Whall, CEO of ADT, who said the new brand will be focused on enterprise and mid- market businesses with Managed Detection and Response (MDR) services to combat advanced cyber- threats in real-time. "Our goal is to provide ADT customers with the most compre- hensive security solution to protect their business, and in today's world, this not only means their physical premise, but also their network," ADT's Whall said in the announce- ment, noting that the company will now allow ADT to extend that same level of security monitoring to the digital world. "Michael and his team will infuse cybersecurity DNA into our core business, allowing us to provide an offering that will dis- tinguish our brand as the premiere resource for end-to-end security." Headquartered in Scottsdale, Ariz., DATASHIELD was founded in 2009 and specializes in MDR for mid-market and enterprise loca- tions. In September, DATASHIELD opened its state-of-the-art Advanced Security Operations Center, or ASOC, increasing customer capacity by 300 percent. Jason Shockley, ADT's VP of corporate communications, told Security Systems News, "The acqui- sition of DATASHIELD further strengthens our ability to help protect our clients' virtual world that is increasingly under attack. At this point, we will continue to operate their state-of-the-art Advanced Security Operations Center (ASOC)." D ATA S H I E L D , n o w A D T Cybersecurity, offers full packet cap- ture and inspection beyond headers and metadata behind the firewall, according to the press release. ADT commercial and national account customers who look to add ADT Cybersecurity services will also have access to SHIELDVision, a unified platform for organizing, managing and collecting cyber intelligence. SHIELDVision auto- mates security analyst workflows to close the gap between cyberat- tack and breach detection time and remediation. "The standard approach to cybersecurity was not designed to provide rapid response," Michael Malone, CEO, DATASHIELD, said in the announcement. "This is a landmark opportunity to combine the brand and reach of ADT, with the technology and innovation of DATASHIELD to establish the new standard in the most comprehensive digital protection for mid-market and enterprise businesses." Shockley pointed out that creat- ing additional solutions for cyber- security "has been on our radar for several years. We have been work- ing with our clients to help design, manage and monitor security only networks for several years through our Network Operations Center and Integrated Solutions division. We also provide bundled solutions for small to medium businesses that we launched in select markets last year and are in the process of rolling out nationally." ADT Cybersecurity services are available for commercial and national account customers effec- tive immediately. Momentum Partners acted as exclusive finan- cial advisor to DATASHIELD and as ADT's strategic cybersecurity advisor.
