Cisco Completes the Acquisition of Securent


SAN JOSE, Calif. - Cisco® today announced that it has closed the acquisition of Securent, Inc., a leading provider of policy management software for enterprises. Securent’s scalable, distributed policy platform will help allow enterprises to administer, enforce, and audit access to data, communications, and applications in heterogeneous IT application environments.

Securent’s software will help enable Cisco customers to protect and secure valuable application data regardless of vendor, platform, or operating system while still allowing ubiquitous access to the content workers and their collaborative communities need to be productive. By delivering policy from the network, Cisco will simplify entitlement decisions for all communications, collaboration and other third party applications.

Cisco plans to integrate the Securent team and technologies into Cisco’s Collaboration Software Group, led by Don Proctor, senior vice president. This is acquisition No. 125 for Cisco.
