Cyber security technology company F-Secure announced the acquisition of Inverse Path, a security services provider to the avionics, automotive and industrial control sectors.

F-Secure aims to strengthen its position as a service provider for businesses in critical sectors via the acquisition of Inverse Path, a privately-held company.

Inverse Path’s expertise is the perfect fit for our fast growing consultancy business,” said Jens Thonke, executive vice president, Cyber Security Services at F-Secure.

Inverse Path’s leadership in embedded system security is evident in its USB armory project — a USB stick that features an entire onboard computer designed to provide a portable platform for personal security applications.
