SonicWall accelerates SASE offerings; acquires Banyan Security

Cybersecurity vendor SonicWall this week announced the acquisition of Banyan Security, a provider of security service edge (SSE) offerings for the modern workforce. This acquisition, it said, strengthens the SonicWall portfolio by “adding zero trust security relied on by leading Fortune 100 companies to small businesses who are replacing legacy architectures for SSE solutions, including Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA).”

Bob Vankirk, president and chief executive officer (CEO) of SonicWall, said, “cybersecurity’s focus is shifting to more dynamic solutions that can adapt to the ever-evolving landscape of threats in the cloud age.

“For years, firewalls have been the cornerstone of cybersecurity defenses. However, with the rise of cloud computing and secure access service edge (SASE), the industry is shifting its focus to more comprehensive and flexible approaches that include SSE and ZTNA as a necessity.”

The announcement comes on the heels of SonicWall’s recent acquisition of Solutions Granted, Inc. (SGI) which the company said “helped arm the channel with the latest managed detection and response services tailor-made for Managed Service Providers (MSPs) and Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs).”
