Aruba Networks Leader Talks Cisco, Niara Acquisition
Following Aruba Networks' acquisition of security startup Niara this week, Aruba leader Keerti Melkote spoke to CRN about the importance of the purchase and why it will give the vendor an advantage over networking rival Cisco.
"We go further than Cisco or any other vendor in security at the edge, even without the Niara acquisition. What Niara does is enhances that with the latest and greatest machine learning capabilities," said Melkote, senior vice president and General Manager of Aruba Networks, a subsidiary of HPE.
Melkote also dives into the current state of the integration process between Niara technology and its ClearPass platform, and explains why channel partners need to expand their HPE-Aruba security practice.
