Ruckus acquires Cloudpath Networks

Ruckus Wireless has acquired Cloudpath Networks, a privately held provider of secure Wi-Fi onboarding software, headquartered in Westminster, Colo. Ruckus will immediately include Cloudpath software with its smart Wi-Fi portfolio for education, enterprise, retail, and hospitality markets.

Cloudpath's software provides a common entry point to securely onboard all new devices. The one-time enrollment process verifies the user and the device and automatically configures the device with the appropriate wireless network and certificate for the desired policy. Returning users connect automatically to the secure network with the appropriate policies, including virtual LANs and access control lists – all of which are applied dynamically. Cloudpath's proprietary technology makes it easy for IT to manage ongoing Wi-Fi access in large and ever-changing environments.

For IT managers, Cloudpath offers a Set-It-And-Forget-It Wi-Fi experience that enables IT security and bring your own device (BYOD) policies to be deployed in a scalable, user-friendly manner. Cloudpath's flagship Enrollment system enables networks to simply and securely adopt certificate-based Wi-Fi, eliminating the IT support costs and user frustration associated with passwords.
