Palo Alto Networks Buys RedLock to Strengthen Cloud Security

October 5, 2018 Published in: News Author: Vedran Bozicevic

Palo Alto Networks today announced its plans to buy cloud security analytics startup RedLock for $173 million in cash.

RedLock was co-founded in 2015 by Gaurav Kumar and Varun Badhwar, both of whom will be joining Palo Alto Network’s team. The company was founded on the premise that it’s up to public cloud users to properly secure content and firewall settings. Its platform brings together security data sets, network traffic, vulnerabilities, and threat intelligence so security teams can manage threats and develop securely on Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services, and Google Cloud.

Palo Alto Networks plans to leverage RedLock’s technology to bring security analytics, threat detection, and compliance monitoring into its own cloud security offering for multicloud environments. It’s working on a new cloud security tool, which is expected to be released in early 2019.
