Cybersecurity Acquisition: Nomios Group buys Aditinet
Nomios Group, a European provider of cybersecurity services and solutions, announced that it has completed the acquisition of a majority stake in Aditinet, a cybersecurity company operating in the Italian market, for an undisclosed sum.
This is technology M&A deal number 57 that MSSP Alert and sister site ChannelE2E have covered so far in 2023.
Why the Deal Made Sense
Sébastien Kher, CEO of Nomios Group, explained how the acquisition strengthens Nomios’ European cybersecurity market position:
“This acquisition marks an important step in Nomios’ continued growth and success, and we see many benefits in terms of a shared vendor portfolio, customer relationship and service offerings. Not only does the acquisition of Aditinet provide the Nomios Group with a significant expertise and strong customer base in Italy, but it also allows us to add new services such as ethical hacking to our portfolio.”
With the addition of Aditinet, the Nomios Group annual revenue grows to EUR 400 million, and its consolidated headcount grows to more than 600 full-time employees throughout its seven European markets, according to a prepared statement.
Leadership Structure Intact
Aditinet’s current CEO and founder, Paolo Marsella, and Alberto Mez, chief financial officer, will remain minority shareholders and will continue to manage the company and will lead the integration within the Nomios Group.
Commenting on the deal, Marsella said:
“Becoming part of Nomios is the ideal next step in realizing Aditinet’s vision of making IT and the cloud the most secure environment for our customers and in further consolidating our relationships with critical vendors. Nomios will provide European scale and expertise to further accelerate our growth in the Italian market.
“We look forward to immediately take advantage of Nomios’ famous SOC capabilities to help monitor our customer’s security perimeters and rely on their many references in SASE. We see a lot of talks about these technologies in the market, and our new Nomios colleagues have already proven that they can deliver in both respects.”
