Convergent is pleased to announce that it has acquired Logically Secure Limited, the Cheltenham headquartered, technical testing, incident response and cyber security consultancy business.
Logically Secure’s market leading CyberCPR™ incident response and case management platform enables teams to work together on sensitive information and files regardless of where they are in the world and is a natural fit to Convergent’s existing services. In addition to its incident response platform, Logically Secure’s security and compliance testing experience which includes its Cyber Essentials and other cyber security related services, brings a host of complementary skills to Convergent’s offering, further strengthening its reputation as a global leader in the Media & Entertainment content security space.
Chris Johnson, CEO at Convergent, said: “I have long been an admirer of the Logically Secure business, having closely monitored their development and bringing to market of the CyberCPR platform, which is both highly innovative and increasingly relevant in the current environment. There is already a requirement from our existing client base for this type of technology and I believe there are synergies between us that will be mutually beneficial to the two businesses across a broader range of sectors. I am delighted to be working with the existing team at Logically Secure to further develop the product, which will allow them to leverage our own experience of incident response needs in the content security, infosec and privacy market places.”
Founder of Logically Secure and creator of the CyberCPR™ platform, Steve Armstrong, commented: “The global reach of the Convergent business will open up a host of new markets for the incident response platform and the team are keen to get to work in ensuring CyberCPR realises its potential as well as maintaining and developing the service to our existing clients. Logically Secure have worked with Chris and Convergent for many years in the technical assurance testing field and given that relationship, I am sure that this acquisition is a good fit.”
This announcement follows the acquisition by Convergent earlier this year, of its joint venture partner, QPQ Innovations Limited, a software development business involved in the creation and testing of its own bespoke case management platform.
Convergent’s Senior Vice President of Corporate Affairs, Phil Herbert, said: “We are constantly on the lookout for opportunities to grow the Convergent business and address the increasing demand from our clients for world class security and assurance services. The addition of a company with the reputation and calibre of Logically Secure certainly ticks that box. In addition, being able to access a top-class group of coders will provide an internal solution to our own development needs across a number of projects and we are excited at the enhanced possibilities for both businesses.”
