Palo Alto Networks to Buy Enterprise Browser Startup Talon Cyber Security


Palo Alto Networks has finalized an acquisition agreement to purchase Talon Cyber Security, a pioneer in the field of enterprise browser technology. With Talon’s Enterprise Browser, customers can securely access business applications from any device, including mobile and other non-corporate devices, while enjoying a seamless user experience.

Enterprise security teams would prioritize managed device security in today’s networked digital environments, stated Palo alto Networks. Simultaneously, an ever-greater quantity of unmanaged devices would establish connections with corporate applications, gaining access to confidential data with almost no protection and no controls or visibility. According to Palo Alto, attackers seize this chance with great speed. Easily taking advantage of vulnerabilities in unmanaged devices, they may get sensitive data without trying to go over enterprise-level protection on devices that are under administration.

Talon Cyber Security’s cutting-edge solution would work in tandem with Palo Alto’s own Prisma SASE offering.

“Hundreds of SaaS and online apps are used by the typical organization, which means that the majority of work is now done via browsers,” said Lee Klarich, Chief Product Officer at Palo Alto Networks. “With Talon, businesses may utilize an Enterprise Browser to safeguard all work-related activities without affecting personal device use or user privacy. Palo Alto Networks will be able to securely connect all users and devices to all apps, including private applications, and apply consistent security regardless of the user’s identity or the device they use for work, thanks to the integration of Talon with Prisma SASE. The statement we made today demonstrates our unwavering faith in the resilience of the Israeli cybersecurity ecosystem as well as our dedication to our expanding Israeli team.”

“BYOD presents a productivity benefit, but it also poses a serious security concern. Security teams may now have complete visibility and control over all SaaS and online activity linked to work on any device, including unmanaged and personal endpoints, thanks to Talon’s Enterprise Browser,” said Anand Oswal, SVP and GM at Palo Alto Networks. “To enable users to safely access corporate applications from any location, on any device, SASE solutions must adapt to protect unmanaged devices using the same uniform security measures used to managed devices. The special fusion of Talon and Prisma SASE will revolutionize how businesses handle the difficulties posed by the contemporary, networked digital environments.”

Established by businessmen Ofer Ben-Noon and Ohad Bobrov, Talon was first in the esteemed Innovation Sandbox competition held by the RSA Conference in 2022. Following closure, the co-founders will continue to be the team leaders when they join Palo Alto Networks’ Prisma SASE team.

“The proliferation of distributed work models has created a dynamic threat landscape that legacy solutions are ill-equipped to handle,” said Ofer Ben-Noon, co-founder and CEO of Talon. “To meet the growing demands of our customers for safe access across all platforms and to satisfy their evolving preferences for browser-based productivity, we designed Talon to provide enterprises with robust last-mile security. To provide smooth, recognizable user experiences together with enterprise-grade security that complements the excellent security that Prisma SASE already provides, Talon’s Enterprise Browser was developed. Palo Alto Networks is not only the perfect partner to help us expedite our journey, but their dedication to innovation in Israel is also very encouraging and aligns well with Talon’s goal of achieving the greatest results for both our clients and workers.”
