Palo Alto Networks has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Israel-based Secdo. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed, but stands at a reported $100 million.

The Secdo acquisition brings endpoint detection and response, or EDR, capabilities, including unique data collection and visualization, to its advanced endpoint protection and the application framework, said the company in a statement. The Secdo team is expected to join Palo Alto Networks, after the acquisition.
