(Cincinnati, OH) June 20th, 2017 – RoundTower Technologies, LLC a leading solutions provider and consulting firm focused on foundational and emerging technologies, announced today it has acquired Mainstream Security, LLC a Cincinnati-based firm specializing in advanced anomaly and cyber threat detection. This acquisition will significantly expand RoundTower’s capabilities and offerings in the cyber security arena.
With security being a top initiative for all businesses both small and large, this acquisition places RoundTower in a strategic and consultative position to better support its customers with ongoing threats. RoundTower will be adding a wide range of security assessment services including penetration testing, web application testing, and social engineering. In addition, they will offer consulting and advanced services for digital forensics, incident response, IT security training (first responder courses), and 24x7 security monitoring.
“RoundTower has built a sizable security business practice over the past several years and this strategic acquisition allows us to round-out our IT security portfolio while adding additional high-end security services such as managed security services and red team pen testing. We are excited to have Lou Carli and his talented team join the RoundTower family. Their skills and experience are unmatched in the IT security space and I look forward to seeing our business flourish with Mainstream’s advanced security capabilities,” says Stephen West, Managing Partner.
Cyber security attacks are increasing and sophisticated intrusions are rising in complexity every day. Many internal security teams are not equipped for the onslaught and need strategic partners to support their 24x7 monitoring efforts. As the threat landscape continues to expand at a rapid pace it is critical that organizations increase their detection and response capabilities. Through this acquisition, RoundTower can provide these types of services through a world class security operations center (SOC) and an already established network operations center (NOC) encompassing over 75 technical experts.
Mainstream and RoundTower have been strategic partners for several years and have several common clients across the country. “This fact was particularly appealing,” says Lou Carli, CEO Mainstream Security. “We have established solid working relationships and we both see unlimited potential for growth on the horizon. From the Mainstream perspective, we are extremely pleased to join such a superior organization.”
Carli adds, “RoundTower’s investment capital, outstanding portfolio, along with their vast and talented resources allow us to scale faster and more effectively than we could have with any other potential partner. It’s a perfect match.”
