Symantec acquires Israel-based Fireglass

Symantec has entered into an agreement to acquire Israel-based web security company Fireglass. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions, and is expected to close in the third calendar quarter of 2017. Symantec expects Fireglass’ technology to be available to its customers and partners soon after the transaction closes.

Delivered as a cloud service, on premises, or in a hybrid model, Fireglass provides browser isolation that can reduce the surface of a possible attack surface. Users are protected regardless of the links they click or the uncategorized websites they visit, according to the company, as all potentially harmful website and email content and attachments are executed within a fully protected and separate environment.
