Cybersecurity giant Fortinet said that it has completed the acquisition of enSilo, a privately held advanced endpoint security company headquartered in San Francisco. The acquisition is likely to enhance company’s endpoint and network security solutions. The terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“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,” said Ken Xie, Founder, chairman of the board, and CEO, Fortinet.
The cyber security vendor claimed that the combination of Fortinet and enSilo will be a powerful offering for enterprises and service providers of all sizes.
“Fortinet intends to offer customers additional security effectiveness through the integration of enSilo’s endpoint detection and response (EDR) technology with Fortinet’s FortiSIEM solution, FortiInsight UEBA (user entity behavior analytics) features, and FortiNAC solution,” said the company.
“Together, enSilo and Fortinet share the commitment to solve customers’ most difficult challenges and to protect the endpoint and their corresponding operations and data. Now, enSilo brings its patented approach for advanced endpoint protection and response to Fortinet and its broad security portfolio,” stated Roy Katmor, CEO and Founder, enSilo.
Citing an Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) research, the company stressed that 76% of organisations find threat detection and response more difficult today than it was two years ago.
“Vendors like Fortinet are tackling this problem by constructing an integrated security platform across endpoints, network and cloud infrastructure. The move to natively add enSilo’s automated EDR capabilities to the Fortinet platform should improve and accelerate alert correlation, leading to faster threat detection and incident response,” said Dave Gruber, Senior Analyst, ESG.
