Cloud security firm Zscaler has announced the acquisition of Edge Networks, a company specializing in securing application-to-application communications within cloud environments and data centers. Edge Networks works to improve the security of so-called "east to west" communications between applications within a single enterprise infrastructure, rather than the "north to south" communications that tend to flow between companies and their suppliers, partners, and customers.

Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
