Global cybersecurity leader Palo Alto Networks on Tuesday announced today that it has completed its acquisition of Israel-based Secdo. For Palo Alto Networks, the transaction brings sophisticated endpoint detection and response, or EDR, capabilities – including unique data collection and visualisation – to Palo Alto Networks Traps advanced endpoint protection and the Application Framework in order to enhance their ability to rapidly detect and stop even the stealthiest attacks.
"The completion of this acquisition adds Secdo's EDR capabilities into our platform and accelerates our ability to detect and prevent successful cyberattacks across the cloud, endpoint, and network," said Mark McLaughlin, Palo Alto Networks CEO.
Secdo's thread-level approach to data collection and visualization goes far beyond traditional EDR methods, which only collect general event data. Once integrated with Traps and the Palo Alto Networks platform, this rich data will feed into the Logging Service and give applications running in the Palo Alto Networks Application Framework greater precision to visualize, detect and stop cyberattacks.
Based in Santa Clara, California, Palo Alto Networks is a global cybersecurity leader, known for always challenging the security status quo. Its stated mission is to protect our way of life in the digital age by preventing successful cyberattacks. The firm works with tens of thousands of organisations and their customers around the world.
Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
