PRESS RELEASE — DALLAS/PRNewswire/ — Critical Start today announced it has completed the acquisition of Advanced Threat Analytics, a next generation security analytics platform, for an undisclosed amount of cash and stock. All the employees of Advanced Threat Analytics have joined Critical Start as part of its managed security services business.
With the addition of the Advanced Threat Analytics platform, Critical Start is able to offer its customers a differentiated approach to managed security services resulting in some key benefits:
“The acquisition of Advanced Threat Analytics signals to the market that we are committed to disrupting and reinventing today’s managed security services market where providers typically operate using a hidden, ‘black box’ model that still buries enterprise customers in reviewing and responding to an overwhelming number of security alerts,” said Rob Davis, CEO, Critical Start. “In addition, legacy MSSPs are known for poor customer service and effectiveness so our focus is on redefining the managed security services experience for customers to one that is secure, transparent, mobile and adds value to their business.”
