Managed service provider (MSP) Claranet has formed a dedicated cybersecurity arm after integrating two acquisitions.
The London-based firm acquired ethical hacking firm NotSoSecure in July this year, adding to its deal for security provider Sec-1 in 2017. The new unit will be run under the Claranet Cyber Security umbrella.
Michel Robert, managing director at Claranet UK, said: "Security is a top priority for a large number of businesses, so we have worked hard over the last couple of years to really strengthen our offering in this area.
"Acquiring both Sec-1 and NotSoSecure has been an instrumental part of this process, but it's also crucial that we're able to leverage the skills and services of both businesses in a way that maximises their impact, while also maintaining the strength and prestige of each individual brand.
"The Claranet Cyber Security unit aims to achieve all these objectives."
On top of the acquisitions, Claranet claims to have invested in its own security capabilities, particularly in France and Portugal.
