In a prepared statement about the Neuralys deal, Coalfire Chief Operating Officer Mark Carney said:
“With this acquisition, Coalfire combines the industry’s most experienced adversarial operations team and breakthrough technology to manage cyber risk in today’s dynamic threat environment.

Our technology, combined with Coalfire’s unparalleled reputation in adversary simulation and pen testing, puts our solution on the cutting edge of providing a new standard in pen testing.”

“As cloud security becomes a top-down, centrally managed problem to solve, Coalfire saw the need for real-time assessments, vulnerability management, and rapid remediation for our clients’ digital footprints. In our 20th anniversary year, we’re pleased to bring Coalfire’s pen testing capabilities to the next level with the talented Neuralys team.”
