Wifi solution provider, Ruckus Wireless has acquired Cloudpath Networks, a privately held provider of secure Wi-Fi onboarding software. Headquartered in Westminster, Colorado, Cloudpath pioneered secure Wi-Fi onboarding in 2006 and has since become a leader in certificate-based Wi-Fi security with its automated, self-service software. With this, Ruckus said that it will immediately include Cloudpath software with its Smart Wi-Fi portfolio for education, enterprise, retail and hospitality markets.

Cloudpath has been strong in the education market, given the need for schools to easily and securely manage an ever-changing array of users and devices. Cloudpath was also first in the industry to support Chromebook devices, helping schools securely integrate that fast-growing platform into their classrooms. Enterprises and retailers likewise use Cloudpath to apply distinct access policies based on user, role and device for employees, guests, contractors and vendors.

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

Selina Lo, Ruckus’ chief executive officer
This is a significant leap forward in simplifying Wi-Fi security for both BYOD and IT devices. We believe that Cloudpath has the easiest-to-use and most secure onboarding solution on the market, and we’re excited to embrace their technology and talented team as part of the Ruckus family.
