Offers New Approach to Secure SaaS Applications and Extends Enterprise Security Platform Capabilities
Palo Alto Networks Santa Clara, CA , May 27, 2015
Palo Alto Networks (NYSE: PANW), the leader in enterprise security, today announced it has acquired CirroSecure, a Silicon Valley-based company with a highly differentiated approach to securing Software as a Service (SaaS) applications.
The Palo Alto Networks Enterprise Security Platform provides the industry's leading ability to safely enable applications and prevent cyber threats from compromising an organization's data and infrastructure. A key attribute of the platform is the ability to secure high risk, unsanctioned applications by providing superior visibility and control.
The addition of the CirroSecure technology to the Palo Alto Networks platform expands this functionality by providing additional security for SaaS applications such as Box, Dropbox, GitHub, Google Drive, and salesforce.com that are highly collaborative, yet often store some of an organization's most sensitive data.
Until now, the tools haven't existed to effectively manage and secure SaaS applications. The CirroSecure technology offers a highly differentiated approach to securing these applications by providing complete visibility across all user, folder, and file activity while applying deep analytics into day-to-day usage to quickly determine if any policy or data security violations have occurred. These violations are prevented through the use of granular, context-aware policies that allow organizations to quickly quarantine users and data as soon as a violation has occurred to prevent loss of sensitive data.
