F-Secure buys Digital Assurance

2_180923-2130x2708F-Secure has written a cheque for the security consultancy Digital Assurance to get its products in front of more Brits.

This is the second consultancy it has acquired in the space of three months as the vendor takes steps to bolster its position in the market.

Digital Assurance has been providing security assessment services to firms operating in the public sector, financial, retail and defence markets.

It is not clear how much F-Secure paid for the outfit. The deal will add the consultancy’s customer base and market knowledge along with the F-Secure endpoint and cyber security products.

Jens Thonke, executive vice president of F-Secure’s cyber security services said:

“Digital Assurance has a deep understanding of cyber security, and delivers a broad range of security testing, consultancy and training services to organisations in both the private and public sectors. This acquisition will help F-Secure grow our successful service business to meet the ever-increasing demand for cyber security services.”

Digital Assurance founder and managing director Greg Jones said: “Over the past decade, we have built one of the UK’s leading security consultancies and worked together with many customers delivering leading edge security assessments.”

This is the second similar deal F-Secure has done this year. F-Secure wrote a cheque to vertical player Inverse Path, another consultancy that had a formidable reputation in the security service space.
