AUSTIN, Texas – Forcepoint, a global leader in data-first cybersecurity solutions, announced the acquisition of Cyberinc, a provider of Remote Browser Isolation (RBI) technology that gives administrators granular control that enables them to minimize risk without impeding user productivity.
Today’s distributed enterprises amplify challenges for security teams that already must adapt to rapidly evolving hybrid workforces and ever-expanding SaaS applications. The Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) architecture, which reinvents fragmented networking and security products as converged, cloud-native services, provides a compelling path forward. According to Gartner, “by 2025, at least 60% of enterprises will have explicit strategies and timelines for SASE adoption encompassing user, branch and edge access, up from 10% in 2020.”
“Forcepoint is executing on our vision for the industry’s most comprehensive Data-first SASE offering that delivers risk-based data security everywhere, over every channel, to give customers consistent enforcement anywhere their people work,” said Manny Rivelo, CEO of Forcepoint. “The acquisition of Cyberinc’s Smart Isolation capabilities is the first of many investments Forcepoint will make to enhance user productivity, lower operational burdens and eliminate traditional monolithic products through a best-in-class SASE cloud service.”
The Forcepoint Data-first SASE platform enables enterprises to use the cloud to transform their network and security architectures. It can simplify connectivity and unify compliance with security policies wherever employees, partners and customers use data. Remote browser isolation has become a key component utilized within modern SASE architectures.
Cyberinc has developed the industry’s first Smart Isolation capability that is context-aware and adapts the browsing experience with dynamic risk assessment.
Forcepoint will integrate Cyberinc’s Smart Isolation capabilities within the company’s current SASE offering to offer enterprises of all sizes better visibility and control to protect against advanced threats as well as theft or loss of sensitive data, wherever people are working.
“Like Forcepoint, Cyberinc understands the key to modern security is to get ahead of the threat and prevent breaches before they happen. Our shared vision is to intelligently adapt to the changing levels of risk posed as employees click on links or web pages while balancing a better native user experience and security,” said Samir Shah, CEO of Cyberinc.
Forcepoint Development Center in Mumbai
As part of the acquisition, Forcepoint will also establish an innovation center in Mumbai that brings together and builds upon Cyberinc’s India-based technical and engineering talent. The Cyberinc technology and employees are joining Forcepoint as part of the company’s global innovation development teams to help accelerate new SASE capabilities with risk-based RBI innovation.
