SHI’s Stratascale Eyes Security Service Expansion With 1st Acquisition

The deal for security platform Vector0 will bring attack surface management capabilities to Stratascale.


Stratascale is looking to enhance its portfolio of cybersecurity services with the acquisition of attack surface management provider Vector0, the SHI-owned company announced Monday.

The deal is the first acquisition for Stratascale since it was formed in late 2020 as a subsidiary of SHI International, No. 14 on CRN’s Solution Provider 500 .

Terms of the Vector0 acquisition were not disclosed, and Stratascale declined to share details on Vector0’s employee headcount.

Founded in 2021, Vector0 provides continuous internet scans for customers to identify potentially vulnerable assets through its DarkWave attack surface management platform.

In a news release, Stratascale Senior Vice President David Olzak said that Vector0 brings “extensibility” that will enable Stratascale to integrate its managed services with “some of our most strategic cybersecurity partners’ threat and vulnerability management capabilities.”

SHI International President and CEO Thai Lee said the move is the latest in the effort to establish SHI, and Stratascale in particular, as a “leader in the cybersecurity consultancy and implementation market.”

M&A has been a major feature of the cybersecurity sector throughout the third quarter, with a series of major acquisition deals announced — ranging from small security startup acquisitions to Cisco’s $28 billion agreement to acquire Splunk.
