Akamai Technologies has entered into an agreement to acquire Nominum, a privately-funded Internet security services company headquartered in Redwood City, CA. The all-cash transaction is expected to close later this quarter. The companies did not disclose the size of the deal.

By combining Nominum’s carrier-grade cybersecurity solutions with its own enterprise security offerings and threat intelligence, Akamai says it intends to serve a larger base of carrier and enterprise customers with more comprehensive security products.

Akamai expects the acquisition to be accretive in 2019.
