Secureworks, a leading provider of software-driven security solutions, has announced the signing of an agreement to acquire Delve. The purpose is to bring a new vulnerability management solution to the firm’s portfolio.

Secureworks CEO Michael Cote talks about the deal that it will “enrich Secureworks’ intelligence, further differentiate our end-to-end capabilities, and accelerate our transformation to deliver software with security at its core.”

The financial details of the deal remain undisclosed.

Why Acquire Delve?

It was founded in 2014 and offers Enterprise Clients a vulnerability management platform based on artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML). Since a lot of new vulnerabilities and threats are reported every day, the security administrators and professionals are juggling to apply the right bug fix and measure their impact every now and then. Here, Delve comes to play its role by sorting security flaws and assist users in decision-making.

The agreement says that Delve’s automated vulnerability management platform, which comprises scanning and remediation tools, will become a part of Secureworks’ platform.

“Against the backdrop of today’s digital landscape, our customers demand sophisticated, scalable solutions that respond to threats putting their business and workforce at risk,” said Michael R. Cote, Chief Executive Officer of Secureworks.

“We were the first to deliver a context-based, AI-driven vulnerability scanning and prioritization solution, and we believe this pioneering spirit is the ideal complement to Secureworks’ proven approach to helping customers grow their business securely,” said Gabriel Tremblay, Chief Executive Officer of Delve. “Together, we will expand customers’ access to the solutions and applications they need to make decisions that effectively defend their organizations against the most threatening adversaries.”

“To Delve customers, we look forward to introducing you to the Secureworks team and demonstrating our purpose to secure human progress by outpacing and outmaneuvering the adversary,” Cote added.
