We are excited to announce today that McAfee, one of the world’s largest pure-play cyber security companies, has officially acquired Skyhigh Networks, a worldwide leader in the cloud access security broker (CASB) market to create the world’s preeminent cyber security company.

5 years ago, Skyhigh established and defined the CASB category that analysts describe as one of the fastest growing areas of IT security of the last five years. Since then, our mission has been to make the cloud the most secure environment for business by giving them total control over their data across cloud services. McAfee’s mission is to enable the world to fully realize the transformative power of the digital age securely.

 


Watch Rajiv Gupta and Chris Young describe their combined vision for security
 

Skyhigh has been on a journey to create a company that doesn’t just have a lot of products but one that solves our customer’s hardest problems. That includes our customer’s transition to the cloud and what that means for their data and applications. We want security to be a reason to adopt the cloud, as opposed to a barrier to cloud adoption. By joining McAfee, we will be able to tap into McAfee’s resources to further accelerate Skyhigh’s mission of making the cloud the most secure environment. Our combined vision is about building an end-to-end security model that goes all the way from the device to the cloud to create the secure environment of the future.
