Ten Years Strong

Aryaka has specialized in software-defined network connectivity and application delivery since it was founded in 2009, and the company is aging like fine wine—or like a Rolex, according to Aryaka CEO Matt Carter.

A lot has changed over the past decade, but some important things have stayed the same, according to Carter, including the fact that Aryaka is still a privately held company and has always been channel-led.

The San Mateo, Calif.-based company in May picked up $50 million in Series F funding led by Goldman Sachs Private Capital Investing, which is going toward expansion plans. Carter told CRN about the growth plans he has for the company, how it has been able to stand on its own and stay differentiated in the sea of SD-WAN newcomers and acquisitions, and why the channel is so important to Aryaka’s past and future success.

What follows are excerpts from CRN's conversation with Carter.
