By Deepika Mala, TMCnet Contributor
By offering a transparently priced, complete solution available as a software download or a turnkey appliance direct from their website, Untangle aims to simplify unified threat management for network administrators and IT decision-makers.
Officials said that with this acquisition, Untangle will be able to expand its reach into larger businesses and schools. It will also help kick off Untangle's new merger and acquisition strategy.
"As a leader in the SMB market, Untangle has always followed a customer-centric, web-driven approach for its IT offerings," said Bob Walters, CEO of Untangle, in a press statement. "We intend to bring this same spirit of simplification to the comprehensive network traffic analysis and control solution offered by Cymphonix in the medium business market."
The company recently announced the release of Untangle 9.4, the latest version of its award-winning multi-function firewall software, which has seen use in the hospitality, retail, education and small/medium business verticals.
Meanwhile, the new acquisition will give Cymphonix access to additional technology, web-based infrastructure, and investment capital. Cymphonix products will continue to be marketed and sold by Cymphonix via their website and from channel partners.
"Cymphonix has been helping medium businesses and larger campuses make their networks run better for nearly a decade," said Walters. "They give customers the ability to examine every bit of data running across the wire and make it easy to ensure a rock-solid, high-availability, lightning-fast connection to the Internet. We believe that the strength of the Cymphonix offering combined with Untangle's go-to-market model will accelerate the growth of both organizations."
