(Reuters) – Cybersecurity firm Palo Alto Networks (PANW.N) said on Tuesday it would acquire Silicon Valley-based cloud services company CloudGenix Inc for about $420 million in cash.
The acquisition comes at a time when many of the U.S. companies scale back operations due to the coronavirus outbreak.
The deal is expected to close during Palo Alto’s fiscal fourth quarter.
CloudGenix co-founders Kumar Ramachandran, Mani Ramasamy and Venkataraman Anand will join Palo Alto.
