Bolton Labs Enhances Its Security Operations Center Enablement Platform with Acquisition of Pandora Labs
Pandora Labs Founder, Isaac Sabas Appointed as Vice President of Product Inside Bolton Labs
Bolton Labs announced their acquisition of Pandora Labs, a Philippines-based cloud security services provider. Pandora Labs’ delivery capabilities will be integrated into Bolton Labs’ Security Operations Center Enablement Platform allowing them to deliver the technology, training, and services required to successfully launch and run Security Operations Centers (SOCs) around the world.
Founded in 2013 by entrepreneur Isaac Sabas, Pandora Labs delivers cloud-based threat detection software that is in use by a large number of Philippines-based companies in the financial services, healthcare, and manufacturing sectors. Pandora Labs’ existing customers will now be serviced by Bolton Labs.
Included in the acquisition is Pandora Labs’ proprietary training program which will be incorporated into Bolton Labs’own training solution, Bolton Academy. Bolton Academy delivers value-added training services as well as certification and deployment for security analysts that power Bolton Labs’ SOC-as-a-Service offer.
In addition, as part of the transaction, Bolton Labs will establish a brand new Security Research and Development facility in the fast-growing tech hub of Bonifacio Global City, which, in recent years has become a hotbed of security activity and home to many SOCs for global companies. The facility will deliver expanded product development capabilities and 24×7 risk profiling teams which will enhance Bolton Labs’ service levels for its growing global customer base.
Bolton Labs CEO, Richard Dobrow said in a statement, “Isaac has built an incredible team and service at Pandora Labs and we are proud to have him joining us on our mission of disrupting the way SOCs are staffed and operated.” Bolton Labs COO, Patrick Linton added, “Isaac and his team will be instrumental in the continued development of our SOC Enablement Platform for MSPs, as well as driving our continued growth in the Philippines and Southeast Asia.”
Sabas, who has been appointed as Vice President of Product said, “As global privacy and security requirements continue to grow, businesses are faced with increasingly complex environments to navigate; by joining forces with Bolton Labs, we have the weight of a larger global organization to support us in delivering world-class security capabilities to our channel partners and customers.”
