"FishNet Security has experienced tremendous growth throughout its history, and we have nearly tripled in size over the past five years," said Gary Fish, founder and CEO of FishNet Security. "One of our biggest challenges has been keeping up with our customers' demand for experienced engineers, consultants and trainers. The acquisition of TorreyPoint dramatically expands our resources and creates one of the largest dedicated infrastructure solution teams in the country."  

TorreyPoint has partnerships with vendors including Palo Alto Networks, Arista, ADVA Optical Networks, A10 and Brocade.

Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

Service offerings will be immediately integrated with existing FishNet Security business operations, FishNet said, and current TorreyPoint customers should contact their local account manager for additional information regarding the transition.

FishNet Security has 29 regional offices, including 10 training facilities and two product testing laboratories.

In February 2012, FishNet launched a cloud-based threat monitoring and response service called ThreatDetect, which can collect logs from multiple sources for advanced correlation and security event reporting. The company currently maintains two security operations centers that monitor and support customer networks.
