Akamai Technologies advances 5G Security Strategy with acquisition of Asavie

Digital TransformationMobileTop Stories

Akamai Technologies, an intelligent edge platform for securing and delivering digital experiences, has announced that it has acquired Asavie, whose global platform manages the security, performance and access policies for mobile and Internet-connected devices. Asavie’s mobile, IoT (Internet of Things) and security solutions will become part of Akamai’s Security and Personalisation Services (SPS) product line sold to carrier partners that embed the solution within the technology bundle sold to their subscribers.

Asavie delivers secure, frictionless access to business resources for a fully mobile workforce. The company automates the creation of self-serve, private, network-based services that secure access from mobile and Internet-connected devices to applications and data without requiring installation and management of client software. This clientless architecture is particularly well-suited for regulated verticals, such as healthcare, financial services and education. Many of these industries are transitioning to a secure ‘office anywhere’ environment as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and benefit from a rapidly installable, scalable and cloud-managed solution.

“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,” said Dr Tom Leighton, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder, Akamai Technologies. “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.”
