​Ruckus takes huge Wi-Fi leap with new cloud acquisition

“This is a significant leap forward in simplifying Wi-Fi security for both bring your own device (BYOD) and IT devices."

Ruckus Wireless has acquired Cloudpath Networks, a privately held provider of secure Wi-Fi on-boarding software, headquartered in Westminster, Colorado.

Cloudpath pioneered secure Wi-Fi on-boarding in 2006 and has since become one of the key market leaders in certificate-based Wi-Fi security with its automated, self-service software.

Terms of the deal will see Ruckus “immediately include” Cloudpath software with its Smart Wi-Fi portfolio for education, enterprise, retail and hospitality markets.

With a growing reputation in the education market, Cloudpath was also first in the industry to support Chromebook devices, helping schools securely integrate that fast-growing platform into their classrooms.

“This is a significant leap forward in simplifying Wi-Fi security for both bring your own device (BYOD) and IT devices,” says Selina Lo, CEO, Ruckus Wireless.

“We believe that Cloudpath has the easiest-to-use and most secure on-boarding solution on the market, and we’re excited to embrace their technology and talented team as part of the Ruckus family.”

Lo says Cloudpath’s software provides a common entry point to securely onboard all new devices with the company’s proprietary technology designed to make it easier for IT to manage ongoing Wi-Fi access in large and ever-changing environments.

“Wi-Fi should be easy to use, and we’ve made that a hallmark for how we approach on-boarding and security,” adds Kevin Koster, founder and CEO, Cloudpath.

“Employees, guests and students should be able to get easy and secure access from their device of choice, and it should be equally simple for IT to comprehensively manage and secure that access without generating IT support calls when people try to connect.”

For IT managers, Koster says Cloudpath offers a Set-It-And-Forget-It Wi-Fi experience that enables IT security and BYOD policies to be deployed in a “scalable, user-friendly manner.”
