FireMon, a provider of network security policy management solutions, is to acquire Lumeta Corporation, a Somerset, New Jersey-based provider of cyber situational awareness solutions for delivering complete real-time visibility into the extended network and across all connected endpoints.
The acquisition, which is subject to customary closing conditions, is expected to be completed within the second quarter of 2018. Upon closing of the transaction, FireMon intends to continue operating Lumeta as a stand-alone business, while providing additional resources to accelerate Lumeta’s continued technology development and integration with FireMon.
Reggie Best will continue as Lumeta’s president and serve on the Executive Leadership team at FireMon.
FireMon provides solutions that improve security through the implementation of intent-based security, which enables business owners and DevOps teams to determine the business intent of applications (and the related security and compliance requirements) and automate the generation of rules required to enforce that intent.
Lumeta’s technology will now enable the company’s customers to extend intent-based security to on-premise and cloud assets that were previously unknown and ensure the right security measures are in place in an automated way utilizing an organization’s existing security infrastructure.
The integration will allow customers to discover, secure and monitor previously unknown applications, networks and endpoints, both on-premise and in the cloud.
