F5 Networks Acquires Versafe To Help Customers Protect Against Online Fraud

F5 Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: FFIV) today announced that it has agreed to acquire Versafe Ltd., a provider of web anti-fraud, anti-phishing, and anti-malware solutions. Versafe TM advanced web and mobile protection solutions combined with its Security Operations Center (“SOC”) will provide greater breadth to F5’s existing security solutions.

“The acquisition supports F5’s vision and commitment to provide our customers with secure access to data and applications from any location; from any device,” said Karl Triebes, EVP of Product Development and CTO at F5. “Web applications are under increasing attack, which can lead to the theft of intellectual property, money, sensitive data and identity. Versafe provides comprehensive, real-time detection and protection for every user, every device and every browser.”

Versafe TM technology offers a natural extension to F5 ® security, access, and mobile solutions. F5’s Application Delivery Firewall solution benefits from new fraud, phishing, and malware protection. F5’s Identity and Access Management solution gains the ability to protect access credentials from being stolen by malware on the user’s device. F5’s Mobile Application and Device Management solution benefits from the ability to better protect business-to-consumer applications. Versafe has been an F5 Technology Alliance Partner with integration through F5’s iRules® technology.

“Businesses with mission critical and sensitive web operations need a trusted advisor for security and one with a deep understanding of cyber-crime,” said Eyal Gruner, Co-Founder of Versafe. “Together, F5 and Versafe plan to provide this support and deliver immediate protection against fraud, phishing, pharming, man-in-the-middle and malware threats. We look forward to joining the F5 team and bringing new security solutions to our customers.”

Versafe, based in Tel Aviv, Israel, offers solutions as a subscription service, protecting against fraud and the theft of intellectual property—without requiring any software download or device registration. Their solution detects malware-born fraud and other client side online threats for mobile and web applications, with the ability to scale from mission-critical enterprise applications to the largest transactional sites on the web.
