LOS ANGELES – May 12, 2015: Marlin Equity Partners (“Marlin”) is pleased to announce that it has acquired Resolution1 Security (“Resolution1”), a leading provider of endpoint threat detection and automated incident response cybersecurity solutions. The company’s comprehensive endpoint software platform delivers real-time insight and analysis, and automated response and remediation of security incidents which enable security analysts and operations teams to rapidly and effectively find and eliminate threats at the endpoint device. Resolution1 has been merged with Fidelis Cybersecurity, a Marlin portfolio company, extending Fidelis’ existing network-based product offering into the endpoint and creating a fully integrated, end-to-end provider of advanced threat defense solutions.
“We are very excited to add Resolution1 to the Fidelis platform,” said Peter George, CEO of Fidelis. “The combination of Fidelis’ leading network security solution with Resolution1’s endpoint technology will provide customers with unmatched protection against current and future advanced threats.”
“Resolution1’s continuous and automated endpoint threat detection and remediation engine addresses one of the largest issues in cybersecurity today – the disproportionate number of incidents that security analysts must manually respond to in the enterprise,” added Peter Chung, a principal at Marlin. “With the acquisition, Fidelis offers one of the most comprehensive and powerful advanced threat solutions in the market across both the network and endpoint.”
