Florida-based Cybersecurity trainer HackerU, which offers cybersecurity and digital skills programmes, is acquiring Cybint, a New York City-headquartered software-as-a-service-based cyber education company – and rebranded as ThriveDX, TechCrunch has reported.

Though unconfirmed, the consideration is believed to be around $50 million.

Dan Vigdor, co-founder and executive chairman of HackerU, said: “The combination of our two companies’ positions the new ThriveDX group as the category leader worldwide and solidifies our ability to reskill and upskill individuals at any stage of their professional life. The pandemic accelerated a huge transformation across the global workforce, leaving companies in dire need of workers with specific skills and job candidates in need of training.”

Cybint’s founder and chief executive Roy Zur commented: “The Cybint team will support HackerU by signing additional partnerships and accelerating the development of software-as-a-service training solutions with a strong emphasis on corporate training and cybersecurity education solutions globally.”
