Seattle-area cybersecurity startup Cyemptive today announced the acquisition of Adaptive Technology Group (ATG), a 14-year-old IT consulting service company also based in the Seattle region. The ten employees working for ATG will join Cyemptive, whose headcount is now north of 65 people. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Cyemptive came out of stealth mode last month, announcing a $3.5 million investment round from undisclosed investors. The company describes its cybersecurity software as an “automatic self-repairing reliable platform.” It sells products including an endpoint protection service and advanced perimeter firewalls, among others.
Cyemptive’s executive team includes founder Rob Pike, who was previously an executive at Hitachi; Jim DuBois, who was formerly chief information officer at Microsoft; and Gary Zelanko, who spent 30 years at the NSA, most recently as chief computer architect.
The company plans to use ATG’s expertise in customer service and support to help serve its growing customer base of businesses and government clients. ATG founder and CEO Bryan Greene will join the Cyemptive management team.
“Incorporating ATG’s already-established infrastructure of customer focus, service and support with our groundbreaking failsafe, pre-emptive cyber protection technologies is a natural next step in providing the best in cyber security solutions and support to them,” DuBois said in a statement.
