/n software first announced its plans to acquire EldoS Corp. earlier this summer. Now that the transaction has officially completed, the two companies will work together to enhance and develop next-generation software security solutions for developers.
EldoS is known for its SecureBlackbox solution as well as data protection, secure storage and file system virtualization services. According to Eric Madariaga, marketing director for /n software, EldoS and /n software’s strategies are well aligned, and the acquisition will help improve /n software’s low-level data protection, storage and virtualization capabilities.
“This acquisition is a win for /n software, for EldoS, and for all of our mutual customers,” said Madariaga. “/n software and EldoS share a deep commitment to developers and our passion for protecting data—together, we are bigger, stronger, and better positioned to offer developers world-class security products and services.”
As part of the acquisition, EldoS will continue to operate as an independent business unit and as a brand extension of /n software. The EldoS team will continue to maintain and improve the company’s data access, protection and security components, according to Madariaga. In addition, EldoS’ former European offices will continue to work as satellite offices for /n software, and provide extended support for European customers.
“We are excited to welcome the EldoS Corporation team and the entire lineup of EldoS products to /n software,” said Gent Hito, president and CEO of /n software, in a statement. “The addition of EldoS will enable us to deliver new and exciting data protection, storage, and system virtualization tools to our customers. Their quality software products, highly talented team members, and unique intellectual property will position us well to deliver next-generation security solutions for developers well into the future.”
