Aryaka®, the #1 end-to-end managed SD-WAN provider, today introduced HybridWAN to the company’s Global Managed SD-WAN Service. HybridWAN extends Aryaka’s Global Managed SD-WAN solution to sites where a combination of Aryaka’s Layer 2 core connectivity and Aryaka-managed internet connectivity will 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 resulting in a lower TCO.
“For enterprises undergoing digital transformation, Aryaka’s new capabilities further ease SD-WAN adoption by offering flexible WAN connectivity and security options,” said Lee Doyle, Principal Analyst at Doyle Research. “A managed SD-WAN offering that integrates connectivity, security, application optimization and multi-cloud access helps shield the enterprise from operational complexity and increase their WAN transformation ROI.”
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.
“Teradyne is a global electronic test and industrial automation company, so collaboration among our global engineers is critical and relies heavily on the WAN,” said John DeBella, director of infrastructure management at Teradyne. “Before Aryaka’s HybridWAN offering, we were using multiple technologies and spending a huge amount of time prioritizing critical traffic. With HybridWAN, we’ve been able to consolidate, centralize and simplify our network and have even more flexibility to prioritize our most critical traffic.”
Zone-Based Firewalls & Multi-tenancy
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.
“Aryaka has been at the forefront of these two trends, offering the first truly global managed SD-WAN Service,” said Shashi Kiran, CMO of Aryaka. “We’re now enhancing this even further with additional flexibility and choice, but not at the expense of added complexity, such as when an enterprise must manage different WAN providers and technologies or a traditional MPLS service where direct cloud connectivity takes extra effort.”

Aryaka HybridWAN will be generally available by the end of calendar Q4 2019, with Zones and micro-segmentation available by the end of calendar Q3 2019.
