SonicWall acquires security service edge firm Banyan Security to boost SASE offerings

Cybersecurity service provider SonicWall has announced the acquisition of security service edge (SSE) solutions Banyan Security.

The company says the acquisition strengthens SonicWall’s portfolio by adding zero trust security relied on by fortune 100 companies to small businesses who are replacing legacy architectures for SSE solutions, including Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA).

“Cybersecurity’s focus is shifting to more dynamic solutions that can adapt to the ever-evolving landscape of threats in the cloud age,” says Bob Vankirk, president and CEO of SonicWall.

“For years, firewalls have been the cornerstone of cybersecurity defenses. However, with the rise of cloud computing and secure access service edge (SASE), the industry is shifting its focus to more comprehensive and flexible approaches that include SSE and ZTNA as a necessity. Together, SonicWall and Banyan Security will provide cloud-based secure access service edge (SASE) solutions that empower partners to deliver a security architecture for any stage of their customers’ evolving cloud journey.”

Banyan’s technology further extends SonicWall’s portfolio to the cloud and provides partners and their customers with more flexibility, which is key to the continued development of SonicWall’s cybersecurity platform, the company notes.

“For decades, SonicWall has played a pivotal role in supporting their partners by delivering leading cybersecurity solutions,” adds Joshua Skeens, CEO of Logically.

“They’re now extending that to the cloud as the demand for cloud-first strategies is evident. As businesses embark on their cloud journey, they will require hybrid deployments which SonicWall is ideally positioned to provide, and we are excited to be working alongside SonicWall as we empower businesses to thrive in this new era.”

The company says that organizations have been driven to adopt zero trust models to modernize security, often as a replacement for legacy architectures, in a bid to secure the interconnected access surface.

The announcement follows SonicWall’s acquisition of Solutions Granted in 2023, which helped arm the channel with managed detection and response services for managed service providers and managed security service providers.
