Software company HelpSystems has agreed to purchase managed detection and response firm Alert Logic for an undisclosed fee.
Founded in 2002, Alert Logic is a SaaS-enabled MDR provider that helps to protect organisations and empower users to resolve whatever threats arise. The company has locations in Texas, Cardiff, London and Cali, Columbia.
According to the two firms, Alert Logic – which claims more than 4,000 customers around the world – will become a ‘cornerstone’ of HelpSystems cybersecurity portfolio.
HelpSystems CEO Kate Bolseth said, “The speed of change in the cybersecurity environment requires HelpSystems to stay abreast of rapidly evolving macro trends and the tools and services our customers need to succeed. The lack of skilled cybersecurity professionals means enterprises everywhere are increasingly looking to outsource this function to a reliable partner.
“Alert Logic is a respected leader in this capacity, and we’re so pleased to welcome this team of experts to the HelpSystems family.”
