HelpSystems Acquires BeyondSecurity to Extend Security Portfolio

By Luke Bellos

Business software developer HelpSystems recently announced the acquisition of BeyondSecurity, a automation-focused cybersecurity solutions provider. As part of this merging of talents, HelpSystems intends to integrate BeyondSecurity’s portfolio into the company’s own offerings, providing customers with highly advanced security options for business operations.

BeyondSecurity’s software focuses on finding vulnerabilities within IT networks and applications, which has become increasingly difficult to manage manually due to the hybrid work environments that are becoming more commonplace. Automated security features provide a much needed extra layer of protection for network administrators, which assists in finding unusual patterns of behavior that humans would likely miss.

"Our global customers trust us to provide them with powerful, reliable security software to protect their data and infrastructure from malicious adversaries," said Kate Bolseth, CEO, HelpSystems. "Beyond Security meets strong demand from overburdened IT and security professionals whose hybrid environments grow more complex every day. We're pleased to help customers get control of this and are delighted to welcome the team of vulnerability experts and their well-known solutions to HelpSystems."

HelpSystems will be merging BeyondSecurity’s solutions into the company’s own security portfolio, including applications such as Cobalt Strike, Digital Defense and Core Security.

"Beyond Security's vulnerability management platform will continue to provide detection across networks, applications, endpoints, and the cloud for our fast-growing customer base as part of HelpSystems," added Aviram Jenik, Beyond Security co-founder and CEO. “We are excited by the endless possibilities this combination provides and look forward to working together to help organizations around the world understand and address information security."
