Cisco Acquires ScanSafe
The acquisition brings together the Cisco IronPort high-performance web security appliance and ScanSafe's software as a service (SaaS) web security service to offer superior on-premise, hosted, and hybrid-hosted web security solutions.
According to Cisco, the combination is expected to provide better protection from threats, while flexible delivery options will enhance its ability to protect the borderless network as organizations increasingly depend on Web 2.0 and mobility technologies to collaborate and conduct business.
Cisco has said that ScanSafe's service will be integrated with Cisco AnyConnect VPN Client, the newest virtual private network (VPN) product from Cisco, to provide secure mobility solution.
Cisco has further said that in addition, ScanSafe's global network of carrier-grade data centers and multi-tenant architecture will further enhance its ability to provide new cloud-security services for customers anywhere in the world.
Cisco has added that with the close of the acquisition, the ScanSafe team becomes part of its security technology business unit, reporting to Tom Gillis, vice president and general manager.
