Kivu Announces Strategic Partnership with Cerberus Sentinel

Global cybersecurity services firm broadens team in incident response, digital forensics, and ransomware negotiation

Scottsdale, Ariz. January. 31, 2023 –  Cerberus Cyber Sentinel Corporation (NASDAQ: CISO), an industry leader as a global cybersecurity and compliance provider, based in Scottsdale, Ariz., announced a strategic partnership with Kivu Consulting to extend its service offerings in a number of areas, including incident response, digital forensics, ransomware negotiation, and proprietary cyber threat intelligence. In turn, Cerberus Sentinel will further extend Kivu’s proactive cyber advisory services in North and South America. This agreement is the first of its kind for Cerberus Sentinel.

Kivu is a pioneering cybersecurity firm founded in 2009 specializing in cybersecurity incident response, digital forensics, ransom negotiations, business recovery services, and 24×7 managed detection and response. Kivu is a leading partner to cyber insurance carriers, brokers, and law firms, and it has talent and forensic labs based in the United States and the United Kingdom.

“Cybersecurity is a team sport. With the massive workforce and talent gaps continuing to grow worldwide, a collaborative and coordinated approach is key. We are building a network of ‘force multipliers’ with the expertise, solutions, and services to combat today’s advanced cyber threat actors and the attacks they perpetrate,” said Ashley Devoto, president and CISO of Cerberus Sentinel. “Kivu is an excellent fit for a mutual partnership with Cerberus Sentinel. Both are known as trusted advisors as organizations continue to face a $2-trillion global cybersecurity challenge requiring innovation, battle-tested practitioners, and global scale to address cyber attacks.”

“Cyber crime will never stop, and the global cybersecurity talent shortage continues to be a challenge.  When there are logical service interlocks, we have to partner, pool talent, and work together to protect organizations from cyber threats.  Both of our companies have talent and clients on multiple continents. Our partnership with Cerberus Sentinel allows both firms to scale and extend their talent and service capabilities,” said Shane Sims, CEO of Kivu.

Together, the companies will bring state-of-the-art cybersecurity services enabled by proprietary, innovative technologies that will accelerate the client journey to cyber resiliency and reduce business risk.
