Edge orchestration provider Avassa has teamed up with authorisation specialist Axiomatics to bring efficient authorisation solutions to edge environments.

The two companies have developed a solution that allows organisations to implement a zero-trust philosophy to their edge networks without the complexities of managing a large number of devices.

Combining Avassa’s edge orchestration solutions with Axiomatics’ attribute-based access control (ABAC) platform, the partnership claims to seamlessly unify security across cloud and edge environments.

Babak Sadighi, co-founder and head of strategy at Axiomatics, said: “Managing and orchestrating authorisation solutions at the edge are commonly seen in industries such as retail, banking, hospitality, healthcare, and property tech.”

“Together with Avassa, Axiomatics provides an authorisation solution that is a critical part of any Zero Trust initiative and can be automated just as if it would have run in a centralised cloud environment.”

Avassa’s edge orchestration platform gives businesses the tools to securely manage the lifecycles of their edge applications. The company was recently named one of the four Gartner Cool Vendors in the edge industry for 2022.

Axiomatics is known for delivering runtime authorisation through ABAC for applications, data, and other services. Its platform empowers enterprises to share sensitive data and assets between authorised users in a secure environment.

Carl Moberg, CTO and co-founder of Avassa, said: “The way enterprises take on building their next-generation edge solutions is rapidly moving away from proprietary application stacks towards a platform approach based on open technologies.”

“As enterprises stretch their application footprints into the distributed domain and begin to scale, automating the full application lifecycle including authorisation and access control becomes a critical capability for application teams,” he added.

In August, Avassa partnered with security software provider Cysec to help users run edge applications on the company’s secure operating systems.
