CrowdStrike announced that it acquired SaaS based cybersecurity service Secure Circle. Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but CrowdStrike said the acquisition will allow them to “extend Zero Trust security to data on the endpoint.”

CrowdStrike will be setting a new standard for endpoint based data protection by connecting Zero Trust enforcement to the device, the user identity and, with this acquisition, the data users are accessing and using. SecureCircle’s technology will help them “modernize data protection and enable customers to enforce Zero Trust at the device level, the identity level, and at the data level.”
