BETHESDA, Md.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Fidelis Cybersecurity, the industry innovator in active extended detection and response (XDR) solutions trusted by Fortune 100 firms and governments worldwide, announced today the acquisition of CloudPassage, a pioneer in cloud security and compliance.

Halo’s extensive automation capabilities streamline and accelerate workflows between InfoSec and DevOps.

“The acquisition of CloudPassage extends our vision to unify endpoint, network, cloud and deception in a single platform so our customers can detect and respond to adversaries earlier in the attack lifecycle,” said Anup Ghosh, CEO of Fidelis Cybersecurity. “Adding the CloudPassage team and technology raises the bar in Active XDR. Not only can our customers get out in front of adversaries across hybrid environments, but they can now increase the cost and complexity to the adversary by incorporating deception technology.”

“Digital transformation is driving cloud adoption to new heights, and enterprises are fast recognizing that full-stack security is critical for cloud security,” said Carson Sweet, founder and CEO of CloudPassage. “The combination of Fidelis’ market-leading XDR capabilities and CloudPassage’s battle-tested CSPM, CWPP, and container security automation will give the market the powerful, unified solution it has needed to secure both cloud-based application stacks and the network connectivity that enables them.” Sweet will assume the role of Chief Cloud Security Officer at Fidelis Cybersecurity.

With over 70 employees, CloudPassage’s team will be integrated into the Fidelis Cybersecurity organization to continue Halo product development and integration with the Fidelis XDR platform.
