Aryaka Adds Lifeboat to Distribution Network
Aside from the need for a robust international network to support next gen SD-WAN services, a rich network of partners is equally as integral. Building out a strong partner community and leveraging the channel to the hilt is a strong step toward market leadership.
Aryaka and Lifeboat distribution announced a new partnership today to enable one of the world’s premiere distributors of business continuity, virtualization and security solutions to offer Aryaka (News - Alert) managed SD-WAN.
"Aryaka's unparallel user experience is a pleasant surprise within the industry. They offer a combination of the world's best global network, security, WAN optimization, and multi-cloud networking. Aryaka is a welcomed addition to our solutions inventory," noted Dale Foster, Chief Executive Officer, Lifeboat Distribution.
Specifically speaking, Lifeboat is able to add value to its portfolio with the introduction of the SmartServices platform to better support digital transformation efforts. With the Aryaka platform in tow end users can take advantage of one of the world’s most responsive networks.
“We are convinced our new distribution partnership with Lifeboat will present new opportunities for Aryaka, as well for VAR's and MSP's in this segment of the market," explained Karen Freitag, Chief Revenue Officer at Aryaka Networks.
SD-WAN is hot, but managed SD-WAN is scorching. Digital transformation is a global phenomenon. With the 5G reality right around the corner and the general cloud or bust business mentality, SD-WAN vendors are licking their chops for the bounty ahead.
