MILPITAS, CA--(Sep 8, 2011) - Aryaka, provider of the world's first cloud-based WAN optimization and application acceleration solution, has been named to VentureWire's FASTech 50 list of the most innovative technology start-ups. The editors of Dow Jones VentureWire and a board of leading venture capitalists selected Aryaka from hundreds of venture-backed companies and thousands of nominations.

As part of the FASTech 50, Aryaka Founder and CEO Ajit Gupta will give an overview of Aryaka and discuss disruptive cloud technologies at the Dow Jones FASTech conference, Nov. 8-9 in Redwood City, California.

"Venture capitalists are always searching for start-ups that are developing truly original technology with the potential to transform the marketplace," said Scott Austin, editor of Dow Jones VentureWire. "The FASTech 50 cuts through the clutter of me-too start-ups to highlight companies developing the most innovative and investment-worthy technologies."

The VentureWire FASTech 50 is an annual list of the most investment-worthy technology start-ups as selected by a board of leading venture capitalists and the editors of Dow Jones VentureWire. This year's theme was innovation. To be eligible for the list, a company must be based in the U.S., venture-backed and have launched a product within the last three years that breaks from conventional methods, introduces a novel technology or markedly advances an existing product or service.

"It is a privilege to receive this honor," said Ajit Gupta, Aryaka Founder and CEO. "We are thrilled to have the recognition of Dow Jones and VentureWire. The entire Aryaka team deserves credit for helping make our cloud-based WAN optimization a new and better way for enterprises to connect their international teams for improved communication and collaboration."
