Today we announce the next stage of Clearswift’s global growth, in line with our strategic vision for 2014; the acquisition of the intellectual property rights, customer base and partner network of Microdasys, a market leader of web traffic protection technology.
Already a Clearswift technology partner, Microdasys’ SCIP is designed to help organizations apply data loss prevention to secured web-based traffic that use HTTP/S. With the increase of cloud collaboration tools and social networking websites within the enterprise, the importance of being able to have visibility and control of all activity and critical information is vital.
The acquisition of Microdasys reinforces our commitment to critical information protection, safeguarding our clients from cyber threats, ensuring the protection of business critical information, whilst enabling continuous and secure collaboration.
As an existing technology partner that was tried and tested, the acquisition of Microdasys was a logical step for us. Furthermore, it fits perfectly into our growth strategy, enhancing our own critical information protection solutions – which are aimed at mitigating risk and delivering 100% visibility of critical information, 100% of the time. We are delighted in today’s announcement.
