Managed security services company TruSecure has acquired Vigilinx for an undisclosed sum.
Vigilinx provides a wide array of digital security services such as managed antivirus, firewall and virtual private network (VPN) services, penetration testing and security intelligence.
The deal adds Vigilinx's technology and know-how to TruSecure's roster of security consulting services, including managed security services, penetration testing, security design services and product certification through its independently operated ICSA Labs division.
Although specifics on the merger of Vigilinx with TruSecure's operations were not available, TruSecure did outline its plans for Vigilinx's IntelliShield security intelligence services.
IntelliShield combines workflow features with a database of threats and vulnerabilities and customised filters. The system is designed to provide customers with early warnings of product security vulnerabilities, viruses, worms and hacking techniques.
TruSecure will use IntelliShield as a platform to deliver its own security services in a way that is customised to the needs of individual customers.
Using IntelliShield, TruSecure customers will receive alerts relevant to the technology and applications they have deployed. Those alerts will be rated for urgency, severity, and credibility, according to information on the TruSecure Web site.
