The acquisition will add an additional layer of automated and real-time security features to Fortinet’s managed security services.
Fortinet (NASDAQ:FTNT), security company announced that it has acquired endpoint and detection company enSilo for an undisclosed amount. enSilo will be adding its automated endpoint detection services into Fortinet’s capabilities across a wide range of applications including FortiNac and FortiInsight user entity behaviour analytics systems.
As quoted in the press release:
“As businesses become more networked and operations extend from the cloud to the edge and Internet of Things, the digital attack surface has expanded exponentially and has become more complex to secure. Manual threat hunting or point security solutions are ineffective when managing or securing these new environments. Instead security and the network need to be integrated and orchestrated to enable advanced threat containment at network speeds. In acquiring enSilo, we add automated, real-time detection, protection, and response enhancements to our Fortinet Security Fabric to further protect endpoints and corresponding edge data.”
Fortinet® (NASDAQ: FTNT), a global leader in broad, integrated and automated cybersecurity solutions, announced today it has completed the acquisition of enSilo, a privately held advanced endpoint security company headquartered in San Francisco, California.
