Kisco Systems Acquires DXR Security

MAY 1 2024, Ridgefield, CT – Kisco Systems, a leading IBM i security software and services company, today announced the acquisition of DXR Security. DXR is a prominent provider of security services and education for the IBM i (AS/400, iSeries) computing platform.

The acquisition marks a significant milestone in Kisco Systems' strategic growth plan. It bolsters the company’s ability to deliver high quality services to its security customers and strengthens its market presence in the IBM i security space.

“To be the best, we need to work with the best,” says Kisco Systems owner and CEO, Justin Loeber. “Adding Carol Woodbury as a Senior Advisor brings infinite knowledge and wisdom about all things related to IBM i security. She literally wrote the book (two books, actually) on the topic. Carol’s lifetime of IBM i technical knowledge and experience will make its way into every product and service we offer at Kisco Systems.”

We are impressed with the way Kisco continuously improves and enhances their IBM i product line. We know our legacy will be in good hands.”
