STAMFORD, Conn., June 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- BlackStratus, a leading provider of cloud-based security and compliance technology tailored for both SMBs and large enterprises, announced today the grand opening of its new Stamford, Conn., based office. The new location will accommodate up to nearly 80 employees and will primarily provide marketing, sales and support for BlackStratus' new Security-as-a-Service, CYBERShark, which launched in April. This news follows on the heels of the company announcing that its CYBERShark platform had received the Best-of-Show award, along with several other awards, by the ASCII Group.
The new office is supported by a multi-million dollar grant from the State of Connecticut's Department of Economic and Community Development. As part of the grant, BlackStratus aims to open later this year on a new Security Operations Center, which will be responsible for monitoring the network security and compliance of thousands of businesses across the globe. BlackStratus forecasts to grow its staff in the Stamford office to at least 65 employees over the next three years.
"We are grateful to the State of Connecticut and the Department of Economic and Community Development for awarding us a multi-million dollar grant, which is giving BlackStratus the resources to open its new Stamford office," said Dale Cline, CEO of BlackStratus. "Our new CYBERShark platform solves one of the longest standing security holes for small to midsize businesses. With the Stamford office operational BlackStratus has the ideal resources in place to meet the demand we're presently encountering for CYBERShark."
The Stamford office, which is located at 9 West Broad Street, Suite 720, Stamford, CT 06902, is in addition to BlackStratus' global headquarters based in Piscataway, N.J.
Along with securing Best-of-Show, BlackStratus also received awards for Creativity and Innovation, Best Market Opportunity, and Best Security Solution at the ASCII Group event. The awards were received following the national launch of CYBERShark, a white labeled security and compliance service aimed specifically at the Managed Service Provider (MSP) community and their SMB customers. CYBERShark empowers MSPs to build a sustainable managed services business without the need to invest in expensive infrastructure, buy expensive hardware appliances and recruit expensive security analysts.
