Axway to acquire Dublin-based Vordel
Portfolio build out with data flow control to cloud and mobile
TechTrade | 09 Nov 2012 :
Business interaction networks company Axway has announced its intention to acquire Dublin-based Vordel, a provider of software technologies enabling enterprises to deliver application programming interfaces (API) for cloud and mobile.
Axway said that its acquisition of Vordel's API and identity capabilities will expand its managed file transfer (MFT), business to business (B2B) and integration heritage, providing customers with a single solution to own the enterprise edge, and govern flows of data that extend to cloud and mobile.
Vordel products enable enterprises to deliver APIs to cloud, mobile, and partners. The company's API Server is an enterprise-ready, unified API platform to manage, deliver and secure APIs. Global enterprises rely on such technologies to deploy mission-critical APIs and extend existing IT infrastructure to cope up with the rapid change in mobile and cloud computing technologies.
The move is part of Axway's ambitions to extend its core capabilities to the burgeoning cloud and mobile areas, where it says the Axway/Vordel suite of offerings will change the dynamic of the enterprise edge, extending to cloud integration, with mobile access to legacy data, and innovative identity solutions. Central policy management will provide end-to-end visibility, from Cloud to on-premises, from B2B to API and from legacy to mobile.
"By choosing the right approach to integration CIOs and Enterprise Architects can save their organisations money and help ensure the success of their integration projects across the enterprise and into the Cloud," Christophe Fabre, CEO, Axway. "Together Axway and Vordel align to enable that vision. The breadth of the combined Axway-Vordel platform will now provide companies with a single consolidated approach to their application and data integration needs-across on-premise and Cloud environments."
"I am delighted that Vordel is to become part of the Axway family," said Vic Morris, CEO, Vordel. "There is a natural synergy between the two companies, and our respective customers will benefit enormously from this combination of technologies. This is a new beginning for Vordel, and will ensure continued development and support of the Vordel API Server while also benefiting from the momentum that Axway will provide. As we move forward together, new Axway products will be delivered which will incorporate the strengths of both the Axway and Vordel product suites and enable Axway to further enhance its position as a market leader."
