Ruckus Wireless acquires Cloudpath Networks

Ruckus Wireless, Inc. (NYSE: RKUS) said it has acquired Cloudpath Networks, a privately held provider of secure Wi-Fi onboarding software, headquartered in Westminster, Colorado.

Cloudpath pioneered secure Wi-Fi onboarding in 2006 and has since become a leader in certificate-based Wi-Fi security with its automated, self-service software.
