Bricata provides NDR security technologies that analyze network traffic for vulnerabilities and threats. That reduces the number of false-positive security alerts while responding to actual threats in real-time. The addition of the Bricata team also provides engineering talent to help build future products in the growing NDR market.
OpenText isn’t saying how much it’s paying for Bricata.
Mark Barrenechea is OpenText’s CEO and CTO.

“As organizations benefit from digitization and the move to the cloud, they also face new risks and challenges from cyberattacks,” he said “The addition of the deep-visibility NDR solutions provides increased protection for our customers, allowing them to focus on productivity.”
OpenText can now collect and analyze data from all sources across cloud, network, endpoints, email and web servers. With the combination of Bricata’s NDR technology and OpenText’s endpoint detection and 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 restore systems.
Using smart sensors, Bricata’s NDR eliminates blind spots and delivers network visibility to support internal investigations. This allows users to capture and analyze network data to support any type of internal investigations. The smart sensor also automatically examines files transmitted within the network for malicious attributes.
Earlier this month at OpenText World, OpenText launched its new “Bye Bye Blue” initiative, saying it’s time for everybody to drop IBM and choose it instead.
OpenText also launched its biggest product release with Cloud Editions 21.4, and unveiled its zero initiative. It addresses diversity and inclusion, sustainability and the environment.
