Security specialist WatchGuard Technologies has acquired CyGlass Technology Services, a cloud and network-centric threat detection and response provider.
The CyGlass cloud-native platform uses AI and ML techniques to defend hybrid networks, and is aimed at small to mid-sized organisations.
We founded CyGlass with the goal of helping organisations better defend their hybrid networks with new levels of intelligence that protect against the most sophisticated attacks,” said CyGlass founder and CEO Ed Jackowiak.
“Joining WatchGuard and integrating our capabilities into its impressive Unified Security Platform architecture takes our mission to the next level and makes it available to an established global network of partners and customers.”
WatchGuard chief product officer Andrew Young said “The success of CyGlass in the last year demonstrates that mid-sized companies and MSPs are seeking innovative detection and response solutions that are not reliant on costly hardware. The WatchGuard solutions built on CyGlass technology will create a competitive advantage for our partners that will drive increased revenue and margin opportunities,” said .
He added “When integrated into WatchGuard’s Unified Security Platform architecture, partners and customers alike will benefit from the latest security advances to keep network attacks at bay, enhanced XDR insights and actions with telemetry from 3rd-party devices including switches, and easier regulatory and cyber-insurance compliance with powerful built-in reports.”
WatchGuard’s first priority is to support current CyGlass customers and partners while integrating the company’s technology into the WatchGuard platform.
Terms of the acquisition were not revealed.
