Axway, a business interaction networks specialist, recently announced that it intends to acquire Vordel (News - Alert), a company that deals in software technologies enabling enterprises to deliver APIs for cloud and mobile. The officials from Axway said the company will benefit from Vordel's API and identity capabilities, enabling its customers to seamlessly manage their flows of data that extend to cloud and mobile.
A software publisher with more than 11,000 clients in 100 countries, Axway integrates B2B solutions, MFT (Managed File Transfer), the monitoring of industry-related processes, securing e-mails and authentication associated with professional services and managed services.
On the other hand, Vordel's products enable enterprises to deliver APIs to cloud, mobile, and partners. The Vordel API Server is an enterprise-ready, unified API platform to manage, deliver and secure APIs. Global enterprises rely on the Vordel API Server to deploy mission-critical APIs and extend existing IT infrastructure to keep up with the rapid change in mobile and cloud computing technologies.
Christophe Fabre, CEO of Axway, said, “By choosing the right approach to integration CIOs and Enterprise Architects can save their organizations money and help ensure the success of their integration projects across the enterprise and into the cloud. Together Axway and Vordel align to enable that vision. The breadth of the combined Axway-Vordel platform will now provide companies with a single consolidated approach to their application and data integration needs --- across on-premise and cloud environments.”
Vic Morris, CEO of Vordel, commented, "I am delighted that Vordel is to become part of the Axway family. There is a natural synergy between the two companies, and our respective customers will benefit enormously from this combination of technologies. This is a new beginning for Vordel, and will ensure continued development and support of the Vordel API Server while also benefiting from the momentum that Axway will provide. As we move forward together, new Axway products will be delivered which will incorporate the strengths of both the Axway and Vordel product suites and enable Axway to further enhance its position as a market leader."
