Microsoft acquires cloud security company Adallom

Microsoft acquires cloud security company Adallom
Acquisition announced on Adallom's website
The Redmond giant completes a second purchase this month by adding Adallom to the list - an innovator in cloud security that has been founded only three years ago.

Less than a week ago, Microsoft acquired enterprise analytics company VoloMetrix. Now, the time has come for "an innovator in cloud security and a leader in helping customers protect their critical assets across cloud applications," namely Adallom. 

A popup on Adallom's official website reveals the news, also mentioning the company started with "a vision to make it easy to keep your data safe in the cloud" and that goal has been achieved. Becoming a part of Microsoft gives Adallom "the opportunity to help many more customers take advantage of cloud applications without compromising security."

Microsoft's official blog post about the acquisition gives a few additional details about the future of Adallom. Their solution already works with Office 365, but soon "will complement existing offerings that Microsoft makes available today as part of Office 365 and the Enterprise Mobility Suite (EMS)."

As it always happens with Microsoft's smaller corporate deals, the financial terms have not been disclosed. Now that VoloMetrix and Adallom have joined the Microsoft family remains to see who is next.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
