Dell® finalizes acquisition of SonicWALL®
Dell Inc. has completed its acquisition of SonicWALL Inc., a provider of advanced network security, secure remote access, e-mail security, backup and recovery, and management and reporting.
Over the past few years, Dell has embarked on a major campaign to develop its software and services portfolio, particularly related to cloud computing, consumerization of the enterprise (BYOD) and the need for constant and pervasive access to data and applications from any location.
Under Dell’s leadership, SonicWALL is expected to continue offering comprehensive security solutions that fully leverage its technologies in the firewall and Unified Threat Management (UTM) spaces.
The deal was announced in March. The SonicWALL acquisition expands Dell’s security software and services portfolio. Dell expects the deal to be a contributing factor to generate revenue on a non-GAAP basis in the second half of this year.
John Swainson, president, Dell Software Group, commented, “The combination of SonicWALL with Dell’s existing security offerings and broad market reach will help customers securely manage their data, securely manage consumer devices being brought into their enterprise, and securely expand their applications to the cloud.”
