With Marlin’s support, Fidelis will increase its sales and marketing resources to underscore the value we are bringing to our customers, and in expanding our product capabilities and our channels worldwide.”
Fidelis offers products and services that protect some of the world’s most recognizable brands from data theft, financial loss and reputational damage by allowing them to quickly detect, respond and remediate cyber breaches.
