Aryaka has added HybridWAN to its global managed SD-WAN service.
HybridWAN extends Aryaka’s global managed SD-WAN solution to sites where a combination of company’s Layer 2 core connectivity and managed internet connectivity can provide a more flexible experience. The Aryaka core option offers guaranteed performance for business-critical traffic, while the internet option offers cost-effective transport for non-priority traffic, an “internet-first” paradigm for enterprise connectivity that tracks the “cloud-first” paradigm for applications. This also helps enterprises consolidate their branch appliances, potentially resulting in a lower TCO.
According to Aryaka, the enterprise WAN has evolved from leased lines and other legacy technologies such as MPLS to a true hybrid infrastructure that combines the best of multiple options. At the same time, as WANs become more complex, outsourcing has become a major factor, where the enterprise focuses on their core business while leveraging the public cloud and managed services. Today’s announcement paves the way for accelerated SD-WAN adoption by these enterprises as the market hits its stride.
Aryaka’s HybridWAN is combined with two additional 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 richness and flexibility of the Aryaka service, which integrates edge intelligence, security, application optimization 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.
