Fortinet to Acquire AccelOps for Security Monitoring

Fortinet agreed to acquire AccelOps, a start-up based in Santa Clara, California, that specializes in network security monitoring and analytics solutions. Financial terms were not disclosed.

AccelOps’s virtual appliance software monitors security, performance and compliance in local and virtualized infrastructures, resulting in a unified view of the environment. The software discovers, analyzes and automates IT issues across multi-tenant or single networks, spanning servers, devices, storage, networks, security, applications and users.


Fortinet said the acquisition extends Fortinet’s recently announced Security Fabric strategy by enhancing network security visibility, security data analytics and threat intelligence across multi-vendor solutions. AccelOps solutions will become FortiSIEM and become part of the Fortinet Security Fabric, providing customers with greater visibility across both Fortinet and multi-vendor security solutions.

“Fortinet and AccelOps share a common vision of providing holistic, actionable security intelligence across the entire IT infrastructure. Our mission has always been to help our customers make security and compliance management as effortless and effective as possible. The synergies between AccelOps’s solutions and Fortinet’s Security Fabric vision and thought leadership will ensure that our customers are protected with the most scalable and proven global threat intelligence, security and performance analytics and compliance and control across all types of network environments with multiple security and networking vendor products,” stated Partha Bhattacharya, founder and chief technology officer, AccelOps.
