SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/07/16 --
Ken Xie, founder, chairman of the board and chief executive officer, Fortinet
"Sixty-percent of all security breaches result in stolen data starting within minutes of the breach and go undetected due to ineffective threat monitoring and security event correlation. In addition, the lack of a holistic view across organizations' entire distributed, multi-vendor networks and the growing quantity and complexity of threat information create big-data security challenges. With the acquisition of AccelOps, Fortinet extends its Security Fabric to address these challenges by combining security and compliance monitoring with advanced analytics for multi-vendor security solutions, enabling automated and actionable security intelligence from IoT to the cloud."
(NASDAQ: FTNT), the global leader in high-performance cyber security solutions, today announced its acquisition of AccelOps, a leading provider of network security monitoring and analytics solutions. The acquisition further extends Fortinet's recently announced strategy by enhancing network security visibility, security data analytics and threat intelligence across multi-vendor solutions.
