Sophos has announced the acquisition of cloud-based security firm Mojave Networks.
In a deal that will strengthen Sophos’s cloud-managed and appliance-based security solutions, Mojave’s cloud-based web filtering engine and protection from emerging threats using real-time threat intelligence will be integrated into its fast-growing Sophos Cloud product line from next year, and later into its appliance-based network security solutions.
The entire offering will be an integrated security platform which brings together best-of-breed PC, Mac, mobile and network protection abilities through a single cloud-based console. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Garrett Larsson, CEO of Mojave Networks, said: “We are proud of the work we’ve done at Mojave to pioneer a cloud-based approach to mobile and web security that offers unrivaled protection from malicious threats, security for mobile workers, and uniform policies across platforms.
“As part of Sophos we can continue to pursue our vision of comprehensive security for a mobile workforce at an accelerated pace, as we take full advantage of the rapid growth of Sophos Cloud, Sophos’ world-class community of more than 15,000 partners, and Sophos’ global presence. We’re excited to join such an innovative and disruptive leader in the IT security space.”
Kris Hagerman, CEO of Sophos, said: “We’re dedicated to delivering security that is both powerful and comprehensive, but also simple. By integrating Mojave Networks’ technology into Sophos Cloud, we’re extending our leadership position and enhancing an offering that is already one of the fastest growing products in Sophos’ history.”
