Atos and Merlin International Join Forces to Offer Managed Cybersecurity Services

Atos, a global leader in digital transformation, and Merlin International, Inc., a trusted technology provider delivering innovative cybersecurity solutions for highly-regulated industries, today announced they will partner together to offer quality managed security services (MSSP) designed to reliably meet evolving government and healthcare industry needs.

This collaboration delivers high value to customers by allowing them to focus on their missions, in many cases saving lives, and not worrying about managing software entitlements. Further, through a managed services model, customers have immediate access to the latest security innovations to protect against the most sophisticated attacks.

"By aligning with Atos, we can apply our joint expertise to address the complex security requirements of government and healthcare organizations with effective solutions," said Merlin's Chairman and CEO, David Phelps. "Together, we have a proven track record of providing organizations with deep security expertise to create sustainable, end-to-end, next-generation solutions that tackle the unique and stringent cybersecurity requirements faced by regulated entities. This partnership underscores our focus on delivering the best possible solutions available today."

"The relationship with Merlin International broadens not only our technology performance ability and reach, but provides significant value and benefit to our customers in healthcare and government," added Chad Harris, North America CEO, Atos. "Working with a leading security technology provider like Merlin to develop joint Research & Development and business activities will ultimately improve the security posture of our customers."

The agreement will include Artificial Intelligence (AI) and digital transformation products and services, all delivered as managed services. Merlin will provide deep knowledge into the government and healthcare domains, while Atos brings its cutting-edge digital solutions that combine computing power, security and systems integration.

This partnership is yet another example of Merlin's leadership position within regulated industries and comes on the heels of its May announcement that the company secured approximately $200 million in enterprise-wide technology contracts to support the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Atos continues to grow its security practice within North America. Today's announcement follows last month's deal with the Commonwealth of Virginia where Atos will deliver advanced cybersecurity services for the Virginia Information Technology Agency (VITA).
