Cisco Acquires Twingo To Expand Security Portfolio

The $5 million cash deal is expected to be finalized during Cisco's current fiscal quarter, which closes at the end of April, the San Jose, Calif.-based networking vendor said. After the acquisition is finalized, Cisco plans to sell the Twingo technology as part of the Cisco VPN 3000 Concentrator product line.

Twingo's software suite erases data such as history files, temporary files, caches, cookies and e-mail file attachments that could cause security breaches if left behind on outside devices used to access the corporate network.

The acquisition is Cisco's latest step to bolster its Self Defending Network Strategy, designed to enable networks to identify, prevent and respond to security threats.
