Fortra Acquires PhishLabs to Continue Expansion of Cybersecurity Portfolio
Digital Risk Protection platform delivers curated threat intelligence and complete threat mitigation across digital risk landscape
MINNEAPOLIS, October 19, 2021—Fortra announced today the acquisition of PhishLabs, a leading cyber threat intelligence company that protects organizations from attacks on their brands, employees, and digital assets. PhishLabs sources intelligence across the internet to find and mitigate digital risks. The team and solutions from PhishLabs will join Fortra’s growing cybersecurity portfolio and pair well with Fortra’s email security, vulnerability management, and data protection solutions.
“Digital transformation has made it critical for security teams to have visibility across the digital landscape and to quickly respond to both internal and external threats,” said Kate Bolseth, CEO, Fortra. “PhishLabs’ ongoing intelligence collection, curation, and threat mitigation safeguards organizations’ critical digital assets and provides peace of mind for customers across the globe. We are thrilled to be welcoming the PhishLabs team and their expertise into the Fortra family.”
