AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Click Security, a leader in real-time security analytics, today announced it has acquired VisibleRisk, an Austin-based information security analytics company. Click Security and VisibleRisk will combine their products and expertise to enrich and accelerate actionable security intelligence solutions for enterprise–class customers.
“We have a lot of respect for this team’s talent and experience – and this will help us provide an even richer real time security analytics solution.”
For more than a decade, organizations have relied upon signature-based malware detection products for defense, and security event management systems to investigate attacks that got through – but typically months after the fact. This is driving an industry shift towards advanced technologies able to intelligently mine big security data for anomalous and malicious activity – automatically and in real-time. Click Security is focused on this shift, specifically enabling organizations to convert security big data into actionable intelligence.
VisibleRisk has significant experience providing enterprises with advanced security analysis – including flexible, advanced "hunting-based” analytics, custom threat intelligence, and incident response support – leading to faster and more accurate detection of incidents with a focus on reducing impact to the organization.
“The acquisition of VisibleRisk complements Click Security’s security intelligence arm, Click Labs, and also provides breadth and depth to our data ingest and security analytics technology development,” said Marc Willebeek-LeMair, Click Security’s Chief Executive Officer. “We have a lot of respect for this team’s talent and experience – and this will help us provide an even richer real time security analytics solution.”
“Together, VisibleRisk and Click Security can empower organizations to find and address a broader set of anomalies much faster and with greater situational awareness,” said Rocky DeStefano, founder and Chief Executive Officer of VisibleRisk. “Being able to team up with a another company here in Austin that shares a similar vision of how to support the defender of the enterprise is exciting."
VisibleRisk founder and CEO, Rocky DeStefano, will join Click Security’s leadership team as Vice President of Strategy and Technology. All other VisibleRisk personnel will become full-time employees of Click Security.
VisibleRisk operates as a security services firm with service offerings focused on advanced security analysis – including flexible, advanced "hunting-based” analytics, custom threat intelligence, and incident response support – leading to faster and more accurate detection of incidents with a focus on reducing impact to the organization.
