Cradlepoint Announces 5G SASE Strategy for Cellular and Hybrid WAN Security

globenewswire | July 14, 2023

Cradlepoint, the global leader in cloud-delivered LTE and 5G wireless network edge solutions, today announced its phased rollout strategy for the industry’s first 5G-optimised Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) solution designed for the enterprise and purpose-built for Wireless Wide Area Network (WAN) deployments. With unique cellular capabilities and the simplicity of Cradlepoint’s cloud-based management platform, NetCloud Manager, Cradlepoint 5G SASE features zero trust, cellular intelligence along with cloud and SIM-based security to address the challenges and threats faced by today’s extended enterprise. As enterprises evolve beyond fixed sites to include mobile and IoT, they are looking to the flexibility and agility of Wireless WAN and 5G. These geographically dispersed networks, combined with the proliferation of connected devices and ill-fitting network security solutions, can significantly increase security vulnerability. With IoT device deployments projected to reach 30 billion by 2027, and the perennial IT talent shortage, the seamless integration of 5G-centric SASE solutions to manage Wireless WAN infrastructure is critical. As an industry leader in Wireless WANs and with the recent acquisition of Ericom, Cradlepoint is uniquely positioned to deliver a comprehensive 5G-optimised SASE solution that enables organisations to seamlessly match the security challenges of extended networks. Cradlepoint 5G SASE will be delivered in phases over the next 12 months: Cradlepoint Cellular Intelligence: Available today, cellular telemetries, such as signal strength and data plan usage, can be leveraged for SD-WAN traffic steering. As 5G StandAlone (SA) networks become mainstream, Cradlepoint’s network slicing capabilities will work with carriers’ services to offer prioritisation and slice-based isolation. SIM-based Security: Cradlepoint offers SIM management and GPS tracking to secure the physical devices and to detect rogue movement. Cradlepoint’s vision for the future is to work with carriers for tighter SIM-based security using SIMs as the basis for authentication, regardless of the connecting hardware. Connect-and-Go Zero Trust Security: Creating WANs in just a few clicks, 5G SASE replaces complex VPNs. Zero trust shrinks the lateral attack surface—devices connected to a Cradlepoint router are immediately dark to the outside world and other sites. Soon, this capability will be delivered from the cloud, offering an easier deployment option. Cloud-Delivered Security: Ericom’s full suite of SSE solutions, including SWG, CASB, RBI and DLP, protects users browsing in fixed and mobile environments from threats such as phishing and ransomware. Cradlepoint will integrate these capabilities with existing zero trust and SD-WAN solutions into Cradlepoint NetCloud for a single pane of glass user experience for IT teams. “As enterprises evolve and become more diverse in terms of their connectivity to branch, mobile and IoT, they need a more 5G centric approach to security and management. An updated approach to SASE is essential for today’s modern organisation to defend against elevated attack surfaces,” said Todd Krautkremer, CMO, Cradlepoint. “Current SASE solutions are not optimised for 5G. Cradlepoint’s strategy is to provide lean IT organisations with a security solution that is aligned with the realities of a changing business and network profile. “ “A full SASE solution that is optimised for 5G will allow IT organisations to manage network security, network access policies, and observability across wireless connectivity in any hybrid WAN,” said Shamus McGillicuddy, vice president of research at Enterprise Management Associates (EMA). “Cradlepoint’s vision encompasses the definition of SASE for these hybrid WANs.” About Cradlepoint Cradlepoint enables the freedom to connect people, places, and things that drive more experiences, more ways to work, and better business results — anywhere. The company is a pioneer in Wireless WAN, offering advanced 4G and 5G routers and adapters — controlled through Cradlepoint NetCloud™. Enterprise businesses and public sector agencies rely on Cradlepoint and its Cellular Intelligence to build a reliable, secure network wherever they need it, connecting fixed and temporary sites, vehicles, IoT devices, and remote employees. Headquartered in Boise, Idaho, Cradlepoint is a wholly owned subsidiary of Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) and part of their Business Area Enterprise Wireless Solutions.

Pivotal Commware Raises $102 million Series D Round to Accelerate mmWave Wireless FWA Rollout

5G, Wireless, Wifi, Computer networking, WAN ,LAN, MAN | August 18, 2023

Pivotal Commware, global leader in 5G mmWave infrastructure products, announces the closing of a $102 million Series D round led by Gates Frontier and Tracker Capital. Joining them as co-leads in the round are funds managed by affiliates of Fortress Investment Group, LLC, and Blue Investment Group. Among Pivotal’s existing investors, Verizon Ventures, Devonshire Investors, Thermo Companies, DIG Investment XV AB and Lux Capital also participated. Pivotal products, applications and services deliver solutions for Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) households to Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) at a low Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and with fast time-to-revenue. By re-directing mmWave signals beyond line-of-sight, Pivotal’s Pivot 5G repeaters extend the wireless coverage area of radio access networks (RANs). “As data demand grows, a country’s economic success and social development will require widespread access to the Internet, and mmWave is foundational to bring this about,” said Glenn Lurie, Pivotal Board Member, and former President & CEO of AT&T Mobility. “Verizon’s leadership in 5G and mmWave in particular has positioned both Verizon and Pivotal for sustained success.” “Pivotal is contributing to Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) around the world getting their fair share of the broadband market, valued at $100 billion in the US alone,” said Dr. Shaygan Kheradpir, senior advisor to Tracker Capital and the Technology-Telecom team lead at Cerberus Capital Management. “We think Pivotal will be a leading light among future telecom infrastructure providers.” “Customer demand for data continues to climb and that increased customer demand will benefit from the higher capacity found at mmWave frequencies,” said Brian Deutsch, CEO of Pivotal Commware. “We are delighted to have investors like Gates Frontier, Tracker Capital, and Verizon who share our vision for the future of our crucial and rapidly expanding industry.” “The number of mmWave CPEs deployed for FWA will triple in four years. Heck, it will almost double in the next 12 months,” commented Joe Madden, Chief Analyst at Mobile Experts Inc. “The technology has been proven over the past two years, and now the operators are stepping on the accelerator.” The new capital raised will provide the opportunity to invest aggressively in Pivotal Turnkey to drive mmWave FWA coverage for MNOs. Capital and cash flow from operations will also be used to develop next generation software and hardware products and solutions. Citigroup acted as exclusive placement agent to Pivotal Commware. About Pivotal Commware, Inc.
