Aryaka, the software-defined wide area networking (SD-WAN provider), has introduced a security platform and “ecosystem.”
The vendor has partnered with Radware, Palo Alto Networks and Zscaler to provide “industrial-grade security measures.” The platform attempts to use the different security partners to fit the variety of customer use cases. The features include DDoS attack prevention from Radware, DNS filtering and cloud sandbox from Zscaler, and “next-generation firewalls” from Palo Alto.
Security has become one of biggest sources of confusion and concern for customers and partners adopting SD-WAN. While vendors like Cato Networks have touted a built-in security platform, many providers focused on technology partnerships.
Aryaka said its private network already has an “essential level of security” and has built-in security on its edge devices.
“In today’s cloud-centric world, global organizations are looking to SD-WAN to deliver solutions that offer reliable global connectivity, fast and consistent application performance anywhere in the world, and enhanced network visibility in an environment that assures the highest level of enterprise-grade security,” said Gary Sevounts, chief marketing officer at Aryaka. “Working closely with industry leaders like Palo Alto Networks, Zscaler, and Radware, Aryaka delivers a platform with unified, best-of-breed global SD-WAN and security solutions that are affordable and accessible to all global enterprises.”
Aryaka had already partnered with Radware and Zscaler. It announced the partnership with Radware in February and December.
Punit Minocha, Zscaler’s senior vice president of business and corporate development, said cloud has transformed the approach of business toward security and networking. That approach no longer has the data center as the “de facto destination.”
“We are proud to be working with Aryaka on a solution that supports enterprise-class connectivity and provides the performance, security and agility needed in today’s cloud-first world,” Minocha said.
Aryaka has been one of the big newsmakers in the last year. It went on a string of executive hires who have experience with IPO launches.
