Santa Clara-headquartered Palo Alto was co-founded in 2005 by Nir Zuk, one of the first employees of Check Point Software Technologies Ltd. The company has been on something of an acquisition spree this year, paying $300 million in cash for cloud defense startup Evident.io in March and an unspecified sum for Israel-based endpoint detection company Cyber Secdo Ltd. in April.

 

 

Palo Alto stated it will combine RedLock and Evident's technology into a single product expected to reach the market early next year.
