAN adoption by offering flexible WAN connectivity and security options,” said Lee Doyle, principal analyst at Doyle Research. “A managed SD-WAN offering that integrates connectivity, security, application optimisation and multi-cloud access helps shield the enterprise from operational complexity and increase their WAN transformation ROI.”
The core option delivers resliant performance for business-critical traffic, while the internet option offers cost-effective transport for non-critical traffic, creating an ‘internet-first’ paradigm for enterprise connectivity that tracks the ‘cloud-first’ paradigm for applications. This also helps enterprises consolidate their branch appliances resulting in a lower TCO.
“Teradyne is a global electronic test and industrial automation company, so collaboration among our global engineers is critical and relies heavily on the WAN,” added John DeBella, director of infrastructure management at Teradyne. “Before Aryaka’s HybridWAN offering, we were using multiple technologies and spending a huge amount of time prioritising critical traffic. With HybridWAN, we’ve been able to consolidate, centralise and simplify our network and have even more flexibility to prioritise our most critical traffic.”
Aryaka’s HybridWAN is combined with two innovations to help secure SD-WAN adoption; zone-based firewall capabilities and micro-segmentation in support of multi-tenancy. These innovations are made possible by the Aryaka service, which integrates edge intelligence, security, application optimisation and visibility to deliver a seamless HybridWAN experience to the enterprise. Zones extend Aryaka’s existing north-south access firewall to east-west, such as separating employee, DMZ and external LANs. Micro-segmentation then extends this partitioning, either within a single enterprise or as part of a multi-tenant branch, across the SD-WAN.
“Aryaka has been at the forefront of these two trends, offering the first truly global managed SD-WAN Service,” continued Shashi Kiran, CMO of Aryaka. “We’re now enhancing this even further with additional flexibility and choice, but not at the expense of added complexity, such as when an enterprise must manage different WAN providers and technologies or a traditional MPLS service where direct cloud connectivity takes extra effort.”
