Coalfire has acquired Veris Group, creating one of the largest providers of cybersecurity services on the market. The deal was funded in part by new equity investments by affiliates of the Carlyle Group LP (Nasdaq: CG) and the Chertoff Group, which partnered to take a majority stake in Coalfire in 2015.

"Our collective customers will have the advantage of a more comprehensive set of services focusing on assessing cyber risk and testing against real world threats, which will create a complete picture of possible vulnerabilities, threats, and gaps that could impact their business," says Larry Jones, CEO of Coalfire.
