MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cloudastructure, the award-winning cloud video surveillance provider, has signed a Letter of Intent to purchase rapidly growing IoT cybersecurity company IPG. The terms of the deal are undisclosed.
The acquisition would add an important new layer of cybersecurity to Cloudastructure’s expanding physical and cybersecurity platform and a key offering for enterprise customers as they embrace new IoT technologies.
The plethora of IoT devices tells the story. According to a Forrester report, “State of Enterprise IoT Security in North America: Unmanaged and Unsecured”:
Routinely installed IoT devices include: video surveillance, access control, fire and life safety, utilities, conveyance, HVAC and building management.
IPG’s cybersecurity tool GearBox is a “plug-and-play” tool which inventories devices, performs risk analysis, compliance testing and rogue device detection. This combined with readily accessible normalized data alleviates the level of risk introduced by IoT installations. The IPG team will be joining Cloudastructure, including Steve Kiss, CEO, as General Manager, IoT Security.
Cloudastructure CEO Rick Bentley commented, “The acquisition of IPG means Cloudastructure enterprise customers can enjoy not only a vastly higher degree of cybersecurity than they can with other cloud video surveillance providers, but opt for a robust IoT risk management posture throughout their organization.”
IPG CEO Steve Kiss commented, “We couldn’t be more pleased joining Cloudastructure, a cloud-based video surveillance provider that views cybersecurity as critically as we do.”
Subject to satisfactory completion of customary due diligence and the signing of a definitive agreement, the closing of the deal will be announced on a mutually agreeable date.
