HelpSystems acquires San Antonio cybersecurity firm Digital Defense

HelpSystems seems “to be rolling up a host of software solutions into a global IT automation platform for their customers in their market,” he said. “You’re seeing quite a bit of that going on in the private equity market these days because of availability of cash, historically low interest rates and rapid and dynamic change occurring in the tech space.”

In the past, Heard said, San Antonio has seen cybersecurity companies bought out and relocated to another city. He cited the WheelGroup, which Cisco acquired and moved to Austin in 1998 because “San Antonio wasn’t viewed as deep enough in cyber and tech companies to keep here.”

“My hope is...that these types of acquisitions not only speak well for the type of innovation occurring here, but also will pay benefits for our city more directly in years to come,” Heard said.

San Antonio Business Journal

Exciting news from UTSA - The University of Texas at San Antonio!

UTSA is leading the initiative with some federal backing worth a total of $111 million on behalf of the UT System.

WE ARE SA TECH

Harvard economist Edward Glaeser said: “The most successful economic development policy is to attract and retain smart people and then get out of their way.” We absolutely agree. If San Antonio is to continue its impressive growth and expand the quality of life for its citizens, it has to compete for the jobs of the Internet Century. Making this happen will require a comprehensive urban plan to attract and retain educated young people who will start technology oriented companies and drive innovative growth in existing industries (often called the “smart creatives”). The facts suggest that a 1% increase in this demographic drives a 2.3% increase in GDP. We need to focus on making SA a place where our educated young stay to build their lives – and even attract the talented being crowded (and priced) out of the bigger metro areas.

San Antonio has a chance to lead in several emerging high growth industries including Internet infrastructure, cyber security, and biotech, and be a strong player in the Internet software and services space. The only limitation to our potential is access to talent. And in this arena, despite great gains over the last decade, San Antonio is barely keeping pace with dozens of other cities that are pouring real resources and leadership into making themselves more competitive to young educated talent. In fact, we would argue we are falling behind.

The data supports this assertion. While San Antonio is making progress from a low base, our absolute gains are not enough for us to catch many other cities our size.

On the positive side, over the last 10 years, the absolute change in the population of 25-to-34-year-olds with four years of college in San Antonio has actually been pretty impressive, growing almost 50%. We have made good progress.
