Security software provider Cysec and Avassa, an edge orchestration platform provider, have partnered to offer automated, scalable, and secure solutions for edge computing environments.

As enterprises increasingly look towards a hybrid adoption of both cloud and edge infrastructure, there is a growing need for businesses to stay innovative and efficient across both centralised and distributed environments.

With Cysec and Avassa’s joint partnership, the two companies plan to provide a secure and efficient solution for edge application management.

Carl Moberg, CTO at Avassa, said: “Enterprises are rapidly moving away from legacy edge computing toward treating their distributed locations as an extension of their cloud capabilities. Protecting applications and data in edge environments with limited or no perimeter security is rapidly becoming top-of-mind for decision-makers across several verticals.”

By combining Cysec’s deep hardware and OS-layer security capabilities with Avassa’s application-centric management, Moberg believes application teams will have the same level of automation and infrastructure security they know from central clouds at the edge.

The combination of a trusted OS with an edge application orchestration platform is beneficial across various industries, such as manufacturing, automotive, hospitality, and also retail.

Luca Gabella, VP of edge computing sales at Cysec, said: “In the retail industry, a massive amount of data is in use… and it is crucial for it to be protected while it is being processed. Arca Trusted OS is a really good fit for this security case-study as it brings hardware and OS hardened security layers into the process where it occurs, i.e. in the shops. Its combination with the agility of Avassa’s container deployment platform from cloud to edge offer a perfect match to run mission critical operations in multiple geographies.”
