Overland Park-based data security firm DataLocker recently acquired a Swedish tech firm that will expand its encryption technologies.
DataLocker on Tuesday announced the acquisition of BlockMaster, a USB security tech company, for an undisclosed amount. The deal will augment DataLocker’s encryption management platform that allows its clients to track the use and location of sensitive data.
“Our mission has always been to provide encryption solutions that are ‘simply secure,’” DataLocker CEO Jay Kim said in a release. “We are confident that our acquisition of BlockMaster will support our mission by adding proven technology as well as a new revenue stream.”
Founded in 2007, DataLocker created an array of hardware and software encryption products for government, military and businesses. In addition to its Overland Park headquarters, the company has offices in the U.K. and Korea.
Kim previously was a fellow in the Pipeline Entrepreneurial Fellowship program. The company’s investors include FireMon CEO Jody Brazil, Fishnet founder Gary Fish and Archer Technologies founder Jon Darbyshire.
