HPE Acquires Security Analytics Provider Niara

HPE will combine Niara’s behavioral analytics software with Aruba’s ClearPass network security portfolio.

Hewlett Packard Enterprise has announced the acquisition of Niara Inc., a Sunnyvale, California-based provider of behaviorial security analytics software. Niara will operate within HPE Aruba to enhance the company’s ClearPass network security portfolio for wired and wireless network infrastructure. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

“With this transaction, we are continuing to innovate at the Intelligent Edge with software-defined solutions to better protect our customers’ business and IoT data,” says Keerti Melkote, senior vice president and general manager, HPE Aruba. “With over 20 billion IoT devices expected to be connected to networks by 2020, security is the number one concern for our customers. Combining Niara’s next-generation behavior analytics software with Aruba’s ClearPass network security portfolio will deliver the industry’s most complete visibility and attack detection system.”

Niara’s User and Entity Behavioral Analytics (UEBA) solution leverages machine learning and big data analytics to better protect against next-generation attacks. The behavioral analytics software automates the detection of attacks and risky behaviors inside an organization and reduces the time needed for security teams to investigate and respond to security events.

“Integrating Niara’s advanced behavioral analytics with ClearPass is a natural extension that will now deliver network-wide, real time visibility and predictive assessment of potential risks inside the enterprise. We also are excited to elevate our relationship from a ClearPass Exchange integration partner, to directly contributing to Aruba’s growth,” says Sriram Ramachandran, CEO and co-founder of Niara.

HPE’s latest acquisition comes just over two weeks after it announced a definitive agreement to purchase hyperconverged infrastructure vendor SimpliVity for $650 million.
