Cisco Buys Duo for $2.35B to Push Security Beyond the Enterprise Network

Duo will help Cisco provide enterprises with secure user access, even for users with personal devices on public networks.

With Cisco's $2.35 billion acquisition of Duo Security, the networking company is looking to help enterprises provide secure user access, even for users on public networks with personal devices.

Duo provides identity verification and audits the health of devices before granting access to applications, on traditional enterprise networks and public networks as well, Cisco said announcing the deal Thursday morning.

Join us in Lisbon on December 4-6 to meet with fellow experts as we define the future of next-gen communications and how to make it profitable.

The acquisition is part of Cisco's increased emphasis on security, which is a small but fast-growing part of the vendor's overall business.
