Aryaka's Expanded SD-WAN and SASE Offerings Bring

Aryaka, the leader in Unified SASE solutions, today announced enhanced SD-WAN and SASE offerings specifically designed to meet the needs of small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). With entry pricing of under $150/site, Aryaka delivers a more comprehensive set of managed service capabilities compared to alternatives including application optimization, network security, multi-cloud connectivity, and cloud-based observability and control, all supported by lifecycle services management. Aryaka's world-class managed service experience - trusted by large enterprises and Fortune 100 companies worldwide for over a decade – is now tailored to SMEs, so they no longer must choose between affordability, performance, and ease of use when adopting SD-WAN and SASE solutions.

SMEs face several challenges when it comes to networking and security, including limited budgets, a lack of skilled IT resources, and a need for operational simplicity. Based on its global private backbone, Aryaka's solutions offer an industry-unique approach to networking and security that is cost-effective, resilient, and easy to manage, helping SMEs as they increasingly adopt managed services. Aryaka combines its in-house technology with a global managed service, eliminating the vendor-provider finger-pointing that can negatively impact business outcomes.

"As a customer-centric business, Aryaka both understands the specific networking and security challenges that enterprises of all sizes face and actively takes steps to deliver products and services that address those challenges," said Dennis Monner, Chief Commercial Officer of Aryaka. "No matter if 10 or 10,000 users depend on Microsoft 365, Salesforce, or access workloads in a cloud to be productive and protected from security threats, one bad experience is one too many, and SMEs deserve a first-class service experience equal to large enterprises and multi-national companies while meeting their budgetary needs. Our revamped offerings bring our highly regarded agile deployment at an affordable price point to SMEs."

As a channel-led company, Aryaka empowers its partner community with its award-winning Aryaka Accelerate Partner Program. "Our tailored offerings provide a great revenue opportunity for our valued partners to expand into more markets and verticals", according to Craig Patterson, Aryaka SVP of Global Channel Sales. "We value the true revenue partnership we have and look forward to helping our partners to win the trust and business of SMEs globally with our revamped SD-WAN and SASE solutions. We strongly believe this is a win-win-win for SMEs, channel partners, and us."

The announcement comes on the heels of Aryaka's recent investment in its Hyperscale Point-of-Presence (PoP) footprint, the deployment of its innovative AppAssure solution across all current and new PoPs, and the enhancement of its Last Mile Services offering by supporting cellular connectivity worldwide.

Visit with us at the upcoming Enterprise Connect show, March 27-30 in Orlando, and the Channel Partners Expo, May 1-4 in Las Vegas, where Aryaka is the official SD-WAN and SASE technology sponsor.

Ali Tajskandar, Chairman and CEO of Wishpond, commented on the acquisition, "We are extremely happy to announce our first acquisition of the year and the sixth acquisition since going public in December of 2020. We've begun to look at new tuck-in acquisition opportunities once again, and we are really excited about adding ESM as it furthers our mission to help small businesses grow and succeed.

These functions consume a significant amount of time and attention from entrepreneurs who have a limited time and budget. Instead, for the low cost of a monthly subscription, ESM allows small business owners to spend their time on growing their business. Wishpond will retain ESM's brand, website, and client relationships while providing operational support and offering cross-selling opportunities. ESM is expected to be integrated with Wishpond's next-generation Propel IQ platform this year. Wishpond customers using Propel IQ's sales and marketing platform will then be able to provide contract signing, invoicing and access other CRM functionality from one single platform. Jordan Gutierrez, Chief Operating Officer of Wishpond, added "ESM is a natural fit for Wishpond's customers as it complements our existing sales and marketing software and solutions. This acquisition expands our product offering and allows Wishpond to serve a broader range of small business customers. Furthermore, this acquisition will create cross-selling opportunities for Wishpond as we can offer ESM's software to Wishpond's existing base of over 4,000 customers, increasing the value of our customer relationships. We expect this acquisition will result in higher customer retention and an increase in long-term customer value for Wishpond. We believe ESM allows Wishpond to provide the most complete solution on the market for small business to manage their sales, marketing, invoicing, and customer relationship efforts."
