Last week was an exciting one here at SilverSky. We publicly announced that we have acquired the Managed Security Services division of StillSecure. This marks the latest in a series of major investments we have made recently as we continue to innovate and develop market-leading cloud-based software designed to secure our customers’ most important information. You can read all about the deal here, but here’s what some folks in the industry are saying about our news
- StillSecure co-founder and former exec Alan Shimel notes in a Network World column, “I have watched [StillSecure] continue to grow and move the company forward. So I was very happy to see the MSSP division find a long-term home with SilverSky… I am happy to see this new development in the StillSecure lifecycle.” He goes on to say, “SilverSky also inherits the great partner/channel relationships that were built over the years…SilverSky has some great security services and will add the StillSecure offerings to the mix.”
- Forrester analyst Ed Ferrara explains, "This is a way for [SilverSky] to extend their business in vertical markets and get additional service capacity from StillSecure as well as enhance their service offerings to better serve their clients.”
- MSPAlliance’s Charles Weaver notes that MSPAlliance member SilverSky will “continue to fully support StillSecure customers and channel partners, providing them full access to its comprehensive portfolio of software and managed services. StillSecure customers and partners will also have access to SilverSky’s Security Operations Center (SOC) and its team of security professionals and practitioners.”
- SilverSky CEO Tim Harvey is quoted in MSPMentor saying, “StillSecure’s world-class team, innovative technologies and services fit perfectly into SilverSky’s portfolio and existing customers of both companies stand to benefit greatly through this acquisition. This deal allows us to further realize our strategic objectives for expanding our product portfolio and broadening our domain expertise to further assist our customers and partners.”
