St. Bernard Software has increased its reach into the SME security market with the acquisition of Singlefin, a service provider of email and messaging security solutions.
The acquisition means 900 new customers for St. Bernard, the two companies said in a news release.
Vincent Rossi, St. Bernard president and COO, told SCMagazine.com today that the acquisition is "strategically very, very important for us and it opens up new capabilities that we did not have before."
"St. Bernard has a core solution to be the No. 1 provider for security solutions for small businesses, our solutions are centered around a part of the market and not the technology. Every other company I know has a technology centered message. That's not the case here," he said.
Jake Jacoby, founder and president of Singlefin, praised St. Bernard's standing in the industry, in a news release.
"Singlefin's secure content services and unique selling model are specifically tailored for the SME market and give customers a painless way to protect their networks," he said. "St. Bernard has an excellent reputation with small and medium enterprises, and we are excited about the opportunity to extend new and unique value to these customers."
