Kansas tech company to acquire Lumeta of Somerset

By ,

Keying on the tech companies’ strategic synergies, FireMon of Overland Park, Kansas, said Tuesday it plans to acquire Somerset-based Lumeta.

Financial terms weren’t disclosed. The deal is expected to close this quarter, with Lumeta to continue to operate afterwards as a standalone business under its current president, Reggie Best.

A spinoff from Bell Labs founded in 2000, Lumeta helps large network operators identify cloud connections, routers, mobile devices and other network connections. FireMon’s platform has a good fit with such “situational awareness” paradigms, as it enables customers to automate security polices across network devices.

“Lumeta’s technology will enable FireMon customers to extend intent-based security to on-premise and cloud assets that were previously unknown and ensure the right security measures are in place in an automated way utilizing an organization’s existing security infrastructure,” Firemon said.

“Lumeta and FireMon share a vision for deeper integration across the security industry,” FireMon chief Satin Mirchandani.

“We look forward to working with FireMon to help its significant customer base overcome traditional challenges associated with network visibility, security policy compliance and securing today’s hybrid cloud environments,” Best said.
