Palo Alto Networks Acquires CirroSecure for SaaS Security

Palo Alto Networks has acquired CirroSecure, a Silicon Valley-based company with a solution for extending security into sanctioned, Software as a Service (SaaS) applications, like Box, Dropbox, GitHub, Google, Yammer, or Salesforce. Financial terms were not disclosed.

The CirroSecure technology offers a highly differentiated approach to securing these applications by providing visibility across all user, folder, and file activity while applying deep analytics into day-to-day usage to quickly determine if any policy or data security violations have occurred.

Palo Alto Networks said the addition of the CirroSecure technology to its Enterprise Security Platform provides additional security for SaaS applications, which often store some of an organization's most sensitive data. Palo Alto Networks expects the CirroSecure technology to be available in the second half of 2015 as a new subscription-based service.
