OPSWAT acquires Impulse to expand and boost NAC offerings

OPSWAT has completed the buyout of another best-in-class cybersecurity firm, Impulse, enabling it to offer end-to-end network access control (NAC) solutions to its customers. The value of the deal was undisclosed at the time of the announcement.

“Integrating Impulse’s core technologies and teams with OPSWAT will deliver best-in-class network protection to our customers,” said Benny Czarny, OPSWAT founder and CEO.

“Through this combined solution, we will now be better positioned to extend our ‘trust no device, trust no file’’ doctrine to the network itself, empowering our joint customers to enforce access policies with ease, prevent known and unknown threats, and reduce their overall risk exposure.”

Impulse’s award-winning flagship SafeConnect Network Access Control (NAC) product offers flexible endpoint policy management for BYOD.

The SafeConnect Software Defined Perimeter (SDP) solution embraces a Zero Trust model to protect data and applications, whether on-premises or in the cloud.

“The network perimeter is no longer confined to the four walls of a physical datacentre. Rather, it extends out to every employee device or cloud-based application, introducing new complexities and risks,”said Impulse’s founder and CEO David Robinson.

California’s OPSWAT will extend its critical infrastructure protection worldwide by extending around-the-clock customer support at Impulse’s Tampa, Florida location with support across EMEA and APAC as well as San Francisco. Read the full announcement.
