e92plus have announced their first acquisition, with the purchase of emerging cybersecurity technology VAD Securicom Global.
e92plus, who recently celebrated their 28th anniversary, have enjoyed outstanding growth in the last few years to become established as the leading independent cybersecurity VAD in the UK channel. This first acquisition marks an important step in accelerating growth, and will be part of a series of investments both in the UK and Europe as the distributor continues its aggressive growth plans.
Mukesh Gupta, CEO and Founder of e92plus, explains the purchase. “We’ve enjoyed continued organic growth over the past 9 years so acquisitions haven’t been necessary, but it’s the perfect time to kick on further and seize the moment to accelerate that growth. The UK channel has seen significant disruption, and we’re the last major independent cybersecurity VAD able to offer significant in-house resources and professional services while providing the agile, responsive customer service that we know our reseller partners value and don’t see from the larger pan-European and US distributors”.
Sam Murdoch, Managing Director of Securicom Global, says that e92plus is the perfect fit. “e92plus have an outstanding reputation for bringing emerging technologies to market and building their channel, so it’s a great fit with what we’re trying to achieve. Our portfolio of innovative new technologies is a compliment to the e92plus vendors, so there’s no overlap. This investment will help us leverage the e92plus brand and reputation, and allows us to accelerate our growth and build on the fantastic success we’ve enjoyed in the past 12 months.”
The Securicom Global vendor portfolio includes Aqua Security, Backbox, Contrast Security, Demisto and Guardicore, all operating in some of the most exciting areas of emerging cybersecurity technology. Container security, Application Security, Micro-Segmentation, Breach Detection and redirection all offer VARs, MSPs and SIs excellent opportunities to be at the front of the next cybersecurity conversation, while enjoying strong margins and profitable services opportunities.
Mukesh continues “It gives us the perfect incubation unit for new vendors that might be too early for e92plus, but where we can see great potential and want to ensure they get the focus that’s needed. Making tactical acquisitions like this helps us leverage our marketing, technical and financial services, but ensure we retain focus and specialism where our vendors and resellers benefit most”.
