Palo Alto Networks To Acquire Cider Security, For $195M

Palo Alto Networks, a Santa Clara, CA-based cybersecurity company, acquired Cider Security, a Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel-based provider of application security and software supply chain security solutions.

The amount of the deal was approximately $195m in cash, excluding the value of replacement equity awards, subject to adjustment. The proposed acquisition is expected to close during Palo Alto Networks’ second quarter of fiscal 2023, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions.
