Cisco Buys One More Security Company

by CXOtoday Staff    Jan 07, 2010

Cisco has confirmed it has bought Rohati Systems for an undisclosed amount. 

The security startup company, founded by former Cisco employees Prashant Gandhi and Anant Thakar, designs transaction networking systems to secure collaboration and ease regulatory compliance.

This acquisition is in line with Cisco’s motive to provide access management solutions for virtualised data centers and cloud-based networks. Apparently, the employees of Rohati Systems will join Cisco’s Nexus product team.

Last year, in December, Cisco had acquired ScanSafe — a SaaS security vendor — to bolster the Web security capabilities of IronPort (a company that Cisco had bought two years ago).
