SD-WAN specialist Aryaka is partnering with Zscaler, a provider of cloud security, to deliver cloud-native private connectivity and security in a unified solution, available via channel partners.
The Aryaka edge device (ANAP) that enables SD-WAN can forward all internet and cloud bound traffic directly to the Zscaler cloud. Thus, the bundle secures all enterprise cloud and internet traffic using comprehensive threat prevention (advanced threat protection, cloud sandbox, anti-virus and DNS security), data protection (data loss prevention, cloud access security broker and file type controls), and access control (next-generation cloud firewall, URL filtering, bandwidth control and DNS filtering).
“With the rapid proliferation of cloud services and SaaS applications, internet-based SD-WAN solutions fall short of meeting application performance expectations and security needs of globally distributed enterprises. This results in significant business execution challenges,” said Gary Sevounts, chief marketing officer of Aryaka. “We’re excited to partner with Zscaler to deliver a unified, best-of-breed global SD-WAN and cloud security solution to enterprises worldwide so they can benefit from fast and secure access to both cloud-based and on-premises mission-critical applications, while reducing network costs and complexity.”
Punit Minocha, Zscaler senior vice president of business and corporate development added, “The cloud has caused enterprises to rethink traditional approaches to network and security solutions in a world where the data center is no longer the de facto destination. A globally distributed workforce should have fast and secure and unfettered access to the cloud, and we are proud to be working with Aryaka on a solution that supports enterprise-class connectivity and enables wider adoption of local internet breakouts, providing the performance, security, and agility needed in today’s cloud-first world.”
