Acquisition of InfoSecurus further positions Winxnet as a leader in Security and Compliance and marks the beginning of a new phase of growth for the company
April 22, 2014
PORTLAND, Maine – April 22, 2014 — Winxnet, an IT outsourcing and consulting firm that meets the complete technology needs of private and public sector organizations, today announced the acquisition of InfoSecurus, a leading Information Security firm. The acquisition broadens Winxnet’s security offering and serves to complement Winxnet’s existing Managed Security and Compliance solutions.
“Security and Compliance is a top priority for organizations of all sizes today,” said Chris Claudio, CEO of Winxnet. “As the sophistication and frequency of cyber-attacks continue to increase, even organizations with exceptional in-house IT teams are now turning to experts for ongoing support. By bringing InfoSecurus’ expertise into Winxnet, we further position ourselves to be the one resource organizations can turn to when they are looking for a partner with a proven track record for keeping information safe.”
With the acquisition comes a talented team of security professionals, including InfoSecurus Founder and President, Dr. Eugene Slobodzian, who assumes the role of Winxnet’s Vice President of Security. Eugene brings more than 17 years of experience in information security, and is recognized as one of the most accomplished security experts in the region. He is a Certified Information Security Systems Professional (CISSP, 2004), has served on the Executive Committee of the Information Security Foundation (ISF), and holds an advanced degree in Physics from the University of Maine.
“Over the last few years the demand for information security expertise has been growing relentlessly,” said Dr. Slobodzian. “Joining forces with Winxnet is a win-win situation for InfoSecurus and our clients, as it ensures that we have resources to effectively meet expanding client needs without compromising the quality of service that our clients have really come to value and expect.“
The acquisition, which brings together best-in-class Information Security with best-in-class Managed Services, will benefit clients by providing seamless service – especially to those in regulated industries. Clients will now be able to work with the same partner for all of their needs, including penetration testing, vulnerability assessments, risk assessments, and security training as well as Managed Security Services such as real-time Network Intrusion Detection (NIDS), Host Intrusion Detection (HIDS), Vulnerability Management, and Compliance Reporting. This becomes especially important as the complexity of information security continues to rise and more organizations move from an in-house model to partnering with a proven expert for all of their security needs.
