MISSION VIEJO, CA–(Mar 31, 2015) – CynergisTek, Inc (OTCQB: AUXO), a leading provider of Information Security Services for the healthcare industry, today announced the signing of a definitive acquisition agreement with Redspin, Inc. The Carpinteria, CA-based Company will be integrated into CynergisTek’s Security Solutions Group.
Redspin, a leading provider of HIPAA security risk assessments and penetration testing services, is a trusted advisor to the healthcare industry. Staffed by a world-class team of security experts, Redspin helps its clients better safeguard protected health information (PHI), by protecting their IT infrastructure from malicious attackers and improving the security awareness of their workforce. The company’s diverse customer base includes over 135 hospitals, including a top 5 academic medical center, over 1,000 clinics, and many large business associates.
“We are excited to announce this acquisition and welcome the Redspin team to CynergisTek,” said Joseph J. Flynn, President and CEO of CynergisTek. “They are a well-respected leader in providing risk assessment and penetration testing services, which perfectly complements our Security Solutions portfolio. This acquisition fits squarely with our strategy of identifying complementary technology and services, led by dynamic leaders who understand the market, have the ability to scale and who can help us take this business to the next level,” continued Mr. Flynn.
The transaction is expected to close during the next few weeks. Details regarding the consideration, financials, and additional information regarding the acquisition will be disclosed in a current report, which will be filed with the SEC in the next few days.
Redspin is a strategic fit with CynergisTek’s Security Group by both complementing and further improving its end-to-end security offering. Redspin will enable CynergisTek to not only effectively complete the risk assessment at the beginning of the process but also enable ongoing assessment for vulnerabilities once the information security program has been instituted. Redspin currently services a major CynergisTek Security Group customer and cross-marketing strategies are expected to yield additional customer wins during 2015.
“We are very enthusiastic about joining CynergisTek and are completely aligned with their vision to become a relevant player in healthcare security services, a vertical which currently has no defined leader. Our services fit perfectly within the Security Group’s current offering and our customer base of 135 hospitals offers ample room to capture additional market share through the entire suite of security services,” elaborated Daniel W. Berger, President and CEO of Redspin.
“Healthcare organizations are fighting very complex security battles against sophisticated enemies and they need dynamic world-class teams to help them. With the addition of Redspin, we add significant capability to our already-proven team, establishing the clear go-to security services provider for healthcare.” concluded Mike Gentile, CynergisTek’s Executive Vice President of Innovation and Security.
