LIGATT Security International to Sell National Cyber Security and AmIHackerProof.com to Northstar Global Business Services for $1 Million
LOS ANGELES, June 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Northstar Global Business Services (OTC: MDIN) announced it has purchased websites NationalCyberSecurity.com and AmIHackerProof.com from LIGATT Security International (OTC: LGTT) for $1 million in stock and/or cash.
Northstar's primary goal was to become the leader in the still emerging business brokerage industry, but with the collapse of the housing market, business brokerage just didn't cut it, so Northstar went back to the drawing board, and scaled back operations while seeking to go in a direction that had enough growth potential but was not saturated and would be profitable for years to come. The $100 Billion worldwide cyber security business is that industry.
"We hear about hackers crashing websites and stealing credit card information on a daily basis, and are mostly defenseless against it," says Raymond Barton, CEO of Northstar. "Having been a hardcore programmer and leader in emerging technologies for almost 20 years, I knew immediately that if I was going to go in this direction, I needed to partner with one of the best. Fortunately, in seeking out that partnership, I met Gregory Evans, and LIGATT."
LIGATT Security is the operator of NationalCyberSecurity.com and AmIHackerProof.com. LIGATT purchased NationalCyberSecurity.com in 2009 because of its strong name and Google ranking. Since then, NationalCyberSecurity.com has become a strong, dominate news provider to consumers, security professionals from around the world and also media. "I found during my research that there is no other security professional that could get Northstar the exposure we need more than Gregory Evans (GregoryDEvans.com)," says Barton. "Evans had more than 8 million people last year hear or see him on radio and television. This year we found Evans had more than 20 million people hear him speak in the media and it is only half way through the year. At press time this morning, Evans was a guest of Fox News Radio on over 10 radio stations throughout the country. Where else can you find a professional in the cyber security industry that has done CNN, Fox News TV, Fox News Radio, Entertainment Tonight, AP, BBC, ABC, NBC, CBS, and the History Channel, just to name a few! Even with the controversy in the last 8 months surrounding Evans, he was able to still make major deals happen like the distribution deal with D&H distributors who distributes AmIHackerProof.com to retailers. Evans can get Northstar the exposure it needs," says Barton.
