Aryaka Debuts as a "Strong Performer" in SD-WAN Services Report by Independent Research Firm

Aryaka, the Cloud-First WAN company delivering the #1 managed WAN/SD-WAN solution, announced today that the organization has been named a Strong Performer by Forrester Research in "The Forrester Wave: Software-Defined WAN Services, Q4 2020." Click here to download the complete report.

According to Aryaka's vendor profile in Forrester's evaluation, "Instead of offering a variety of SD-WAN hardware and software platforms from multiple companies, Aryaka has blazed its own trail and created a highly integrated, seamless portal and service, based on its own technology, for its customers. Customers logging into MyAryaka cloud portal get a single view into a user-friendly interface with a rich set of information, such as application performance, SLA verification, and configuration management. Aryaka's services offerings include security (SmartSecure), application/WAN optimization (SmartOptimize), and direct multi-cloud connectivity (SmartCloud). Customers seeking a company with a pedigree in optimizing applications and delivering a refined SDWAN solution should put Aryaka on their shortlists."

"We're proud to be included in the Forrester WAVE report. It is great to see Forrester acknowledge us as a company that has blazed its own trail to create a highly integrated offering, that sets a new bar for customer experiences," said Shashi Kiran, CMO at Aryaka. "For us, it is all about getting rid of complexity for customers and becoming their easy button as they undertake WAN transformation initiatives and beget the best possible application performance. This allows us to be nimbler and more responsive compared to the rigidity of traditional Telco experience that most enterprises want to walk away from."

Aryaka is also included in the Forrester's Now Tech report. In this its authors say, "The SD-WAN services market is maturing rapidly, with a plethora of players across various geographies. The growth of edge computing and increased adoption of cloud and use cases, fueled by the drive to excel in customer experience, have shone a spotlight on the business-wide networking fabric. SD-WAN is an integral part of the equation."

Unlike traditional Telcos and MSPs, Aryaka combines the benefits of a technology vendor and a fully managed provider in order to drive the agility, responsiveness and visibility that are hard to come by in a stitched together environment. The benefits to this approach include greater operational simplicity, higher responsiveness and lower total cost of ownership.
