E-mail Print PDF

Juniper boosts its Sky advanced threat prevention (ATP) through the acquisition of Cyphort, a startup specialised in security analytics for advanced threat defense.

Juniper networksFinancial details of the deal are not available.

Cyphort offers an open-architecture platform complete with a machine learning-powered analytics engine. It integrates with existing security tools to help mid-size and large enterprises find threats able to bypass first-line security efforts. Post-acquisition, Cyphort technology will be integrated in both cloud and on-premises Sky offerings.

The company already has a connection with Juniper-- its current CEO, Manoj Leelanivas is a Juniper veteran, having worked at the networking vendor for 14 years, most recently as executive VP of WW sales for advanced technologies. He previously worked at Cisco, and holds 10 patents for his work at both Juniper and Cisco.

The last Juniper acquisition was in December 2016, when it bought operations management firm AppFormix to add telemetry and operations management technology to the Contrail product line.
