Cerberus Cyber Sentinel Corporation (OTC: CISO), a cybersecurity consulting and managed services firm based in Scottsdale, Ariz., announced that it has acquired Alpine Security, a St. Louis, Missouri-based cybersecurity services provider.
Under the terms of the acquisition, Alpine will become part of Cerberus Sentinel and will continue to focus on providing integrated risk managed services to a diverse set of national customers. With the new organizational structure, Alpine president and founder Christian Espinosa will take on a strategy role within Cerberus Sentinel.
“Alpine is an excellent fit for the Cerberus portfolio of companies,” said David Jemmett, CEO and founder of Cerberus Sentinel. “The demand for quality compliance, training, and penetration testing talent continues to grow, and we are pleased to have them join us.”
