Aryaka, a SASE solutions expert, has announced the next evolution of its Zero Trust WAN with the inclusion of Secure Web Gateway and Firewall-as-a-Service.

The integration is the first to enable enterprises to enforce security policies across offices and remote users with unified control while delivering application performance and stability.

Dennis Monner, Chief Commercial Officer of Aryaka, says, "Today's CIO is asked to not only transform the enterprise but do it while battling a relentless cyber threat, and all with even less people and resources. It's an incredible challenge that can't be solved with legacy carrier connectivity and point security products."

Aryaka helps CIOs modernise their infrastructure and simplify operations by converging networking and security in an all-in-one service. In today's distributed world where applications are everywhere and employees can be anywhere, this unified SASE approach provides enterprises the security, connectivity, and flexibility they need to rapidly adapt to an unpredictable future.

Renuka Nadkarni, Aryaka Chief Product Officer, says, "We attack the problem from a completely unique perspective. By truly integrating security into our global, software-defined network and delivering it as a service, we enable enterprises to instantly turn-on a SASE architecture that was built in, and for, the cloud."

Drew Lydecker, President of Avant says, “Integral to the approach is Aryaka's collaboration and commitment to trusted advisors and partners around the world. One of the best parts of working with Aryaka is their incredible focus on the customer. How they integrated Secure Web Gateway into their unified SASE solution speaks volumes to their commitment to simplifying and securing IT operations for the modern enterprise.”

According to the company, core to Aryaka's success has been the relentless focus on simplicity for a cloud-first world. The company aims to meet enterprises wherever they are on this journey, helping them to move from a legacy architecture to a modern, software-defined WAN built for the cloud.

The integration of security into this architecture provides unmatched performance while reducing risk from network handoffs, operational complexity, poor patch management and a host of other real-world challenges.

Chris Rodriguez, Security and Trust Research Director at IDC, comments, "Zero trust network access is an emerging security technology but enterprises are often acquiring it through point products. Convergence is the logical evolution as threats continue to target multiple channels.

Aryaka's Secure Web Gateway is a defence for Site-to-Internet and User-to-Internet traffic, providing protection for web and internet-based attacks. Combined with its Firewall-as-a-Service, Aryaka ensures customers have flexible perimeter security for distributed users, devices, and applications that provides benefits such as the following:

  • Improved patch and update readiness
  • Reduced operational complexity
  • Correlated view across events
  • Reduced vendor portfolio
  • Reduced total cost of ownership (TCO)
  • Increased capital efficiency

Richard Delisser, SVP of Cloud and Infrastructure Technology at World Fuel, a longtime Aryaka customer says, “World Fuel is a cloud first company, so we’re 100% behind Aryaka's Zero-Trust WAN roadmap to converge network and security into one Unified SASE offering. Combined with Aryaka's cloud-managed services delivery, it provides us with the ability to innovate securely at the pace of a startup."

Aryaka is a supplier of fully managed SD-WAN and Unified SASE solutions and the first to deliver a Zero Trust WAN based on a Unified SASE architecture.

The company is focused on meeting customers where they are to help them overcome their network and security challenges. Aryaka's flexible architecture and all-in-one service are designed to modernise enterprises of any size, enabling them to move past convention and future-proof their businesses.
