Juniper Networks bought Mykonos Software, a security vendor, for $80 million.

In a statement, Juniper said that it will use Mykonos' intrusion deception systems to bolster its security platform. Mykonos aims to detect an attacker before he gets started.

Specifically, Mykonos' software focuses on Web application attacks and zero-day threats. Mykonos software does the following:

  • Watches an attack live and records it.
  • Offers a simple management pane.
  • Ends attacks quickly.

Juniper said that Mykonos will be used to protect devices, applications, network and cloud computing infrastructure.

The deal closed Feb. 13.
