Cyxtera Technologies to Acquire Immunity

Deal will bring penetration testing products and services to Cyxtera's threat analytics portfolio.

Cyxtera Technologies today announced that it plans to acquire Immunity in a move to blend offensive and defensive security solutions into one portfolio.

Cyxtera, a cloud security and analytics company, plans to fold Immunity's penetration testing tool Innuendo, assessment tool Canvas, and attack and assessment services into its portfolio of threat analytics solutions.

"The advantages of combining Immunity's products and services with Cyxtera's portfolio creates an opportunity to approach cybersecurity in a truly holistic manner. The expertise developed in both companies is highly complementary," Christopher Day, chief cybersecurity officer of Cyxtera, said in a statement. "It will strengthen our ability to help customers better secure their infrastructure."

The transaction is expected to close in the first quarter, pending regulatory approval. The companies did not disclose the Immunity purchase price.
