Palo Alto has announced its 3rd acquisition of 2015. This is the latest cyber security vendor to acquire in the area of cloud security for SaaS applications. The acquisition of CirroSecure bolsters Palo Alto's product offerings in policy-based security for the fast-growing cloud and SaaS application area.
Amid delivering better-than-expected third quarter earnings, Palo Alto Networks announced it is acquiring cybersecurity startup CirroSecure. Founded in 2013, the privately-held, Sunnyvale, Calif.-based business specializes in guarding Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications, honing in as closely as the user, folder and file levels to monitor activity and potential policy and data security violations.
