Threatcare Acquires Savage Security

The deal expands Threatcare's business beyond its breach and attack simulation platform to include services and applied research.

Vulnerability management platform provider Threatcare announced today it acquired its business partner Savage Security.

The deal, which closed in December, came months after the two companies formed a business partnership. Under the partnership, Threatcare's Violet breach and attack simulation platform was used with Savage's Blueprint and Breach Assessment services in which Savage's clients would simulate attacker actions.

Savage provides security consulting, as well as product testing for vendors and manufacturers. As part of the merger, Threatcare plans to pair Savage's services with its Violet platform, the company stated.

"Threatcare’s ability to now offer strategic services—in addition to software—enables us to be a one-stop solution for many security teams," Marcus Carey, Threatcare CEO, said in a statement. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
