Cisco buys Rohati Systems

Rohati’s Transaction Networking System helps establish entitlements by controlling access through its Layer 7 access method

Cisco has just acquired start-up Rohati Systems, according to Rohati’s president and CEO Prashant Gandhi, who says the acquisition price is not disclosed.

The acquisition of the start-up represents a full circle in that Rohati was started by former Cisco engineers in 2008 to introduce an access-control device that’s an alternative to the traditional firewall.

Rohati’s Transaction Networking System helps establish entitlements by controlling through its Layer 7 access method who has what access to data on a per-transaction basis using context-specific attributes. Rohati has also been working on a version of its technology for use in cloud-based environments.

Rohati is based in Sunnyvale, Calif. Rohati’s president and CEO Prashant Gandhi says he intends to remain with Cisco with the completed acquisition, and that more details about the future of Rohati’s technology at Cisco will be forthcoming soon.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
