SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Aruba Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ:ARUN) today announced the execution of a definitive agreement to purchase privately-held Avenda Systems, 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.

“This acquisition is fundamentally about arming our customers with a simple, cost-effective and device-agnostic approach to connecting and securing BYOD users”

“This acquisition is fundamentally about arming our customers with a simple, cost-effective and device-agnostic approach to connecting and securing BYOD users,” said Hitesh Sheth, chief operating officer at Aruba. “Legacy networking vendors have struggled to deliver a purpose-built solution for today’s mobility age. Faced with the BYOD phenomenon, IT departments need to deliver policy and control to a wide range of mobile devices and PCs over their existing networks. Together, Aruba and Avenda are poised to deliver the ideal answer.”
