TBI announced that Aryaka Networks has joined its supplier portfolio, allowing the technology services distributor to leverage Aryaka's unified secure access service edge and managed SD-WAN platforms, SDxCentral reports. Aryaka is currently working toward a zero-trust WAN by recently adding a secure web gateway-as-a-service feature, complementing its firewall-as-a-service, SWG, zero-trust network access and cloud access security broker, fulfilling the SASE architecture requirements and enabling the company's inclusion into Dell Oro Groups list of unified SASE platforms. TBI Solution Engineer Justin Foxwood says digital transformation has become a focus among enterprises as they shifted to remote work. This task can be very overwhelming when dealing with disparate networking and security technologies, as they tend to spread IT and security teams thin trying to manage all the different interfaces and lack of visibility across platforms, Foxwood said. SASE ensures secure private network connections similar to traditional VPNs while allowing for continuous scanning of network traffic and enabling the creation of encrypted tunnels to the closest SASE point-of-presence, using any type of device, according to Foxwood.
