10. Oracle Acquires Zenedge
Purchase Price: Not Disclosed
Oracle boosted the application and network protection around its cloud services in March by purchasing security startup Zenedge.
The Redwood Shores, California-based software vendor said its acquisition of Aventura, Florida-based Zenedge would make it easier for enterprises to adopt cloud services without compromising performance, cost, control or security. Zenedge's web application firewall and DDoS mitigation products help customers secure their applications, networks, databases and APIs from malicious internet traffic, Oracle said.
From a compliance perspective, Oracle said Zenedge offers a single, interactive control center, pre-built rule-sets extended by adaptive automation, and integrations into SIEM and security reporting. Zenedge's infrastructure is also scalable, Oracle said, with a globally-deployed network, worldwide traffic scrubbing centers, and a programmatic API interface for global propagation.
