Cybersecurity Firm AppRiver Acquires Roaring Penguin

Cloud-based cybersecurity software and services company AppRiver has acquired Canadian software company Roaring Penguin.

AppRiver said Tuesday the move will bolster its presence in Canada and help strengthen its position in the anti-spam and anti-virus business. Roaring Penguin provides filtering software to a range of private-sector and government customers in North America and Europe.

“This acquisition is the first of a series of initiatives aimed at establishing AppRiver as the global go-to cloud cybersecurity and productivity company for SMB customers and the channel partners who serve them,” AppRiver president and CEO Michael Murdoch said in a statement released by the company.

Gulf Breeze, Fla.-based AppRiver provides web malware protection, email encryption, secure archiving and other services. It’s also a large provider of Microsoft Office 365 and Secure Hosted Exchange

“Cybercriminals never stop innovating, and neither can we,” said Joel Smith, AppRiver’s CTO and co-founder. “We intend to stay ahead of the pack and the bad guys by continuously improving our security. Roaring Penguin’s automated system will give us an important edge.”
