The Middleware Associates security platform is based on partnerships with established hardware manufacturers who have invested in open protocols and standard API’s (application programming interfaces) . As a result, our end users are never stuck with hardware that is only compatible with one software developer. In turn their hardware purchases become more of an investment than a cost.
