Cybersecurity software firm Datto has acquired threat detection and response company Infocyte.
Datto said the acquisition will enhance its security capabilities that protect, detect and respond to cyber threats found within endpoints and cloud environments.
“The addition of the Infocyte team and technologies augments our capabilities within the critical protect, detect, and respond stages outlined in the NIST organisational security framework,” said Tim Weller (pictured), CEO of Datto. “Infocyte’s offerings are complementary to Datto RMM Ransomware Detection and SaaS Defense application security products in those same NIST stages.”
Texas-based Infocyte offers expertise in endpoint detection and response (EDR) technologies and managed detection and response (MDR) services.
Its patented technologies continuously gather and correlate data from endpoints to identify potential threats, which the company says are monitored by a team of security analysts who respond in real-time to escalated cyberthreats.
“We look forward to joining Datto and to further securing the SMBs and other clients served by its vast network of MSPs around the world,” added Curtis Hutcheson, CEO of Infocyte. “Securing endpoints from advanced threats continues to be a top challenge for SMBs. With Datto’s partner community and growing security portfolio, we will be able to dramatically expand our reach to millions of endpoints under management, enabling Datto’s partners to provide their SMB customers with leading detection and response technologies.”
