Fortinet buys advanced endpoint security company enSilo

Fortinet has announced that it has completed the acquisition of enSilo, a privately-held advanced endpoint security company headquartered in San Francisco, California.

enSilo uses a robust set of endpoint security tools to deny attackers from achieving their ultimate goals, while stopping the damage by automatically containing a threat, stopping data exfiltration, and preventing ransomware data tempering.

According to Ken Xie, Founder, Chairman of the Board, and CEO of Fortinet, “As businesses become more networked and operations extend from the cloud to the edge and Internet-of-Things, the digital attack surface has expanded exponentially and has become more complex to secure. Manual or point security solutions are ineffective when managing or securing these new environments. Instead, security and the network need to be integrated to enable advanced threat detection at network speeds. In acquiring enSilo, we add automated, real-time detection and response enhancements to our Fortinet Security Fabric to further protect endpoints and corresponding edge data.”

According to Fortinet, the enSilo suite of endpoint security solutions not only includes automated detection and response, but the ability to be seamlessly integrated into the larger Fortinet Security Fabric framework, further enhancing visibility while driving corporate security policies deeper into endpoint devices.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed. The enSilo team will join Fortinet.
