Optiv Security announced today it acquired Decision Lab in a move to expand its big data and security analytics services.
Decision Lab also offers automation and orchestration services to a customer base that includes government agencies and enterprises worldwide.
The deal aims to accelerate Optiv's growth strategy and ride the wave of increasing security data that enterprises produce, Sean Catlett, Optiv's senior vice president of emerging services, said in a statement.
Optiv notes the Decision Lab acquisition is also expected to increase the company's staff of seasoned security experts and data scientists, as well as bolster its security analytics in the areas of incident response, insider threats, fraud, and anomaly detection. The Decision Lab transaction marks the second acquisition for Optiv this month, following its Conexsys purchase to increase its presence in the Canadian market.
