Palo Alto Prisma vs Zscaler in our news:
2020 - Palo Alto Networks to acquire AI cybersecurity firm Expanse for $800M
Palo Alto Networks has acquired Expanse for $800 million. Expanse provides a service to help companies understand and protect their attack surface, where they could be most vulnerable to attack. It works by giving the security team a view of how the company’s security profile could look to an attacker trying to gain access. The plan is to fold Expanse into Palo Alto’s Cortex Suite, an AI-driven set of tools designed to detect and prevent attacks in an automated way. Expanse should provide Palo Alto with a highly valuable set of data to help feed the AI models.
2020 - Palo Alto Networks to buy digital forensics consulting firm for $265M
Security software provider Palo Alto Networks has acquired The Crypsis Group, an incident response, risk management and digital forensics consulting firm, for a crisp $265 million. While the kinds of tools that Palo Alto provides are designed to prevent attacks, the fact is no set of tools is foolproof, and it’s always going to be a cat and mouse game between companies like Palo Alto and the attackers trying to breach their defenses. Crypsis can help figure out how a breach happened and ways to close up the cracks in the foundation to prevent access through that particular weak point in the future.
2020 - Palo Alto Networks to acquire CloudGenix for $420M
Palo Alto Networks has acquired CloudGenix for $420 million. CloudGenix delivers a software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) that helps customers stay secure by setting policies to enforce compliance with company security protocols across distributed locations. This is especially useful for companies with a lot of branch offices or a generally distributed workforce, something just about everyone is dealing with at the moment as we find millions suddenly working from home.
2015 - Cloud security service Zscaler raised $100 million
Security platform Zscaler, which offers a wide range of web, mobile and cloud security services for enterprises, has raised a $100 million Series B funding. That brings its valuation over $1 billion. The company says it now has more than 5,000 customers — double the number from a year ago. Its customers include the likes of Humana, NBC, ExxonMobil and the UK’s National Health Services. The company says it now protects more than 13 million employees. Zscaler’s technology sits between corporate networks (and the user’s mobile devices) and the cloud — no matter whether that’s a cloud computing service like AWS, Azure or a privately hosted OpenStack cloud, or cloud-based applications like Dropbox and Office 365. Because it inspects all traffic to these services from company-owned devices and networks, it can offer both security and compliance solutions.
