Forcepoint acquires Cyberinc

Forcepoint today announced the company has acquired Cyberinc. Cyberinc delivers intelligent remote browser isolation (RBI) technology that gives administrators granular control that enables them to minimize risk without impeding user productivity.

“Forcepoint is executing on our vision for the industry’s most comprehensive Data-first SASE offering that delivers risk-based data security everywhere, over every channel, to give customers consistent enforcement anywhere their people work,” said Manny Rivelo, CEO of Forcepoint. ”The acquisition of Cyberinc’s Smart Isolation capabilities is the first of many investments Forcepoint will make to enhance user productivity, lower operational burdens and eliminate traditional monolithic products through a best-in-class SASE cloud service.”

Forcepoint will integrate Cyberinc’s Smart Isolation capabilities within the company’s current SASE offering, including Cloud Security Gateway (web and cloud security), Private Access (Zero Trust Network Access), Email Security gateway and Next-Generation Firewall to offer enterprises of all sizes better visibility and control to protect against advanced threats as well as theft or loss of sensitive data, wherever people are working.

Forcepoint Development Center in Mumbai

As part of the acquisition, Forcepoint will also establish an innovation center in Mumbai that brings together and builds upon Cyberinc’s India-based technical and engineering talent. The Cyberinc technology and employees are joining Forcepoint as part of the company’s global innovation development teams to help accelerate new SASE capabilities with risk-based RBI innovation.

The acquisition of Cyberinc’s Smart Isolation technology expands Forcepoint’s RBI portfolio including Forcepoint Remote Browser Isolation powered by Ericom announced in July 2020.
