Symantec to acquire IT security company Fireglass

Friday 7 July 2017 | 09:54 CET | News
Symantec entered into an agreement to acquire Israel-based IT security company Fireglass. With this acquisition, Symantec further strengthens its Integrated Cyber Defense Platform and improves its position in the market of Secure Web Gateway and Email protection delivered both on premises and in the cloud. Fireglass' approach to browser isolation substantially reduces the attack surface, strengthening an enterprise's security posture and as a result, significantly reduces the burden on the company's security operation centre (SOC) and IT help desk.
