Risk analytics provider QOMPLX has entered into an agreement to acquire cyber-intelligence company, Sentar Inc.
Sentar will continue to be led by President Darren Kraabel alongside other key management. Bridget McCaleb will continue in a formal capacity leading integration efforts for Sentar during the transition.
Sentar and QOMPLX have already begun to partner around industrial control systems security and continuous monitoring using shared expertise and QOMPLX software and analytics.
The pending acquisition is a bid for QOMPLX to enhance its cybersecurity intelligence, operations and service delivery across the government. Opportunities for the combined team include the delivery of QOMPLX’s industry leading Active Directory security and authentication attack detection and advanced security data fusion use cases.
Jason Crabtree, Co-Founder, and CEO of QOMPLX said: “We are excited to welcome Darren and the highly experienced Sentar team to QOMPLX and look forward to supporting these mission critical customers. QOMPLX is gaining a tremendous group of dedicated professionals who have built an impressive and expanding portfolio of government and defence contracts.
“Sentar is the perfect catalyst and partner for QOMPLX to scale a unique combined offering bridging technology and domain expertise across the national security and broader government sector in this critical time. Very tactically, we are excited about the future opportunities to advance our robust capabilities in Active Directory and authentication security, industrial control systems and operational technology, and healthcare-related security offerings.
“We are heartened by the opportunities for long-term strategic partnership between QOMPLX, the joining Sentar team, and the important clients who are so well served by the Sentar team.”
Darren Kraabel, President of Sentar added: “I am excited to take on this new role and pursue a new challenge combining QOMPLX’s robust cybersecurity offerings with Sentar’s established presence in the Defence sector.
“Our organization celebrated its 30th anniversary in February 2020, and reaching this milestone helped us put in perspective our impressive growth journey. It is hence opportune at this time that we embark on an exciting new journey by joining forces with QOMPLX to transform 30 years of hard work into a new competitive platform.”
