What is the Aryaka SASE security solution?
The Aryaka managed SASE solution is deployed across Aryaka's global network of PoPs and combines orchestration, automation and monitoring workflows with access to the MyAryaka cloud portal to create a fully end-to-end solution. The solution is provided by Aryaka's acquisition of Secucloud, to create a globally deployed managed SASE solution. The offering includes: SD WAN, Private Access with Zero Trust, WAN Optimisation, Bandwidth Aggregation, Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) CDN, last mile services, Secure Web Gateway (SWG), Firewall as a Service (FWaaS), threat prevention and DNS. The solution connects all edges, including WAN, mobile, cloud and Internet of Things (IoT).
Because Aryaka's acquisition of Secucloud is a recent addition to the company's portfolio (confirmed as of May 2021, but not fully integrated until much later) some clients may still make use of their older SASE offering which relied on integrations from companies such as Palo Alto and Check Point. The deployments were mainly on-premises using firewalls hosted by Aryaka's service Edge nodes and managed by Aryaka's operations team.
Further, Aryaka's Private Access Solution was launched in December 2020. The offering is client-based and integrated into Aryaka's PoPs, allowing for quick deployment of products on a global scale, whilst leveraging features such as bandwidth pooling and bursting for added flexibility.
Aryaka SASE can be deployed in four different ways:
- Edge: Integrates next generation firewall as a virtual network function into ANAP service edge CPE.
- Cloud: Aryaka’s cloud deployment offering aids the adoption of SASE by connecting to cloud security platforms from technology partners such as Check Point, Palo Alto Networks, Zscaler and Symantec.
- VPN Acceleration: Improves the performance of existing VPN solutions.
- Hybrid Workplace Solution: Clients are offered Aryaka’s SmartSecure Private Access, which is a comprehensive VPN solution designed to support remote users and locations. This combines superior application performance with complete flexibility in bandwidth allocation, and leverages containerized VPN server instances in Aryaka service PoPs.
