Capitalizing On Cloud Momentum

Palo Alto Networks took the cybersecurity industry by storm Wednesday with the acquisition of not one, but two, cloud security startups, scooping up rising container security star Twistlock for $410 million and early-stage serverless security startup PureSec for $47 million, according to filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

The deals will allow Palo Alto Networks to build on the public cloud capabilities it established through its 2018 acquisitions of Evident for $300 million and RedLock for $173 million. Expanding into adjacent technologies like containers and serverless will ensure customers can get all of their cloud security needs met with a single platform and without cumbersome, manual integrations.
