BeyondTrust’s acquisition of eEye Digital Security

Our goal at eEye has always been to help enterprise IT and security teams run more efficiently, by providing the context and intelligence required to better protect them from the threats which have evolved so rapidly in just the last few years alone. This acquisition will help us continue that mission, by giving us the substantial resources that joining forces with BeyondTrust will provide.

The combination of eEye and BeyondTrust will combine our award-winning security intelligence with security and compliance data from the BeyondTrust –what we are positioning as “Context Aware Security Intelligence”. This integrated approach will allow our customers to better prioritize the steps required to reduce the risk within their IT infrastructure.

Many of the senior leadership team at eEye is joining BeyondTrust, including myself. We plan to continue to invest heavily in our joint product lines, building great products and solutions for our customers. To all of our customers, thank you for helping us reach this very exciting time and we look forward to serving you with more innovation in the years to come.

Please join business and strategy leaders from both BeyondTrust and eEye Tuesday, May 15th at this 11am PT for a public webinar where we’ll discuss the combined company’s vision, value proposition and operational profile. You can register for that webcast here. I hope to see you all on that call.
