Breach Security steps in to UK

Thinking about a deal

Web security firm Breach Security has acquired UK-based Thinking, a provider of services and enhancements for the open source ModSecurity web application firewall, for an undisclosed amount.

Breach said the deal, announced Monday, will allow it to bring together web application firewall and threat detection technology. It pledged continued support to the open source community with new releases of ModSecurity, as well as plans to incorporate ModSecurity technology into its commercial suite of web application security products. Breach is also offering to host product training, both online and in the classroom, as well as building an active community website.

ModSecurity (which boasts 10,000 deployments) began as an open source project written by Ivan Ristic, a noted authority in Apache Security. Ristic is to will join Breach Security as a chief evangelist. ®
