Cisco completes Twingo acquisition

The networking giant has completed a $5 million acquisition of the privately held start-up.

Cisco Systems announced Tuesday it has completed a $5 million acquisition of privately held Twingo Systems of Mountain View, Calif. The networking giant first announced its intention to buy the start-up on March 12.

Twingo provides desktop security software for Secure Socket Layer Virtual Private Networks, or SSL VPNs, which are used to connect remote workers to corporate networks via a standard Web browser. The Twingo software is designed to protect companies by fully erasing history files, temporary files, caches, cookies, e-mail file attachments and other downloaded data at the close of an SSL VPN user session. Cisco plans to incorporate Twingo's Virtual Secure Desktop into its existing SSL VPN products, beginning with the Cisco VPN 3000 Concentrator series.
