Lumension Announces The Completed Acquisition Of CoreTrace Corporation

Asset Acquisition strengthens Lumension's software capabilities, patent/IP portfolio and leadership in the application control space

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Nov. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Lumension, a global leader in endpoint management and security, today announced the completed asset acquisition of CoreTrace Corporation, an innovative application control software provider.  Austin-based CoreTrace delivers solutions that prevent the execution of malware and unknown executables.  The acquisition will enhance Lumension's application control feature set, grow its software and patent/IP portfolio and extend Lumension's growing customer, OEM and reseller bases.

The rise of advanced persistent attacks and weaponized malware has resulted in a new generation of widely distributed malware.  In upcoming State of the Endpoint Lumension-sponsored research to be released in early December, researchers identified growing alarm among IT security professionals related to advanced persistent threats (APTs). Understanding this new threat environment, Lumension has strengthened its leadership position in the endpoint management and security space by acquiring the assets of CoreTrace Corporation, and further consolidating market share in the application control space.

"The threat of advanced persistent attacks is growing at a significant rate," said Pat Clawson, Chairman and CEO of Lumension. "Look at oil operators in the middle east who have suffered devastating cyber attacks. With this rise in advanced persistent threats, and weaponized malware, along with the fact that Gartner projects[i] that 'by 2015, more than 50% of enterprises will have instituted 'default deny' policies' that restrict the applications users can install,' Lumension felt a strategic acquisition of CoreTrace would further equip both current and prospective customers in the ever-evolving threat landscape and cement Lumension's leadership in next generation technologies. We are thrilled to have CoreTrace on board to continue our drive to advanced, persistent protection for organizations of all sizes."

With the acquisition of CoreTrace assets, Lumension will add more than 130 customers, key development staff, and additional OEM and reseller partners.

Key Facts:

  • Lumension acquires key IP and patent portfolio from CoreTrace.
  • Lumension will likely integrate key aspects of CoreTrace's technology into Lumension® Application Control and continue to offer Lumension Application Control through the Lumension Endpoint Management Security Suite.
  • Lumension will continue to provide technical and support services to CoreTrace's current application control commercial customers.
  • Lumension will provide existing CoreTrace customers with a seamless upgrade path to Lumension's endpoint management platform once key features of the CoreTrace technology are integrated.
  • Lumension will likely continue to offer the CoreTrace Bouncer® product through existing commercial sales channels.

A financial analyst briefing will be held at 11:30 a.m. EST on Wednesday, Nov. 7. RSVP is required; please contact Kim Doyle at [email protected] or 480-444-1229 for dial-in instructions.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

While many government agencies have embraced the idea of employing cloud computing as a tool for increasing the efficiency and flexibility of IT, many still struggle with large scale adoption. The challenge is mainly attributed to the federated structure of these agencies as well as the immaturity of brokerage and governance tools and models. Initiatives like FedRAMP are a great first step toward solving many of these challenges but there are a lot of unknowns that are yet to be tackled. In hi...

The cloud market growth today is largely in public clouds. While there is a lot of spend in IT departments in virtualization, these aren’t yet translating into a true “cloud” experience within the enterprise. What is stopping the growth of the “private cloud” market? In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Nara Rajagopalan, CEO of Accelerite, explored the challenges in deploying, managing, and getting adoption for a private cloud within an enterprise. What are the key differences between wh...
One of the hottest areas in cloud right now is DRaaS and related offerings. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Dale Levesque, Disaster Recovery Product Manager with Windstream's Cloud and Data Center Marketing team, will discuss the benefits of the cloud model, which far outweigh the traditional approach, and how enterprises need to ensure that their needs are properly being met.
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...

He also discussed the implementation of microservices in data and application integrat...
Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically. Containers provide the right abstraction for microservices and many cloud platforms have integrated them into deployment pipelines.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
