It also adds a third CyberOps Center of Excellence to Avertium’s existing two centers in Arizona and Tennessee.
“What impressed us most about the team at 1440 Security is their exemplary culture of integrity and the overwhelmingly positive customer feedback about the company’s commitment to keeping customers’ networks, data and other critical assets safe,” said Jeff Schmidt, CEO of Avertium. “This shared singular focus along with their technical LogRhythm expertise make them excellent additions to the Avertium team,” he added.

Partners like Avertium are a key part of that philosophy,” said Mark Logan, president and CEO of LogRhythm. “I am excited that long-time LogRhythm partner 1440 Security will join with Avertium and together bring their combined expertise to customers that want to take their security program to the next level,” he added.
