Oracle acquires DDoS mitigation software maker Zenedge

By : |February 19, 2018 0

Oracle is acquiring hybrid security startup Zenedge that provides firewalls and denial-of-service mitigation to enterprises. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Zenedge helps businesses secure applications and databases from malicious web traffic via its web application firewall (WAF) and distributed denial of service (DDoS) mitigation products. Zenedge claims that its products can lead to a 99-percent reduction in dangerous website traffic and a 99.75-percent improvement in page load times.

Zenedge’s adds to Oracle’s overall work to build out its cloud platform, providing customers with security features for their applications that help them stay secure and running in a hostile web environment. Zenedge fits in with the company’s previous acquisition of Dyn, a domain name system (DNS) provider that helps determine how traffic gets directed between different applications.


“Customers demand enterprise-grade infrastructure to run their critical business systems in the cloud,” said Don Johnson, SVP of product development at Oracle. “The combination with Zenedge equips Oracle Cloud Infrastructure with integrated, next-generation network and infrastructure security, to address modern security threats.”

The news comes on the heels of an announcement from Oracle last week that it plans to add 12 new cloud regions to its global computing infrastructure, building out the company’s product portfolio.

Zenedge will continue to operate its products during the acquisition process, and the company will continue to take on new customers. Oracle said that it plans to accelerate Zenedge’s feature and product development, as well as integrate the company’s services more deeply with its own cloud portfolio.
