Cloud-delivered services provider Zscaler
has acquired the Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) technology of security startup TrustPath. Zscaler, which has headquarters in San Jose, California, United States, was established in 2008. The company’s services enable businesses and other organizations to “securely transform their networks and applications for a mobile and cloud first world”. Its “100% cloud-delivered” flagship services - Zscaler Internet Access and Zscaler Private Access - enable users to connect to the applications they need “regardless of device, location, or network”. Zscaler also operates an extensive cloud security platform. Its acquisition of TrustPath’s technologies will extend its cloud platform capabilities.
The Zscaler platform offers a range of features including behavior analytics, machine learning, Cloud IPS, and zero-day detection. Once incorporated into its platform, TrustPath’s technology will enhance Zscaler’s ability to “derive intelligence from the 50 billion transactions processed daily” by its cloud. This intelligence will be used to establish behavioral profiles and determine enterprise risk such as potential cyberattacks. Financial aspects of the deal were not released.
"Zscaler's cloud security platform is helping leading global enterprises securely transform their infrastructure for the cloud and mobile world," explained Jay Chaudhry, the CEO of Zscaler. "TrustPath's technology complements the broad and deep security capabilities that Zscaler has already built and further enhances the platform that is protecting over 200 of the Forbes Global 2000 companies."Do you know of any other companies involved in acquisitions?
