Cyber security company F-Secure has acquired Digital Assurance, a UK based security consultancy firm.

Digital Assurance offers information security assessment services to governments and enterprises in the financial, petrochemical, retail, communication, and defense industries in the UK.

The acquisition of Digital Assurance will allow F-Secure to combine its endpoint protection and new cyber security solutions and services with Digital Assurance’s current security offerings. This acquisition will help F-Secure grow its service business to meet the demand for cyber security services.

“Digital Assurance’s cyber security specialists will help F-Secure bring its advanced technology and security expertise to a greater number of organizations in the UK,” said Jens Thonke, executive vice president of F-Secure’s Cyber Security Services.

Digital Assurance’s security testing encompasses all forms of technical evaluation, ranging from zero-knowledge black-box penetration tests to detailed source code and system configuration reviews that identify exposures and vulnerabilities attackers can exploit.

Greg Jones is the founder and managing director of Digital Assurance. Post-completion of the deal, Digital Assurance will be part of F-Secure’s Cyber Security Services business unit. The acquisition will not have a material impact on F-Secure’s financial outlook for 2017.
