Aryaka is Recognized in 2020 Gartner Peer Insights ‘Voice of the Customer’: WAN Edge Infrastructure

With 4.8 Out of 5 Stars, Aryaka is One of Five “Customers’ Choice” Companies Named

San Mateo, Calif. – April 28, 2020 – Aryaka, the cloud-first WAN company and the only fully managed end-to-end SD-WAN provider, today announced the company has been recognized in the Gartner Peer Insights ‘Voice of the Customer’: WAN Edge Infrastructure (April 2020). Aryaka was also recently included in the Gartner Competitive Landscape: Managed SD-WAN Services* that profiled a handful of vendors out of the 100+ that Gartner identified.

“We would like to thank our customers for these great reviews and the confidence they have posed in us. Aryaka is both an SD-WAN technology vendor and a fully managed end-to-end WAN provider, delivering Cloud-First WANs. This unique combination allows us to deliver a great customer experience that is reflected in these stellar scores as opposed to customer reviews for traditional box-based SD-WAN solutions or Telco providers,” said Shashi Kiran, CMO at Aryaka.

To be named a ‘Customers’ Choice’ for 2020, a vendor needed to have 50 or more eligible reviews and an average of 4.6 or above out of 5 stars.

Customer Review Quotes

Customers reviewed Aryaka for evaluation and contracting, service and support, integration and deployment and product capabilities.

“Aryaka has been a great partner to work with. We struggled with putting our global WAN together due to both the costs and availability of private circuits in many parts of the world. Aryaka's solution allowed us to finally connect every global location on one network while saving the company a significant amount of money. The deployment was very easy.” Infrastructure Architect in the manufacturing industry.

“We have used Aryaka for over three years and have always had a great experience. Setup, deployment, post-deployment support has all been top notch. Moves and changes are quick and easy, and their support team is second to none. My account team is always available for general questions and escalations if needed and truly understand our business and how to help us grow.” Global Network Infrastructure Manager in the finance industry.

“Our overall experience with Aryaka over the past three years has been nothing but satisfying. We converted from MPLS to SDWAN to efficiently support our global enterprise communications and operations. Added benefit included reducing our monthly run rate and support costs. Aryaka helped us make the transition painless with no connectivity down time to our internal customers.” Director of IT Infrastructure in the transportation industry.

In December, Aryaka announced it was the only managed SD-WAN vendor and end-to-end provider to be positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Visionaries quadrant of the 2019 Gartner Magic Quadrant for WAN Edge Infrastructure. Among the evaluation criteria to be included in that report included an organization’s ability to execute and its completeness of vision.

Aryaka’s managed SD-WAN service delivers the flexibility, operational simplicity, and scalability required by CIOs in the current dynamic environment.  Aryaka’s customers, as we believe is reflected in our Gartner Peer Insights feedback, are aligned in their view that by going with Aryaka, they have one less thing – the WAN - to worry about.

“Many managed service providers offer managed SD-WAN, and they are good at what they do. And, many vendors develop SD-WAN technology, and likewise, are good at what they do, but they must fulfill either through a service provider or sell directly to enterprise IT as part of a do-it-yourself model. Aryaka is the only company to cross over both domains. There’s no need to settle for either/or when you can have both,” Kiran concluded.
