First step in creating an independent European security company
Cybersecurity specialist Computest Security has acquired Incide, a leading Spanish consultancy organization for incident response services. With the acquisition, Computest Security adds experience and expertise in incident response and expands the organization to more than a hundred specialists. The acquisition is Computest Security's first step in creating an independent European security company with the goal of having a presence in the fastest growing European markets within three years.
The strength and expertise of Computest Security lies in the field of prevention and detection. Their specialists provide services like pentesting and managed detection and response. Also Computest Security has a strong reputation for research into vulnerabilities with its research unit Sector 7. Incide's team of digital forensic experts and incident response experts work with customers on a daily basis to address complex security incidents and limit their impact. There is also a great deal of in-house knowledge about current threat actors, which, combined with advanced adversary simulation and endpoint protection services, enables Incide to provide its clients with the most effective security measures. Among these clients are banking institutions and other organizations listed at the Spanish stock index, IBEX35.
Support with every security problem
Thanks to their complementary expertise, Computest Security and Incide can now support customers in Europe and beyond with any security issue, be it operational or strategic, technical or non-technical issues. The collaboration also offers the opportunity to take Sector 7's advanced research into vulnerabilities and new threats to an even higher level.
“In addition to strengthening our capability and expertise in the field of incident response, we were looking for an organization that matches with our culture in which our people and customers are at the absolute core,” says Hartger Ruijs, CEO of Computest Security EU. “With Incide we have found such a company. Incide shares our vision on promoting security, has a similar organization culture and has built a strong track record since its foundation in 2005. Together, we want to further expand our organization and also have other ambitious security companies with the same mindset and passion, join us to continue our growth within Europe.”
Abraham Pasamar, CEO and founder of Incide: “We are delighted to become part of Computest Security and to build a strong European security organization together. Because the security market continues to consolidate and customers increasingly operate internationally, it’s important to have sufficient clout. Joining forces with Computest Security creates strong synergy with which we can address a larger market and from which our customers and employees will reap the benefits.”
