NEW YORK CITY — AlefEdge partnered with NetFoundry to deliver secure networking and optimized routing at the application edge.  This collaboration, which brings together mobile networking, edge computing, and a rich set of application enablers, empowers developers to rapidly create and deliver secure applications for enterprises.  By integrating NetFoundry’s architecture into AlefEdge’s software-defined mobile edge (SD-ME) platform, enterprises have an innovative way to develop secure 5G-like applications.

“More and more enterprises are implementing remote work policies and are launching new applications that take advantage of the edge,” said Ganesh Sundaram, CEO and founder, AlefEdge. “Dangerous security threats have driven the need for edge-first secure routing approaches. Security is an integral part of our SD-ME solution.  NetFoundry’s ‘zero trust’ solution layer enables us to ensure the safety of data, reduction of data leakage, and protection from ongoing threats, especially in the routing layer.”

NetFoundry's zero trust network-as-a-service (NaaS) platform has no telecom carrier dependencies, so businesses realize cost savings and project acceleration. 

“Advances in Edge and 5G opens up opportunities for developers and enterprises, enabling them to programmatically control zero trust, low-latency networking,” said Galeal Zino, CEO, NetFoundry. “That eliminates barriers, such as VPNs, private APNs, and MPLS, enabling these developers and enterprises to deliver innovative edge applications. The Alef SD-ME user-friendly platform approach made it simple and powerful for NetFoundry to partner with AlefEdge to bring the next generation of edge innovation to the market.”
