Lumifi Cyber Acquires Datashield to Deliver Next-Generation Managed Detection and Response

Combines AI and Machine Learning-Based Software with MDR Services to Provide Fortune 500-Grade Security to Companies of All Sizes

Palm Desert, CA and Scottsdale, AZ — May 3, 2022 — Lumifi Cyber, Inc., a next-generation managed detection and response (MDR) cybersecurity software provider, today announced its acquisition of Datashield, Inc., an end-to-end cybersecurity resilience services provider, to deliver Fortune 500-grade security to companies of all sizes for an affordable monthly price.

Although terms of the deal were not disclosed, Lumifi’s joint offering will integrate their cutting- edge attack simulation, automated endpoint remediation and continuous threat monitoring software with Datashield’s industry-recognized MDR services, state-of-the-art security operations center and team of ex-military and former DoD cybersecurity professionals.

“Too many companies lack the security staff, tools and expertise to defend against the rise of ransomware attacks,” said Michael Malone, CEO of Lumifi. “Datashield is the perfect acquisition partner for us to deploy our recent growth capital to execute on our vision of combining always- on attack simulation with automated remediation to alleviate the cybersecurity skills gap.”

Together, Lumifi’s advanced MDR platform leverages AI, machine learning and automation to proactively identify security gaps before cybercriminals can exploit them, automatically remediate endpoint vulnerabilities to reduce the available attack surface and continuously monitor network and endpoint environments 24/7/365 to detect, contain and remediate threats.

“The threat landscape is constantly evolving, which requires continuous investments in people, process and technology to stay one step ahead of attackers,” said Jimmy Treuting, former President and General Manager of Datashield and incoming COO of Lumifi. “Our customers will only benefit from our new company’s shared culture of innovation, speed and agility.”

In order to provide peace of mind against the latest cyber threats, Lumifi will provide a turn-key cybersecurity monitoring and management solution for an affordable monthly price that delivers advanced levels of security to businesses of all sizes across regulated industries, such as energy, manufacturing, healthcare, finance and more.
