EPAM Systems Inc., a leading international supplier of digital platform engineering and development services, which is traded on the New York Stock Exchange, announced its acquisition of White-Hat.
"We're pleased to welcome White-Hat to the EPAM family. Adding their expertise, methodologies, and team of talented professionals will help our clients design cybersecurity into their applications—at agile speed and cloud scale—while advancing towards Zero Trust Architecture," said Sam Rehman, CISO and Head of Cybersecurity at EPAM.
"As organizations modernize their architectures and applications, their devices, users, applications, and networks become potential breach points, making it imperative to secure infrastructure and protect sensitive data. We've increased our cybersecurity investments, because security should be as pervasive as the cloud."
White-Hat, owned by Sharon Nimirovski, was established in 2013 with an objective of safeguarding organizations using innovative and advanced methodologies and an in-depth understanding of the environment by adopting the mindset of the attacker, using teams of "white hat hackers". The services of the company include the unique solution "Eye of the Enemy" that optimizes a company's defensive strategy, incident response, threat hunting, cyber intelligence, security operation center, and penetration test.
"We are excited about this new chapter for our organization. By joining EPAM our employees will have an opportunity to work with many of the world's leading brands and our customer will gain access to end-to-end digital transformation and platform engineering services," said Ofer Levinger, CEO of White-Hat.
"We are ready to combine our cybersecurity know-how and bring new, innovative solutions to market. Our expertise in Incident Response and Threat Hunting will allow us to rapidly enhance EPAM's Offensive Security approaches to address the needs of the modern digital enterprise. We estimate that in the coming years we will expand to hundreds to workers and lead the global market in our field."
