Global advisory firm adds comprehensive and robust end-to-end cybersecurity services through rebrand of Vaco’s cybersecurity practice
MorganFranklin was acquired by Vaco, a global talent and solutions firm, in July 2019. The rebrand of Vaco’s cybersecurity offering to the MorganFranklin brand is one of many significant steps taken as the marketplace continues to validate the benefits of the end-to-end business solution created when Vaco and MorganFranklin joined forces.
“Vaco and MorganFranklin have significantly exceeded our wildest expectations of how we could serve clients with complementary services,” said Jerry Bostelman, Vaco co-founder and CEO. “This union is a great example of how we can combine capabilities to be stronger together. It’s exciting to see the amazing cyber team bring their Vaco history more directly into MorganFranklin and fortify their cyber capabilities across all the methodology-driven consulting services they provide.”
Managing Directors Peter Schile, Keith Hollender, Jonah Dimeo, and Brian Prentice established MorganFranklin’s cybersecurity practice.
“The addition of a comprehensive set of cybersecurity services enables MorganFranklin to further expand our ability to solve new, complex challenges for our clients,” said Chris Mann, managing partner of MorganFranklin Consulting. “Pete, Keith, Jonah, and Brian have built an industry-leading practice with expert methodologies and iconic clients. We are excited to work with this outstanding team on its next phase of growth. They bring complementary solutions and a passion for client service that align perfectly with our proven risk, data and technology offerings.”
The practice provides end-to-end cybersecurity services to help organizations identify short- and long-term cybersecurity needs, provide information and guidance for management to use in decision making, and implement comprehensive cybersecurity programs that include supporting roles, tools, and resources.
“Cybersecurity is vital to the daily operation and longevity of any business. With ever-increasing threats, it is critical to have the right foundation in place along with supportive strategic tactics to address all aspects of an organization’s security ecosystem,” said Peter Schile, managing director and cybersecurity practice lead.
“Our focus has been on building exceptional cybersecurity posture for our clients. Now, with the MorganFranklin team by our side, we can accelerate our growth as a premier cybersecurity consulting brand.”
The industry-leading cybersecurity offering will assist companies with addressing an array of challenges associated with the implementation of new technologies and protocols. Services include strategy, GRC, cybersecurity operations, identity and access management, incident response and risk intelligence, application security, and managed security services.
