LiveAction is acquiring network detection and response vendor CounterFlow AI, according to a press release on the company’s website. The company seeks to unify its network performance monitoring capabilities with CounterFlow AI’s native network security capabilities. The financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
In the company’s press release, LiveAction’s CEO Stephen Stuut said: “NetOps and SecOps teams are facing advanced security threats hiding within the rising tide of encrypted traffic, and losing an inordinate amount of time coordinating to triage alerts and potential incidents. Businesses today need end-to-end visibility for both network performance and security management, which is why CounterFlow AI’s cutting-edge NDR capabilities are such a perfect match for our platform. Once integrated, our customers and partners can streamline NetOps and SecOps workflows, protect against encrypted threats, ensure the network meets business objectives, and increase overall productivity to reduce the costs of operating and securing the network.”
LiveAction offers a network performance and analytics platform that eases network monitoring and configuration.
