FireMon completes acquisition of Immediate Insight

FireMon has announced the acquisition of Immediate Insight to add proactive network security intelligence and real-time security event analysis to its portfolio.

Combining detailed network security intelligence with real-time security event analysis, the expanded capability will enable users to better identify gaps in their network security infrastructure, as well as triage any active compromise by automatically re-provisioning policies to prevent resulting attacks.

FireMon plans to rapidly integrate the Immediate Insight team and technology into its existing business structure and solutions portfolio. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

“Immediate Insight has developed exciting new technology that expands our capabilities in a very strategic manner, allowing FireMon to deliver on a highly actionable, multitiered security intelligence model,” said Jody Brazil, CEO of FireMon.

“This technology has already proven its value in enterprise environments as a direct complement to our strategic technology partners. We’re extremely excited about the combination of these solutions and what this represents not only for FireMon, but also our customers and the industry at large.”

Jeff Barker, founder and CEO of Immediate Insight. “We’re excited to be part of the team and bring together FireMon’s industry-leading security intelligence with Immediate Insight’s innovative data analysis to offer organisations unique insight into current and future security risks.”
