Acquisition News | Forcepoint to Acquire Security Service Edge Leader Bitglass


Forcepoint has announced the company has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Security Service Edge (SSE) leader Bitglass. Bitglass delivers the industry’s only truly integrated cloud-native SSE platform for securing access to and usage of information as organizations transform to the cloud.

It brings together best-in-class Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB), Secure Web Gateway (SWG), Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA), and Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM), combined with Data Loss Prevention (DLP) capabilities to enable uniform security policies for accessing the web, cloud, and private data centers managed through a single console.

“Complexity is the enemy of security. IT teams today are faced with the reality that securing a hybrid work environment is even more complex than the move to work-from-home was last year. With the acquisition of Bitglass, Forcepoint will be accelerating our ability to address customers’ widespread need for enabling hybrid workforces to safely access and use information everywhere—in the web, cloud and data center—more easily than ever before,” said Manny Rivelo, Chief Executive Officer at Forcepoint.
