Aryaka was founded in 2009 by Ajit Gupta, Ashwath Nagaraj, and Rajeev Bharadhwaj. While the company had intended to go public in 2019, those plans have since been put on hold.
Aryaka is a software-defined wide-area network (SD-WAN) developer. This technology helps enterprises manage long-distance connections within their network—between a headquarters and a branch office, for example. In 2021, Aryaka acquired Secucloud, a global, cloud-based IT security provider. Aryaka has raised more than $180 million in venture capital funding from investors including Goldman Sachs, Trinity Ventures, Third Point Ventures, Presidio Ventures, and Nexus Venture Partners. The company did not disclose valuation figures following a $50 million fundraise in 2019, though a 2018 round led analysts to estimate a valuation of $274 million.
These comments should not be interpreted to mean that the company is formally pursuing or foregoing an IPO.
