HelpSystems To Acquire Alert Logic

HelpSystems announced today it has signed a merger agreement to acquire Alert Logic, a well-known leader in managed detection and response (MDR) services. Alert Logic works as a seamless extension of security teams, augmenting existing cybersecurity resources and technology to safeguard on-premise, cloud, SaaS, and hybrid infrastructures. The company’s MDR solution focuses on alleviating the intense pressure organizations face due to the increase in cyberattacks and the notable shortage of skilled professionals available to prevent and remediate them. Alert Logic will become a cornerstone of HelpSystems’ comprehensive cybersecurity portfolio.

Businesses of all sizes look to Alert Logic to establish a hybrid IT approach to meeting their cybersecurity goals and applicable compliance mandates. Alert Logic is the industry leader in MDR for cloud environments, with more than 4,000 customers and an extensive partner ecosystem around the globe. Its comprehensive coverage paired with human oversight enables organizations to meet key regulatory requirements, including PCI DSS, HIPAA HITECH, GDPR, Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX), SOC 2, NIST 800-171 and 800-53, ISO 27001, COBIT, and more.

Guggenheim Securities, LLC advised Alert Logic on the sale transaction; Kirkland & Ellis served as legal advisor.
