ARKOON : ARKOON Network Security announces a takeover deal for SkyRecon Systems


ARKOON Network Security announces today that an agreement has been signed with a view to acquiring the company SkyRecon Systems, a software publisher specialized in Intelligent Endpoint Security.

SkyRecon's StormShield technology, directly integrated in the endpoint operating system, offers a radically new approach to protect organizations using a single-client to mitigate all endpoint-related risks: software vulnerabilities, theft or loss of critical data, inappropriate use of personal applications, unauthorized connectivity, software attacks and intrusions, internal breaches.

From its inception, the SkyRecon offer was designed in an integrated manner to streamline the choice, deployment and administration of functionalities required for endpoint protection: anti-malware and anti-intrusion protection, anti-virus and anti-spyware, control of removable devices, data encryption, application control, wireless security and network access control.

In 2008, SkyRecon Systems generated a turnover of approximately ¤2m and employs a 27-strong workforce to date.

With this acquisition, following the MSI takeover in 2006, ARKOON Network Security endows itself with the means to consolidate its position as a major player on the security solutions market: network, communication, data and endpoint protection. It will also strengthen its foothold in the mid-market and key account customer segments through its network of partners.

The details of this acquisition will be published once this transaction has been finalized, an event scheduled for the end of October 2009.
