Edge platform for securing and delivering digital experiences, Akamai announced that the company has acquired Asavie, whose global platform manages the security, performance, and access policies for mobile and internet-connected devices. Akamai will add Asavie‘s mobile, IoT, and security solutions to its Security and Personalization Services product line. Asavie provides secure, frictionless access to business resources for a fully mobile workforce and also automates self-serve, private, network-based services creation.
Office anywhere environments
Asavie, headquartered in Dublin, automates services that secure access from mobile and internet-connected devices to applications and data without requiring installation and client software management. It is well-suited for regulated verticals, such as healthcare, financial services, and education, which is transitioning to a secure ‘office anywhere’ environment as a result of the pandemic. Dr. Tom Leighton, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder, Akamai Technologies, said,
“We believe the addition of Asavie will help Akamai’s carrier partners address enterprise and mid-market customer demand for IoT and mobile device security and management services. What’s notable about the Asavie solution is that, as more IoT devices connect over cellular and 5G, it has been shown to be very easy to scale and protect them.”
