MER Group has announced that it has agreed the acquisition of Promisec Services, a developer of cyber solutions specialised in the collection of information from network endpoints and the detection, analysis and mitigation of security breaches and vulnerabilities. The company will be merged into MER’s Cyber and Intelligence Division.
In addition to bringing new customers, the Promisec acquisition will enable MER Group to enhance its ability to collect intelligence on both external and internal cyber threats faced by an organisational network and will expand the company’s technological capabilities in terms of security breach response.
The intelligence solutions and services provided by the company to help customers worldwide combat cyber threats include collecting comprehensive intelligence regarding threats originating in the Darknet, social media and other known sources. Promisec’s unique product collects information from endpoints of the organisational network, giving the organisation's information security officer full access to the site and the ability to analyse and handle vulnerabilities at those endpoints, without installing an agent. MER will use this solution to expose cyber threats to its customers' organisational networks, providing information security teams with a comprehensive view of their organisational cyber security that will enable them to take accurate and targeted action to respond to security breaches when needed.
"Promisec has vast knowledge and experience in cyber security and we are excited to incorporate its activities into our Cyber and Intelligence Division. This acquisition will enhance our ability to provide customers around the world, from both the private and government sectors, with a comprehensive solution for gathering extensive intelligence on cyber threats using information that is both external and internal to the organisation, and to carefully target these threats in order to close breaches in real time. We will begin by offering this new solution to customers worldwide who are leaders in the finance and communications sectors and are therefore constantly faced with many significant security threats," commented MER Group CEO Nir Lempert.
