The world of IT is always changing and acquisitions are a fact of business life today.

This has been the major event of the year for DataExpress with it being acquired by LandStar, Inc., the parent company of Data443 Risk Mitigation, Inc.Landstar, Inc. is a publicly traded company with an ambitious agenda. What is good news for the HPE NonStop community is that with the acquisition of DataExpress, the company now extends its reach into new market segments. HPE with its NonStop product line provides an entry into the dynamic world of payments, given that globally the majority of financial institutions rely on NonStop to power their mission critical financial transaction processing.
The acquisition of DataExpress also represents an opportunity for the DataExpress team to become integrated with a much bigger company and there are readily accepted benefits that come with size – financial institutions have always been wary of doing business with software vendors that perhaps don’t quite have the global reach expected from partners providing critical middleware, infrastructure, tools and utilities. Data443 clearly has a much bigger global presence than DataExpress and has access to additional resources, online systems and processes all geared towards providing their collective customer base with a superior experience.
