SCHAUMBURG, Ill., Feb. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- HALOCK® Security Labs (http://www.halock.com) announced today they have acquired Eclipsecurity, an Information Security Consulting Services firm based in Lincolnshire, IL. As part of the acquisition, HALOCK has hired Eclipsecurity's CEO, Steve Hamburg, and appointed Steve to lead HALOCK's Security Engineering and Incident Response Practice.
HALOCK was named to the Inc. 5000 List of America's fastest growing companies and is continuing to focus on consistent and profitable growth as one of Chicago's premiere Information Security Consulting firms. Jim Mirochnik, CEO of HALOCK, commented, "While HALOCK has previously pursued growth organically, rather than through acquisitions, Eclipsecurity's client base and strongly aligned corporate culture made them a compelling fit to pursue as an acquisition. By gaining exposure to Eclipsecurity's customers and hiring Steve Hamburg to lead our Security Engineering and Incident Response Practice, we are able to realize growth through customer base expansion and management team synergies from the acquisition."
Steve Hamburg noted, "In joining a company celebrating its 20th year in business, we are able to apply our collective experience to a combined client base currently in excess of 500 active business clients. The positive culture and significant concentration of talent at HALOCK made the acquisition very appealing for Eclipsecurity and me personally."
Steve Hamburg has BS and Master's degrees in Civil and Structural Engineering from University of Louisville and has held leadership positions in both Deloitte & Touche's Enterprise Security Services Practice and as the Functional Global Information Security Officer within Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu's Global Information Security Office.
