Phoenix-based GMI, a leading total technology solutions provider, announced the acquisition of Alagen, a Phoenix-based cybersecurity firm with a team of 45 security specialists. This acquisition significantly expands GMI’s current cybersecurity services and will create 200 new technology jobs in metro-Phoenix over the next 12 months.
This marks the third acquisition for GMI in the past six months, signifying the organization’s commitment to deepening its resources to better serve its customers. Alagen’s expertise spans a wide spectrum of security services, including strategic security advisory services, architecture and integration, threat and vulnerability assessment and 24/7 security monitoring.
“We are thrilled to welcome Alagen to the GMI family,” said Simer S. Mayo, CEO of GMI. “In our increasingly connected world, cybersecurity has become mission critical for our customers and organizations across the globe. Alagen brings deep security expertise coupled with a customer-centric focus that positions us to be a leader in IT security solutions and provide a major economic impact with the creation of technology jobs to the Valley.”
The alarming rise of cyber threats and security breaches have created a significant increase in the demand for cybersecurity services. However, with the global shortage of qualified and experienced security resources, companies who are poised to deliver on these services have a distinct advantage in the marketplace. This acquisition equips GMI with the resources and expertise to meet the increasing demand and become a leader in the cybersecurity industry.
“Over the past decade, Alagen has successfully delivered industry-leading cybersecurity services to our customers,” said Gregg Davis, CEO of Alagen. “Integrating our security services into a wider technology offering was the next step in our evolution. GMI’s like-minded commitment to its customers’ success and ability to delivery across the spectrum of technology services made it the perfect fit for the Alagen team.”
GMI is a Certified Diversity Supplier and the largest minority-owned company in Arizona.
