Palo Alto Networks snaps up Talon to enhance enterprise browser security


Palo Alto Networks has announced its definitive agreement to acquire Talon Cyber Security, an Enterprise Browser technology pioneer.

Palo Alto Networks is renowned for its advanced security solutions, while Talon Cyber Security has gained recognition for its ground-breaking approach to securing browser-based enterprise work environments.

The acquisition by Palo Alto Networks is aimed at addressing the security risks associated with unmanaged devices accessing sensitive information in digital workplaces. Although the exact value of the deal is not specified, the strategic move is to integrate Talon’s Enterprise Browser with Palo Alto’s Prisma SASE, enhancing security across all devices.

Palo Alto Networks is at the forefront of cybersecurity, offering comprehensive solutions that protect systems and networks across the globe.

Talon Cyber Security, on the other hand, is changing the game with its Enterprise Browser, which provides robust security for work activity on any device, ensuring the safety of enterprise applications without infringing on user privacy.

This acquisition underscores Palo Alto Networks’ commitment to the strength of the Israeli cybersecurity ecosystem and its dedication to expanding its team in Israel. The integration of Talon’s Enterprise Browser with Prisma SASE promises a transformative approach to secure connectivity, applying consistent security to both managed and unmanaged devices.

The union of Talon’s innovative Enterprise Browser and Palo Alto’s Prisma SASE is a strategic response to the evolving threat landscape in distributed work models. By securing all SaaS and web application activity, they aim to deliver unparalleled protection in today’s connected digital environments.

Palo Alto Networks Chief Product Officer Lee Klarich said, “The average enterprise uses hundreds of SaaS and web applications, meaning that most work is now done primarily via the browser. Talon enables organizations to secure all work activity via an Enterprise Browser, without touching the personal usage of the device or impacting user privacy.”
