Zscaler will acquire startup Smokescreen Technologies for an undisclosed sum.
Smokescreen is a provider of active defense and deception technology. Zscaler CEO Jay Chaudhry told investors this week that the plan is to integrate Smokescreen's technology with its Zscaler Internet Access (ZIA) and Zscaler Private Access (ZPA) solutions to improve their active defense capabilities.
The transaction is subject to standard closing conditions and is expected to close during Zscaler's fiscal fourth quarter ending July 31.
Zscaler said last month it would buy Trustdome, a Cloud Infrastructure Entitlement Management (CIEM) company.
