Barracuda Networks Inc. said Tuesday it has acquired secure Web gateway provider Purewire Inc.
Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Dean Drako, president of Campbell-based Barracuda, said buying Atlanta-based Purewire broadens his company’s cloud-based platform and deepens it security research and threat detection capabilities.
As part of the acquisition, Mike Van Bruinisse, Purewire co-founder and CEO, joins Barracuda Networks as vice president of enterprise sales; and Paul Judge, Purewire co-founder and chief technology officer, joins Barracuda Networks as vice president of cloud services and chief research officer.
Barracuda has more than 85,000 customers worldwide for its email, Internet, Web and IM protection. Barracuda Networks said it will now introduce the Purewire product line to a broader global market.
