Pushing Further Into The Cloud, FireMon Acquires Security Broker FortyCloud

A little more than a year after launching its first cloud infrastructure security management offering, FireMon has acquired cloud infrastructure security broker FortyCloud in a move that boosts its capabilities across all major cloud platforms.

The addition of Tel-Aviv-based FortyCloud’s product to Firemon’s portfolio will improve the company’s capability to effectively secure cloud infrastructure and connectivity, making the transition to cloud easier for enterprise clients starting to move more of their infrastructure to the cloud.

“As companies start adopting cloud, they are in a hybrid environment, … you have to manage both environments and we give them visibility to both their cloud and their local infrastructure,” Jody Brazil, FireMon co-founder and chief product strategist, said in an interview with CRN.
