Fortinet acquires enSilo to protect Endpoints and Edge data

Fortinet announced the acquisition of enSilo, an advanced endpoint security company. The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Founded in 2014, San Francisco headquartered enSilo delivers Endpoint Security Platform to secure endpoints in real-time pre- and post-infection. In total, the company has raised $57.5M in funding over 5 rounds.

The announcement noted that enSilo was a Fortinet Security Fabric-ready partner before acquisition. Fortinet Security Fabric, Fortinet’s endpoint and network security solutions will be further enhanced with the latest enSilo's portfolio capabilities. Fortinet’s Security Fabric aims to deliver automated protection from IoT (Internet of Things) to the edge, network core and to multi-clouds. 

Executive Opinion

Founder, Chairman of the Board, and CEO, Fortinet, Ken Xie, said, "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 threat hunting or point security solutions are ineffective when managing or securing these new environments. Instead security and the network need to be integrated and orchestrated to enable advanced threat containment at network speeds. In acquiring enSilo, we add automated, real-time detection, protection, and response enhancements to our Fortinet Security Fabric to further protect endpoints and corresponding edge data."

Chief Executive Officer and Founder, enSilo, Roy Katmor, said, "Together, enSilo and Fortinet share the commitment to solve customers’ most difficult challenges and to protect the endpoint and their corresponding operations and data. Now, enSilo brings its patented approach for advanced endpoint protection and response to Fortinet and its broad security portfolio.”

Fortinet and enSilo deal

Customers of Fortinet will benefit with automated real-time protection against advanced threats and incident response services, ensure PCI, HIPAA, and GDPR compliance. enSilo also brings security for the Internet of Things (IoT) endpoints. Fortinet integrated solutions with enSilo capabilities will also support on-premise and cloud deployment with multi-tenancy.

Fortinet also plans to offer the integration of enSilo’s endpoint detection and response (EDR) technology with Fortinet’s FortiSIEM solution, FortiInsight UEBA (user entity behavior analytics) features, and FortiNAC solution, notes the announcement.
