Cisco to buy Czech vendor Cognitive Security for real-time analytics | ITworld

Cisco plans to acquire Cognitive Security, a security software company that uses real-time behavioral analysis to detect security threats. Together, the technologies will work with a common policy engine built into networks, with distributed enforcement, according to a Cisco blog post.

Terms of the deal, which is expected to close in Cisco’s third fiscal quarter, were not disclosed.  Cognitive is privately held and based in Prague, Czech Republic, where it collaborates with researchers at Czech Technical University in a joint security research program.

In keeping with Cisco’s traditional architectural approach to networks, Cognitive’s capabilities will be built into what the company calls an “intelligent network.”

Cisco has said security is a major overarching element it wants to ensure across all five areas in which it is focused.
