It’s been a busy week in #dctech. Here’s a roundup of some Washington, D.C., area companies making acquisitions:
Dark Cubed acquires Fenris IV Incorporated
Alexandria, Va.-based cybersecurity firm Dark Cubed has acquired Charlottesville, Va.–based Fenris IV Incorporated, a cybersecurity company that offers services to highly regulated small and mid-sized businesses. Founded four years ago, Dark Cubed provides the SaaS platform for companies to simply create an account through its web app where they can send data from their firewall to Dark Cubed to receive real time security, visibility, and automated protection. This acquisition will help Dark Cubed expand its team and offer new products and services to underserved cybersecurity markets, a press release states.
Fenris IV Incorporated being acquired is not to be confused with Glen Allen, Va.-based fintech company Fenris Digital.

“The timing is perfect for the Fenris and Dark Cubed teams to come together to accelerate our offerings in the marketplace and provide increased security without the traditional friction and high cost. Our customers will reap the benefits of this acquisition immediately as we integrate the Fenris offerings with our existing SaaS platform,” Dark Cubed CEO Vincent Crisler said in a statement.
Dark Cube will gain Fenris IV Incorporated’s portfolio of security operations team members, analysts and a tech stack delivered as a cloud-based service, eliminating the need for expensive on-premise hardware/software solutions, the press release states. Dark Cubed customers can continue to enjoy the company’s threat protection solutions and will now have access to endpoint protection, device enumeration, security event monitoring, vulnerability scanning, penetration testing, phishing tests and training.
Crisler told Technical.ly that the company is not disclosing the terms of the acquisition deal at this time.
