Ultima acquires social engineering specialists The AntiSocial Engineer
June 2022 by Marc Jacob
Ultima Business Solutions Limited, owned by Apse Capital Limited, has acquired The AntiSocial Engineer Limited, an ethical social engineering company that helps organisations protect themselves against cyber-attacks. The firm uses online security training and unique auditing services to ensure businesses do all they can to protect against the wave of sophisticated online attacks conducted by nefarious social engineers.
The AntiSocial Engineer uses social engineering and penetration testing assessments to ensure that any business is hardened against malicious attacks. It also uses educational phishing simulations and awareness campaigns to teach and empower users with cyber security knowledge. Education is key to reducing the likelihood of people falling foul of cybercrime and its range of engaging cyber security training courses aim to make complex issues understandable.
This deal builds on Ultima’s previous acquisition of Just after Midnight in 2021 and continues the business’ strategy to grow both organically and through acquisition.
