Aryaka SmartConnect

It integrates nicely with AWS (in regions other than China). The provisioning support is pretty good.

Cons

Aryaka SmartConnect

  • Very expensive for what you get
  • Not much advance notification for maintenance events
  • Unclear if Aryaka connectivity into China meets Chinese M.I.I.T. laws
Jeff Stockamp | TrustRadius Reviewer

Versa SASE

  • Versa does not provide a backbone, it has the ability to interconnect gateways through private backbones within Azure, AWS, and Equinix. Remote Browser Isolation, Network Sandbox, and CASB are in beta.

Alternatives Considered

Aryaka SmartConnect

We didn't really evaluate many other SDWAN providers as very few operate inside of China. Our alternative was to build VPN connectivity ourselves.
Jeff Stockamp | TrustRadius Reviewer

Versa SASE

They securely connect an organization's users to applications, from branch offices to clouds anywhere in the world. It constantly protects and monitors customer digital assets to proactively detect and respond to threats.
