OUTSOURCE GROUP and IT SECURITY LEADER ANSEC IA to JOIN FORCES.
Creating the leading NI based Security and IT Managed Services Group
ANSEC IA become part of the Outsource Group, creating a ‘powerhouse in security-focused IT managed services’ with plans to employ a workforce of over 100 people by the end of this year and aggressive future growth plans, locally and beyond.
ANSEC IA is Northern Ireland’s leading IT security consultancy with an exceptional reputation dealing with public and private companies across the globe. It was recently named by Invest NI as a cyber security company to watch.
Terry Moore, CEO of Outsource Group, says that as a result of this merger the group will be the number 1 ‘go to’ IT partner for businesses ‘WHEN SECURITY MATTERS’.
“Outsource Group is one of the fastest-growing IT managed services companies in Northern Ireland with a wide range of SME & Enterprise customers. One of the areas in which we are seeing demand grow most quickly and where we see the biggest growth opportunity is in cyber security,” he points out.
“Our merger with ANSEC IA and the exceptional security skills and expertise they bring, will allow us to accelerate that growth and offer a truly market-leading cyber-security suite of services and solutions. I have no doubt that the combined experience and skills of both companies will deliver the leading power-house and go-to group for security-focused managed services,” he adds.
Peter Leitch, Managing Partner of ANSEC IA added: “Over 20 years we have exclusively focused on improving the security posture of businesses in NI and across the globe. Dealing with Outsource it became clear to us very quickly that they also understand why security needs to be the backbone of all things IT. They understand that security is about more than a range of products; it is a business risk management process that should cover all aspects of every organization. We believe that ANSEC IA can therefore complement and add huge value to the group and help take it to the next level in terms of offering world-class, enterprise-level, security-focused services to a wider range of customers across the UK and Ireland.”
