HelpSystems Buys Core Security Assets to Grow Infosec Portfolio

Acquisition will enable it to provide threat detection, pen testing, and other security tools to customers.

IT security firm HelpSystems has purchased assets of Core Security from SecureAuth in an effort to increase its cybersecurity offerings. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The technologies acquired include tools for identity governance and administration, penetration testing, threat detection, and vulnerability management. HelpSystems users will benefit from a broader set of security tools they can use to defend against internal and external threats, remain compliant with industry regulations, and accelerate operational efficiencies.

More than 900 businesses already use Core Security's applications; now HelpSystem's customers can consolidate their security tools to a single vendor.

In a statement, HelpSystems CEO Chris Heim noted how companies lack resources and tools they need to protect their assets around the clock. "We're now in a better position to fully support their initiatives across any platform with a multi-pronged approach to cybersecurity that gives busy IT/security professionals peace of mind," he said.
