Managed services provider Getronics has bought the assets of fellow service provider RedSiren.
Getronics said that the newly merged company would offer large enterprises the most sophisticated information security services available to protect vital information assets and optimise the productivity and effectiveness of their workforce.
RedSiren delivers managed security services, consulting and security education to large enterprises.
It also owns and operates the International Information Integrity Institute (I-4), whose members include more than 65 chief security officers and “thought leaders” from Global 500 companies and research institutes throughout the world.
The acquisition enables Getronics to deliver security services integrated into its existing managed helpdesk, desk-side support and IP-enabled converged communications solutions.
Getronics will integrate RedSiren’s security offerings into its existing global portfolio of IT solutions. Getronics said the portfolio optimised the performance of a client’s workforce by integrating communications, managing network availability, enhancing application functionality and delivering innovations required by today’s and tomorrow’s mobile workforce.
