Aruba Completes Acquisition of Avenda Systems
Aruba Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ:ARUN) today announced it has completed its acquisition of privately-held Avenda Systems. Avenda Systems is a leading developer of network security solutions that securely connect users and their personal mobile devices to business networks. These solutions facilitate development and enforcement of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) initiatives in the workplace.
Avenda’s solutions will enhance Aruba’s Mobile Virtual Enterprise (MOVE) architecture, making it simpler and safer for enterprises to transition to a new era of mobile computing and cloud-based applications. Avenda also enables self-service provisioning of 802.1x and security credentials to a broad range of devices running iOS, Android, MacOS, or Windows. This enables users to quickly and securely connect a new mobile device to the network without engaging IT helpdesk resources. Avenda delivers these solutions locally or as a cloud-based subscription service.
With the close of the acquisition, Avenda Systems employees join Aruba at its campuses in Sunnyvale, California and Bangalore, India.
