ISC8 Buys Bivio's NetFalcon CyberSecurityto ISC8

Bivio Networks has sold its NetFalcon and NCCS product and business assets to ISC8 for an undisclosed sum.


ISC8 said the acquisition brings advanced products and technologies for Security Intelligence, Incident Response, Content Control and mitigation of Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) in enterprise, service provider and government networks. ISC8 purchased the NetFalcon and Network Content Control System business units of Bivio Networks, including all related intellectual property, sales, engineering, managerial, and other operational resources. In addition, ISC8 will acquire an installed base consisting of nine accounts including leading Tier 1 service providers, enterprises and government agencies worldwide. 

Bivio said it will continue to focus on its DPI Application Platform for government and commercial customers.

“It is clear from both market and customer feedback that Advanced Persistent Threats, or Targeted Cyber Attacks, are the biggest Cybersecurity menace that governments, militaries and corporations face today,” said Bill Joll, president and CEO of ISC8. “With the close of the Bivio transaction, we now have a complete suite of products and technologies for helping these organizations with this most pressing cybersecurity problem, specifically the ability to detect these threats while the attack is ongoing. We also provide the supporting forensic evidence for these threats, which have typically remained undetected for a period of months to more than a year."

"Bivio has an established 12-year track record on providing leading cyber security solutions in the most challenging and mission critical environments," said Dr. Elan Amir, president and CEO of Bivio Networks. "Now that this transaction is complete, Bivio can continue to focus on delivering the DPI Application Platform to our government and commercial customers looking to deploy world-class cyber security solutions."
