Second, Aryaka’s Zero Trust WAN traverses Aryaka’s global private network backbone operating in more than 100 countries. Third, Aryaka’s Comprehensive Networking, Security and Observability Services included the new Aryaka SmartSecure next-generation firewall (NGFW) with secure web gateway (SWG), anti-malware and intrusion prevention system (IPS). Finally, Aryaka’s Flexible Delivery empowers businesses to choose their preferred approach to delivery, be it though Aryaka or a third-party and implementation, be it managed, co-managed or self-managed.

Aryaka’s services are designed to modernize enterprises of any size, enabling them to defy convention and future-proof their businesses. The company’s customer base is comprised of hundreds of global enterprises, including several in the Fortune 100.

Aryaka adopts a win together mentality with their customers, aligning business outcomes so that customer wins are Aryaka’s wins. This strategy begins with dynamic engagement, helping Aryaka gain a better understanding of customer needs and how they change. This leads to a higher-level customer experience, which is where Aryaka’s unique approach shines through versus against traditional telco providers.

In 2023, a Total Economic Impact Report conducted by Forrester Consulting found that Aryka delivered a 113% ROI and $2.48M in net present value over the course of three years. Additionally, the study found a 45% reduction in effort from NetOps to manage WAN services and the sunsetting of preexisting multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) circuits to SD-WAN saved companies $2.2 million
