Cybersecurity company Radware has acquired Seculert, augmenting its data center security capabilities with Seculert’s machine learning technology that analyzes systems for threat in advance of an attack rather than analyzing attacks once they’ve already happened.

Seculert’s cloud platform uses large-scale processing and machine learning techniques to conduct behavioral analysis aimed at detecting stealth attack campaigns.

“The Seculert acquisition allows Radware to leverage machine learning technology and its data analytics platform in order to expand our core expertise beyond attack analysis to threat analysis, which provides a panoramic view of the data center’s posture,” David Aviv, Radware CTO, said in a statement. “These capabilities expand Radware’s attack mitigation from real-time and near-time to include detection of stealth attack campaigns.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
