HSD Founding Partner Fox-IT Acquired by British NCC Group
The British NCC Group plc has reached an agreement to acquire HSD Founding Partner Fox-IT. The Fox-IT brand will continue to be used and the current board will remain in place. Fox-IT will now be able to apply its technology internationally as NCC Group has a multi-national footprint with approximately 30 global offices.
Menno van der Marel, CEO and Co-founder of Fox-IT, said: “For Fox-IT this is a great opportunity. By benefiting from the international reach of NCC Group we can service our current and future clients and partners even better, all over the world, with great technologies”.
Rob Cotton, CEO of NCC Group, said: “This is a unique opportunity to acquire a leading, substantial European cyber security business that focuses on security analysis and threat intelligence; at a time that organisations globally are only now beginning to appreciate that they need to be proactive, not reactive, in dealing with cyber security.
“Fox has an impressive reputation and brand with a high quality client base, including government security departments and global organisations. The business also has a range of complementary professional and managed services and products which we aim to distribute internationally.”
