At Juniper Networks, we recognize the importance of shoring up internal defenses given today’s dynamic security threat landscape. As cloud-based Advanced Threat Prevention (ATP) is becoming a critical feature of next generation firewalls, Juniper intends to be a leader in the NGFW space as it’s critical to our Software-Defined Secure Network vision.
In order to advance security and provide customers with an industry-leading ATP platform to bolster their overall security posture, we have taken an important step with our intent to acquire Cyphort, a security software company providing mid- and large-size enterprise customers with security analytics for advanced threat defense.
This acquisition is expected to strengthen Juniper’s Sky ATP solution, by offering an enhanced solution for both on-premises and cloud - providing the best of both worlds for customers.
Cyphort’s solution is built with an open architecture that integrates with existing security tools to discover and contain the threats that bypass the first line of security defense. This is accomplished through machine learning and behavioral analytics to improve efficacy. Harnessing the power of its analytics engine, Cyphort’s technology complements traditional security information and event management (SIEM) platforms and, in some cases, provides a more efficient and simpler solution for enterprise customers.
Cyphort will seamlessly integrate into Juniper’s Sky ATP platform to provide customers with improved performance, an increased range of supported file types and additional threat detection capabilities (e.g., on- and off-premises support, cloud email, analytics and improved malware detection).
The acquisition is expected to close within the next month, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions.
