Forcepoint signs a definitive agreement to acquire UK-based Deep Secure

0

Forcepoint today announced the company has signed a definitive agreement to acquire U.K.-based Deep Secure. Deep Secure’s cybersecurity products and services protect organizations from cyberattacks delivered via malware and help prevent unwanted data loss.

Underlying the planned acquisition of Deep Secure are expansion opportunities that will enable Forcepoint to extend the capabilities of its industry-leading Cross Domain Solutions portfolio to deliver enhanced efficacy for securing the critical data and missions of governments in the U.S. and beyond. Cross domain solutions enable secure sharing and access to critical mission and operational data between security levels across the government and critical infrastructure, providing enhanced security and functionality for high-consequence missions around the world.

Deep Secure addresses a substantial problem for organizations — the safe exchange of information with trusted and untrusted sources. Deep Secure’s Threat Removal platform takes a zero trust approach to data, assuming all of the original data is infected and prohibits that data from reaching its destination. Instead, information is extracted from the original data, verified as safe using hardware-based verification, and then new data is built to carry the information safely to its destination. Malicious or unrecognized data hidden in the document is eradicated.

Deep Secure’s Threat Removal platform helps eliminate the threat from a number of the most common attack vectors, including email and web downloads, and is ideal for organizations requiring the highest levels of assurance. Unlike traditional Content, Disarm & Reconstruction (CDR) products, Deep Secure’s Threat Removal platform is not reliant on detection and has been proven to be highly effective, with optimized user experience, flexible deployment and proven ROI.

Subject to regulatory review and customary closing conditions, the transaction is expected to close in August 2021.

Forcepoint’s Data-first SASE with Integrated Defense-Grade CDR for Enterprises
With threat removal a critical game-changer for mitigating compromised data that leads to breaches, Forcepoint also plans to integrate Deep Secure’s CDR technology across the company’s Data-first SASE architecture for global enterprises.

The Forcepoint Data-first SASE platform enables enterprises to use the cloud to transform their network and security architectures. By putting data security first, Forcepoint’s SASE is able to simplify connectivity, and unify security policy enforcement everywhere employees, partners and customers use data across the distributed enterprise.

Further details on new integrated CDR capabilities within Forcepoint’s Data-first SASE platform will be announced later this year, following completion of the acquisition.
