AppRiver Acquires Total Defense

Teresa Zwierzchowski

AppRiver announced today it has acquired New York-based Total Defense, an all-in-one provider of subscription-based endpoint software.

The acquisition – the second of 2018 for AppRiver – allows the cloud-enabled security and productivity services provider to expand its portfolio and further establish itself as the go-to IT security provider for SMBs worldwide.

In March 2018, AppRiver acquired the Canadian email security company, Roaring Penguin, extending its global footprint and strengthening its technological advantages over competitors in the email security space.

“This year is all about expanding our capabilities to become the channel’s most trusted provider of SMB security solutions,” said Chris Essex, AppRiver’s Chief Revenue Officer and Channel Chief. “Our partners have consistently told us they wanted the simplicity of dealing with one vendor and the high value that our Phenomenal Care® and powerful security services provide.”

The integration of AppRiver’s threat intelligence and analysis foundation into an endpoint security solution provides another powerful layer of cyber-defense for small- and mid-sized businesses.

Total Defense offers lightweight internet security endpoint protection for both consumers and businesses. The acquisition will not impact the consumer side of the business.
