Exium and IBM partner to deliver secure edge AI stack
5G security firm Exium is collaborating with IBM to help firms securely adopt an edge AI strategy.
Exium offers users an end-to-end AI deployment solution designed for high-performance at the edge that can extend to any cloud.
The platform can help clients address vendor lock-in challenges by providing flexibility to run their centralised data/AI resources across any cloud or in private data centres.
Exium’s Secure Edge AI is designed to provide a secured edge for IoT data collection and AI execution that works with Ethernet, WiFi and 4G now, and which can help enterprises upgrade to 5G going forward.
Its zero-trust edge security addresses trust assumptions to help build safe connections between users, devices and edge applications. Also, its intent-driven edge network capabilities enable edge applications to “influence” 5G networks for improved traffic routing, steering and QoS control.
“With computing done in so many places we believe the challenge that businesses face today is to securely connect all these different elements into a cohesive, end-to-end platform,” said Farooq Khan, founder and CEO at Exium.
“Through our collaboration we plan to integrate with IBM Edge Application Manager to offer edge solutions at scale for our clients.”
Evaristus Mainsah, GM for IBM hybrid cloud and edge ecosystem, added: “Together, we can help enterprises accelerate their digital transformation by acting on insights closer to where their data is being created, at the edge.”
