SHI International enhances cybersecurity offerings with acquisition of Moot

Somerset-based SHI International on Thursday said it acquired Moot Inc., a cybersecurity firm that provides automated security solutions to help customers optimize the potential value of existing information technology assets.

Moot introduces automation that can significantly reduce security costs by eliminating human error, research & development, implementation, support and more. The platform orchestrates security workflows like baselines, privileged security, user management and device management by optimizing an environment’s existing tools.

“Helping customers stay vigilant in securing their environment requires a constant evaluation of new cutting-edge cybersecurity companies and technologies,” Thai Lee, CEO and president of SHI, said. “But security should not hamper productivity. Our clients will appreciate the efficiency of Moot’s orchestration platform and help them enhance the technology investments they have already made while planning for future growth.”

The acquisition is complete, and Moot’s employees have formally joined SHI.
