Fortinet Buys Cloud Security Firm OPAQ

The company plans to add zero-trust networking capabilities to its Secure Access Service Edge architecture.

Fortinet has acquired Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) provider OPAQ in a move to add SASE capabilities to the Fortinet Security Platform and Security Fabric architecture.

OPAQ brings the cloud-based Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) solution to Fortinet's existing SASE offering. The company has focused on security for widely distributed networks and endpoints, including branch offices, remote users, and IoT devices.

OPAQ's services are also designed to be partner-friendly, allowing MSSPs, integrators, VARs, and other sales-channel partners to add value and bring the services to market.

Financial details of the purchase were not disclosed.
