DigitalStakeout, a provider of vulnerability managements services, acquires ScannerX, an Atlanta-based company whose technologies allow network administrators to get a hacker’s perspective of their network. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

Company executives contend that this move will strengthen and broaden DigitalStakeout’s commitment to providing vulnerability management services to the mid-market.

“This acquisition represents an important strategic move for DigitalStakeout,” said Mike Pearson, CEO of DigitalStakeout. “It is a classic example of the consolidation seen lately in the network security services industry.”

The organization’s leadership reports that as a result of this acquisition companies with or without a dedicated security staff will be able to identify, prioritize and monitor new vulnerabilities.
