Networking company Aryaka is building onto its zero trust WAN offerings with the inclusion of Secure Web Gateway and Firewall-as-a-Service, an integration the company says is the first that allows enterprises to easily enforce security policies across offices and remote users with unified control, performance and stability.
According to San Mateo, Calif.-based Aryaka, the company’s zero trust WAN is based on a unified secure access service edge (SASE) architecture designed to help IT leaders transform the enterprise while defending against relentless cyberattacks by converging networking and security in an all-in-one service.
The company says the solution can also help organizations that have adopted a hybrid work policy, as the unified SASE approach delivers security, connectivity and flexibility enterprises need to adapt.
“Today’s CIO is asked to not only transform the enterprise but do it while battling a relentless cyber threat, and all with even less people and resources,” says Dennis Monner, chief commercial officer of Aryaka. “It’s an incredible challenge that can’t be solved with legacy carrier connectivity and point security products.”
The approach includes a collaboration and commitment to trusted advisors and partners, as well as focusing on simplicity and a cloud-first strategy, the company says.
Aryaka says its Secure Web Gateway is a defense for Site-to-Internet and User-to-Internet traffic, and it protects against web and internet-based attacks.
Combined with its Firewall-as-a-Service, Aryaka says it ensures customers have flexible perimeter security for distributed users, devices, and applications that provides benefits such as:
- Improved patch and update readiness
- Reduced operational complexity
- Correlated view across events
- Reduced vendor portfolio
- Reduced total cost of ownership (TCO)
- Increased capital efficiency
“We attack the problem from a completely unique perspective,” says Renuka Nadkarni, Aryaka’s chief product officer. “By truly integrating security into our global, software-defined network and delivering it as a service, we enable enterprises to instantly ‘turn-on’ a SASE architecture that was built in, and for, the cloud.”
