Aryaka unveils multi-layered security platform Passport

SD-WAN provider Aryaka rolled out a new platform, called Passport, providing its customers with as many as six layers of security. The added layers of security come from Aryaka’s security partners, including Palo Alto Networks, Radware and Zscaler.

The security layers that make up Passport provide protection against different threats. Radware’s Hybrid Cloud Attack Mitigation, for example, helps deter DDoS attacks. Its edge devices also include built-in security next-generation firewalls from Palo Alto Networks. It provides integrated security from Palo Alto Networks for virtual firewalls hosted in AWS and Microsoft Azure as well. Additionally, Passport includes a layer of cloud security for non-critical traffic that traverses across the web through partnerships with Palo Alto Networks and Zscaler.

“In today’s cloud-centric world, global organizations are looking to SD-WAN to deliver solutions that offer reliable global connectivity, fast and consistent application performance anywhere in the world, and enhanced network visibility in an environment that assures the highest level of enterprise-grade security,” said Gary Sevounts, chief marketing officer at Aryaka, in a statement. “Working closely with industry leaders like Palo Alto Networks, Zscaler, and Radware, Aryaka delivers a platform with unified, best-of-breed global SD-WAN and security solutions that are affordable and accessible to all global enterprises.”

Passport is the result of previous efforts Aryaka has had with third-party security vendors. In January, for example, the company said it was working with Zscaler to deliver a joint SD-WAN cloud-security offering. Then in February, Aryaka said it was collaborating with Radware to implement DDoS attack detection and mitigation for its global enterprise services.

Having multiple layers of security from multiple security vendors is beneficial in that it provides additional protection in the event of any issues with an individual layer. Having multiple layers from a single vendor, by contrast, poses the risk of infecting all of the layers in the event that something goes awry with the core technology.

“The cloud has caused enterprises to rethink traditional approaches to network and security solutions in a world where the data center is no longer the de facto destination,” said Punit Minocha, Zscaler SVP of business and corporate development. “We are proud to be working with Aryaka on a solution that supports enterprise-class connectivity and provides the performance, security, and agility needed in today’s cloud-first world.”
