Aryaka VP of Sales, Marketing and Alliances Sonal Puri Recognized by CRN as One of the Top Women of the Channel

MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 27, 2013) - Aryaka®, the leading provider of WAN Optimization as-a-Service, Network as-a-Service and Application Delivery as-a-Service today announced that Sonal Puri, vice president, sales, marketing and alliances, has been recognized by UBM Tech Channel's CRN as one of the top Women of the Channel. CRN's annual list recognizes nearly 300 female executives across vendor channel organizations, distributors and solution providers for their accomplishments over the past year, and the far-reaching impact they are having on the technology industry going forward. This year's Women of the Channel were chosen by the editors of CRN based on their achievements as executives and the amount of influence they wield over the technology channel. These women represent a changing trend in a traditionally male dominated industry.

Under her leadership, Puri has helped to grow Aryaka's customer base by 416 percent, and has significantly increased the company's global presence via its channel program. In fact, Aryaka recently announced it has expanded its Fusion partner program in Asia Pacific with the addition of South Korea's ONSE Telecom. The Fusion program offers service providers a unique opportunity to capitalize on globalization trends as well as the movement of certain business applications to the cloud by offering Aryaka's easy-to-adopt cloud networking solutions in combination with cloud or managed hosting.

"We honor and congratulate this list of influential women who are dedicated to supporting the mission of the channel," said Robert Faletra, CEO, UBM Tech Channel. "For years, we have identified and celebrated the women who have made an indelible mark on the technology industry through unmatched innovation and razor focus on meeting the needs of the IT channel community."

"Sonal has been essential to Aryaka's growth and success," said Ajit Gupta, president and CEO of Aryaka. "Her hard work has led to the enormous adoption of our products worldwide, positioning us to disrupt networking as we know it. The company would not be where it is today without Sonal, and her ability to drive key business elements will have a direct impact on the future of Aryaka."

A special feature of the Women of the Channel is in the June issue of CRN magazine and expanded coverage of The 100 Most Powerful Women of the Channel will be featured online at
