Aryaka Wins 2017 Red Herring Top 100 North America Award Jul 2017

Global SD-WAN provider lauded for company growth and innovation in enterprise connectivity

SAN MATEO, Calif., July 18, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Aryaka, the leading global SD-WAN provider, announced today that it has been selected as a winner of the 2017 Red Herring Top 100 North America, one of the industry’s most prestigious awards.

Since 1996, the Red Herring 100 lists have discovered and highlighted the most exciting private ventures from around the world. Every year, thousands of companies are reviewed in a rigorous three-step process that looks at all aspects of each organization, including but not limited to growth, quality of management, and present and future impact. Previous recipients have included Alibaba, Facebook, Google, Skype, Spotify and YouTube.

“This award is a testament to the technological gap we’re filling for the world’s top enterprises,” said Gary Sevounts, Aryaka’s Chief Marketing Officer. “Global organizations can no longer rely on the internet and legacy MPLS technology for branch and remote workforce connectivity, or to deploy today’s most effective enterprise applications. Aryaka stands alone in addressing these challenges, and our impressive customer base is reaping the rewards of our innovation in the form of reduced infrastructure and IT costs, coupled with unparalleled application performance and speed.”

Aryaka’s global SD-WAN solution, which is delivered as a fully managed service, provides a number of advantages over legacy MPLS technology, including faster application performance for both on-premises and cloud/SaaS applications, global deployment in days versus months, and up to 70 percent cost savings compared to MPLS.

“2017’s crop of Top 100 winners has been among our most intriguing yet,” said Alex Vieux, Publisher and Chairman of Red Herring. “North America has led the way in tech for so many years, and to see such unique, pioneering entrepreneurs and companies here in California, which is in many ways the heartland of the industry, has been a thrilling experience.”

“What has excited me most is to see so many people forging niches in high-tech and cutting edge sectors,” added Vieux. “Some of the technical wizardry and first-rate business models showcased here at the conference have been fantastic to learn about. We believe Aryaka embodies the drive, skill and passion on which tech thrives. Aryaka should be proud of its achievement - the competition was incredibly strong.”
