Executive Opinion

Afero offers a purpose-built end-to-end platform that allows developers to quickly and elegantly deploy connectivity, cloud-based management and mobile app control with security at the core of their architecture. Crosspoint is thrilled to partner with the Afero team who have decades of proven execution in integrating usability, security and connectivity into a diverse set of devices."

Joe Britt, Co-Founder and CEO of Afero, said, "Since 2014, Afero has enabled consumers and enterprises to better protect the devices they use daily, and we're eager to extend our offerings across new markets such as logistics and healthcare. Crosspoint's expertise will help us seize the massive opportunity in making connected devices safer and easier to use."
