Juniper Announces Intent to Acquire Cyphort

Acquisition will extend the reach of Juniper Sky Advanced Threat Prevention.

Juniper has announced its intent to acquire Cyphort, an innovator in the software security space. Cyphort equips large and midsize enterprises with security analytics for advanced threat defense. The acquisition will strengthen the capabilities of Juniper Sky Advanced Threat Prevention (ATP), giving security practitioners a consistent feature set for both on-premises and cloud solutions.

Advanced Security Analytics Platform

Cyphort’s technology complements traditional security information and event management (SIEM) platforms. The open, scalable Cyphort security analytics platform helps incident responders and security analysts work more effectively to secure your business.

Combined with Sky ATP, Cyphort will provide increased efficiency and performance, a wider range of supported file types, and new threat-detection functionality that draws from advanced machine learning and behavioral analytics.

The acquisition is expected to close within the next month, subject to customary closing conditions.

As cloud-based advanced threat prevention becomes an increasingly critical feature of next-generation firewalls, Juniper will continue to be a leader through forward-looking technology investments.
