Cisco to Acquire Pari Networks for Security Alert Compliance

Cisco agreed to acquire privately-held Pari Networks, start-up specializing in network configuration and change management (NCCM) and compliance management solutions, for an undisclosed sum.

Pari Networks, which is based in Milpitas, Calif., provides a security appliance with an advanced policy architecture for complying with alerts (such as National Security Agency guidelines, SANS, etc.), and vendor specific security advisories (such as Cisco PSIRTs), as well as regulatory compliance requirements (SOX, ISO17799, HIPAA, etc.). Pari Networks' technology will integrate into Cisco's smart services and help accelerate the ability of Cisco and its partners to manage the health and stability of customer networks through proactive, personalized services.

  • Pari Networks is headed by Kishore Kumar (CEO), who previously was a senior product line manager looking after router based security in Cisco Security Technology Group. The company's founders also include Satyan Raju, Sreenivas Devalla, and Siri Kothe -- all of whom also previously worked at Cisco.
