Six Degrees Gobbles Up Cybersecurity Consultancy
MSP plans to use new acquisition to expand its security offerings
Comms provider Six Degrees has snapped London-based consultancy CNS Group to bolster its cybersecurity offering.
The deal will see CNS, which has a headcount of 50, add around £7m in revenue to Six Degrees' top line.
David Howson, Six Degrees CEO, said: "The increasingly complex cybersecurity threat landscape is a major challenge for businesses, which struggle to align IT resources against the risks they face.
"Existing clients want to place more of their IT estate with us, and security is a vital part of the picture.
"CNS Group's loyal client base, serviced by a strong management team and talented staff, provides the perfect fit to enable Six Degrees to offer a broader set of cybersecurity services."
CNS Group was established in 1999 and has revenues of over £7m. It currently has a headcount of 50.
Financial details of the deal were not disclosed, but Six Degrees intends to ramp up its security portfolio to provide government-accredited managed security services through CNS Group's dedicated cybersecurity operations centre.
Shannon Simpson, CEO of CNS Group, said he is confident that the integration with Six Degrees will be "smooth and successful".
"Joining Six Degrees represents the next step in our strategic plan to increase our market share and further enhance our flagship cybersecurity services," he said.
"With our shared focus on UK data sovereignty and protecting businesses, this is a great move.
"Working with Six Degrees will enable us to bring our highly accredited security offerings to all the services they offer, and we will give clients additional peace of mind and assurance that their data assets are safe."
