The addition of the Bricata team also provides deep engineering talent to help build future products in the growing NDR market.
“As organizations benefit from digitization and the move to the Cloud, they also face new risks and challenges from cyberattacks”, said Mark J.

Protecting Expanded Perimeters
OpenText can now collect and analyze data from all sources across cloud, network, endpoints, email, and webserver. Trends such as remote working, Shadow IT, and Cloud adoption require new technologies to help secure the ever-expanding enterprise perimeters.
With the combination of Bricata’s NDR technology and OpenText’s Endpoint Detection & Response, Digital Forensics, and Incident Response, security teams have 360-degree visibility across network and endpoint to detect threats, conduct root cause analysis across their network, and bring systems back to a trusted state.
Using smart sensors, Bricata’s NDR eliminates blind spots and delivers complete network visibility in support of comprehensive internal investigations. This level of inspection allows users to intelligently capture and analyze network data to support any type of internal investigations such as HR-driven investigations or fraud. The Smart Sensor also automatically examines files transmitted within the network for malicious attributes.
The Bricata purchase price and current revenues are not material to OpenText financials and are not disclosed.
