Backed by Sunstone partners, Avertium, a managed security and strategic consulting enterprise, acquires 1440 Security
FREMONT, CA: Avertium, an industry-leading managed security and strategic consulting partner to mid-to-large enterprises, acquires the nationally recognized managed security service provider, 1440 Security, with a Colorado-based 24/7 security operations center. This acquisition enhances Avertium's extended detection and response (XDR) approach and advanced threat management expertise under its managed security service offerings. It also adds a third CyberOps Center of Excellence to Avertium's existing two centers in Arizona and Tennessee.
"What impressed us most about the team at 1440 Security is their exemplary culture of integrity and the overwhelmingly positive customer feedback about the company's commitment to keeping customers' networks, data and other critical assets safe," said Jeff Schmidt, CEO of Avertium. "This shared singular focus along with their technical LogRhythm expertise make them excellent additions to the Avertium team," he added.
1440 Security has made to the MSSP Alert Top 200 MSSPs list in 2019; since then, it has nurtured a loyal customer base and a reputation for excellence in managed security, especially during the deployment, management, and configuration of the NextGen SIEM Platform by LogRhythm.
"Cybersecurity, specifically SIEM and SOC-as-a-Service, is our business and we are constantly looking for ways to deliver more value to our customers," said Brian Bilodeau, president of 1440 Security. "For 1440 Security, this acquisition means continued investment in core cyber competencies while expanding what we can offer existing customers with Avertium's extensive suite of cybersecurity consulting services – from governance and compliance to strategic advisory services to digital forensics and incident response."
