Strongarm Acquired by WatchGuard Technologies

Today we announced that we’ve been acquired by WatchGuard Technologies. All of our customers should already have been contacted by us explaining the transaction and what happens next.

We’d like to to thank all of our customers for believing in us over the past three years. We hope that our commitment to your company’s security and the success of your business has shown through.

This is just the beginning, though. Strongarm’s and WatchGuard’s dedication to simple, easy to use security solutions for SMB and distributed enterprises is a perfect match. With WatchGuard’s resources, we will be speeding to market with new features for protecting off-network users and expanding our ability to protect you from phishing attacks. WatchGuard’s commitment to the channel and MSPs will bring new features and programs to help our partners grow their business. Stick with us for more details on that.

What’s Next?

We will be continuing to serve Strongarm customers with the same service you’ve always enjoyed. Our analysis team will continue to analyze those alerts and provide you recommendations on what to do next. Of course, they’ll also continue to triage the suspicious phishing messages you’re forwarding to us for analysis.

Starting today, the Strongarm dashboard has a new look and feel to match WatchGuard products. In addition, the Strongarm name is being replaced by DNSWatch.

Thanks Again

You all have been an absolute blast to work with! Thanks for your ideas, support, feedback, and criticism. It’s made us better and all of our customers safer.
