  • IoT Security Fortinet Offers Bradford Networks

    The multinational Fortinet has acquired Bradford Networks to converge access control and Internet of Things (IoT) security.

    Fortinet strengthens its “Security Fabric” by opting for external growth. The California based company recently announced the acquisition of Bradford Networks. And this to strengthen the security on the periphery of the network. It is mainly about converging access control and the security of the Internet of Things (IoT).

    Bradford Networks provides business and government with an access control solution (visibility control, incident response). It allows, a “software-free” evaluation of devices, users and application accessing the network of a company, particularly via connected objects.
    The real-time classification of equipment, the segmentation of connected objects or the automated containment of compromised devices. All these operations are managed from a simple web interface says Bradford Networks. Bradford Networks vs. Cisco ISE

    Founded in 2000, the company is based in Boston, Massachusetts. Bradford boasts more than a thousand customers in different sectors (health, education, energy, finance, etc.). Bradford Networks' main competing products are Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE), and ForeScout Counter ACT. So many actors with whom Fortinet says on his blog want to continue working "through the Fabric Partner program to maintain maximum flexibility and choice for our customers."

    Fortinet did not provide the financial details of the transaction. However, the publisher would initially have paid $ 17 million to acquire Bradford Networks. And could pay 2 million dollars more, under performance conditions, according to CRN.
