HelpSystems has acquired cybersecurity firm Digital Defense to boost its cyber portfolio.
Digital Defense has developed ah cloud-native vulnerability scanning engine gives organizations the ability to proactively detect infrastructure security gaps and take effective remediation steps to safeguard against internal and external cyberthreats.
“Every day we have customers who want to know what they can do to strengthen their security postures and protect their employees, customers, and sensitive information from malicious actors,” said Kate Bolseth, CEO at HelpSystems.
“The addition of Digital Defense offers threat-weary IT teams the capabilities they need to increase infrastructure security on two fronts: via leading-edge vulnerability management technology as well as seasoned pen testing resources to broaden our existing expertise. We are so happy to welcome the team and the award-winning products they’ve developed to HelpSystems.”
Digital Defense will join Core Security and Cobalt Strike in enabling HelpSystems to offer a comprehensive, best-in-class security assessment toolkit.
“Digital Defense will continue to protect the ever-expanding IT underpinnings of thousands of organisations as part of HelpSystems,” said Larry Hurtado, president and CEO at Digital Defense.
“This powerful combination not only enables our customers to take advantage of HelpSystems’ broad security and automation solutions, but it also gives us more horsepower to continue to advance how organizations around the world understand and address information security.”
In January, HelpSystems announced that it had acquired FileCatalyst, a file transfer acceleration company, to strengthen its cybersecurity offering.
