Industry veterans acquire CensorNet
Next generation cloud security company CensorNet has been taken over by a group of industry veterans, led by new chief executive and chairman Ed Macnair.
The acquisition of the Bristol-headquartered company would accelerate product development to seize the growing opportunity for cloud services and applications, Mcnair said.
Macnair and his board of directors – made up of Dr Steve Garnett, Craig Probert and Tim Cagle – all have track records in developing and leading technology organisations.
Macnair was founder and chief executive of SaaSID, a UK-based single-sign on and application security vendor, which was acquired by Intermedia Inc in 2013. He was previously chief executive of Marshal, a global IT security company which merged with 8e6 Technologies to form M86 Security.
"Today's cloud security solutions need to be able to provide in-depth discovery capabilities and detailed analytics around internet and web application usage as well as providing robust security to protect against web-bourne threats," he said.
"CensorNet is well-positioned to help address these challenges and we are passionate about the opportunity to bring this exciting technology to a wider market."
