Cybersecurity vendor Palo Alto Networks finally made it official Monday: It’ s acquired Israeli-rooted security firm Cyvera for about $ 200 million.

I’m not sure what the holdup was but El Haaretz reported that the deal, worth about $ 190 million was nearly done in mid February. At that time Palo Alto did not return calls for comment and Cyvera had no comment

In a statement, Palo Alto Networks CEO Mark McLaughlin said Cyvera “extends our next-generation security platform with a very innovative approach to preventing attacks on the endpoint.”

Cyvera, based in Tel Aviv, prides itself on its ability to find and stop “zero-day attacks” — those  for which there is no signature to look out for.
