Congratulations to Talon, a pioneer of the Enterprise Browser category, on Palo Alto Networks’ intent to acquire the company!
There are thousands of SaaS applications being accessed via the browser on managed and unmanaged devices in modern organizations, creating serious gaps in enterprise security programs. Malicious actors know this and actively target these applications and the browser to seize the opportunity of accessing sensitive corporate data and launching attacks.
Talon protects exactly against this. They are one of the few companies that understand the power of Chromium, the platform that Google Chrome is built on, and how it has become the standard browsing engine that users know, love, and favor today.
Talon took that browsing engine and built an enterprise-grade security solution within the browser itself, creating a truly secure workspace for users that both powers and protects them. For security teams, Talon’s technology delivers unprecedented visibility and control over the very point where their users interact with corporate applications and data: the browser.
Palo Alto Networks’ acquisition of Talon will enable users to securely access business applications from any device, including mobile and non-corporate devices, while delivering seamless user experiences. A true win-win scenario.
Ken Elefant and Eric Hilton met with Talon’s co-founders Ofer Ben-Noon and Ohad Bobrov in 2021, after originally meeting Ofer in the early days of his prior company, Argus. Ken and Eric were impressed with the team’s vision for the enterprise browser category and their focus on building best-in-class technology. Since partnering with Talon, the Sorenson team has enjoyed working alongside the company to help hire key leaders, make introductions to customers, and provide strategic financial guidance.
“I’ve been incredibly impressed with Talon’s ability to execute on their customer’s needs. Companies that put their customers at the forefront of their business will always come out on top, and that’s exactly what Talon has done,” shares Ken Elefant at Sorenson. “I am excited for Talon to continue to execute on their mission with Palo Alto Networks.”
