HelpSystems, the cybersecurity firm that owns Cobalt Strike, Tripwire, Digital Guardian and several other security providers, has rebranded to become Fortra.
According to the Minneapolis-based company, its new band is synchronous with security and defense and reflects the company’s commitment to helping customers simplify the complexity of cybersecurity in a business environment that is increasingly under attack.
The company says it has grown to more than 3,000 employees with offices in 18 countries and over 30,000 global customers as it shifts its focus to security and automation, building solutions with key capabilities in data security, infrastructure protection and managed security services.
That growth has included acquisitions Alert Logic, Digital Guardian, Cobalt Strike, Tripwire, Digital Defense, Terranova Security, Agari, PhishLabs, Core Security, GoAnywhere, Titus, and other well-known software and services providers.
These acquisitions have helped the company build a roster of industry experts and enabled integrations to help customers solve new security challenges. Fortra says its 350-person threat research and intelligence team stays abreast of emerging threats to guide customers in their defense efforts and infuse its software and services with critical insights.
Kate Bosleth, CEO of Fortra, says the company is evolving along with the cybersecurity industry. She calls the rebrand a new path forward that will bring positive change to the industry and the company’s customers.
“Everyone at Fortra is rallying behind this movement to tackle seemingly unmanageable security challenges and alleviate the constant worry many of our customers face,” Bosleth says. “As Fortra, we want our customers to think of us as their cybersecurity ally, with them every step of the way.”
