Forcepoint Eyes Cyber Portfolio Expansion With Deep Secure Buy; Sean Berg Quoted

Forcepoint has agreed to buy U.K.-based Deep Secure for an undisclosed sum to expand its portfolio of cybersecurity offerings for governments, critical infrastructure and enterprises worldwide.

Forcepoint said Tuesday it expects the transaction to be completed in August, pending regulatory review and other customary closing conditions.

“The addition of Deep Secure’s innovative Threat Removal Platform and hardware security to our Forcepoint Cross Domain Solutions portfolio further extends the depth of our defense-grade capabilities to governments and critical infrastructure organizations around the world, who continue to be under siege from nation-state and other attackers looking for financial gain or to ultimately disrupt societies and economies at scale,” said Sean Berg, president of global governments and critical infrastructure at Forcepoint.

Deep Secure’s Threat Removal platform helps eliminate threats from web and email downloads and other attack vectors by applying a zero trust approach to data.

Forcepoint will also integrate Deep Secure’s content, disarm and reconstruction capabilities into its Data-first Secure Access Service Edge platform for enterprises.
