Aryaka, a provider of managed Cloud-First WAN and SASE solutions, has acquired Secucloud GmbH, a SASE platform provider, delivering network security from the cloud.
The deal closed in late April 2021.
Based in Hamburg, Germany, Secucloud offers an innovative platform designed to provide cloud-based firewall-as-a-service, secure web gateway with advanced threat protection capabilities. The platform is engineered to connect all edges including WAN, Cloud, Mobile and IoT securely together.
Research firm Gartner predicts that the Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) market will grow from $4.5 billion in 2021 to $10.9 billion in 2024, a 42 percent CAGR.
According to Aryaka’s 2021 State of the WAN report, which surveyed over 1,300 global enterprises, SASE deployment plans are accelerating, with 29 percent of enterprises stating that they are already deploying what they consider to be a SASE architecture.
Another 56 percent are planning to deploy a SASE architecture in the next 12-24 months, which speaks to the strong interest and momentum for SASE. Only 12 percent plan to rely on their security vendor to provide all WAN components.
“Secucloud brings a great team and proven, innovative technology that we can integrate with Aryaka’s Cloud-First, SD-WAN as-a-service,” said Ashwath Nagaraj, co-founder and CTO at Aryaka. “The combined technologies will allow us to offer truly converged network and network security as-a-service offerings.”
Aryaka said it expects new SASE products as a result of the Secucloud acquisition to be available later in the year.
