Qualys ready to acquire Second Front Systems

Qualys announced that it has entered into a non-binding letter of intent to purchase Second Front Systems and the company believes the acquisition would provide them an increased domain expertise in building and delivering cybersecurity solutions tailored for the U.S. federal government, including defense, intelligence, and law enforcement.

Second Front Systems sources cutting-edge solutions in cybersecurity and advanced intelligence analytics, and delivers these solutions by working to engage the appropriate government stakeholders and modifying technology platforms to address mission requirements. Second Front Systems is currently a Qualys channel partner delivering solutions to federal agencies using the Qualys Gov Platform.

“This acquisition would enable us to strengthen our federal division and expand the reach of the Qualys Gov Platform to various government sectors including military and defense,” said Philippe Courtot, chairman and CEO at Qualys.

Depending on negotiations and approvals Qualys expects the transaction to close either in Q3 or Q4 of this year.
