This past summer Sunnyvale, CA-based Niara launched a tool to detect existing and unknown ransomware.

HPE said Niara will operate within HPE’s Aruba unit.

“Adding Niara to the HPE Aruba ClearPass portfolio advances HPE’s Intelligent Edge strategy for transforming workplace and operational experiences within the fast-growing wired and wireless network infrastructure market for traditional and IoT devices,” HPE said in a release.

After a security incident is discovered by Niara’s platform, a ClearPass network access policy can automatically isolate or disconnect a user or device from the network to prevent access to sensitive data, HPE said.
