New brand identity marks strategic shift toward providing global customers with a single line of cyber defense

Posted on November 2, 2022

MINNEAPOLIS — Nov 2, 2022—HelpSystems announced today that it has become Fortra™ a name synchronous with security and defense. This evolution reflects the company’s enhanced commitment to helping customers simplify the complexity of cybersecurity in a business environment increasingly under siege. With a stronger line of defense from a single provider, organizations of all kinds can look to Fortra to increase security maturity while reducing the burdens to everyday productivity.  

“The cybersecurity industry is always changing, and we’re evolving along with it,” said Kate Bolseth, CEO, Fortra. “This is a pivotal, exciting moment for us as we’re defining a new, bold path forward that will bring positive change to the industry and our customers. Everyone at Fortra is rallying behind this movement to tackle seemingly unmanageable security challenges and alleviate the constant worry many of our customers face. As Fortra, we want our customers to think of us as their cybersecurity ally, with them every step of the way.” 

In recent years, Fortra has grown to more than 3,000 employees with offices in 18 countries and over 30,000 global customers. As part of this evolution, the company shifted its focus to cybersecurity and automation, building a best-in-class portfolio with key capabilities in data security, infrastructure protection, and managed security services. These acquisitions have included Alert Logic, Digital Guardian, Cobalt Strike, Tripwire, Digital Defense, Terranova Security, Agari, PhishLabs, Core Security, GoAnywhere, Titus, and other well-known software and services providers. 

Such a rich collection of proven solutions has built the organization’s roster of industry experts and enabled innovative integrations to help customers solve challenges in new, streamlined ways.
