Palo Alto Networks Announces Intent to Acquire Expanse: November 11, 2020

Palo Alto Networks, the global cybersecurity leader, announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Expanse Inc., a leader in attack surface management. As companies embark on digital transformation, they often leave critical IT assets exposed to the internet, creating vulnerable points that attackers can exploit. This exposure has only accelerated with the rapid shift to the cloud and remote working. Expanse’s internet collection and attribution platform constantly monitors the global internet to map exposed and untracked assets that comprise customers’ attack surfaces, evaluate and prioritize risk, and provide mitigation. Expanse’s data provides CISOs with a view of the enterprise from the outside, representing the view an attacker sees as they probe for points of weakness. Once combined, the Expanse platform will significantly enrich the Cortex™ product suite and create the ability to stitch together external, internal and threat data to provide organizations with a complete, integrated view of the enterprise.
