HPE Acquires Niara To Expand Aruba's Network Security Portfolio
Staying on the topic of savvy acquisitions, Hewlett Packard Enterprise this week struck a deal to buy startup Niara, a security analytics and network platform developer. The move will allow HPE to enhance the Aruba ClearPass network security portfolio for wired and wireless network infrastructure.
Niara develops next-generation behavior analytics software that Aruba executives plan to combine with Aruba's ClearPass network security product portfolio.
HPE partners said the Niara acquisition is a direct competitive shot at Cisco at the edge of intelligent networks where they see Cisco as most vulnerable, competitively.
