Nomios Group, a leading European provider of cybersecurity services and solutions, announced today that it has completed the acquisition of a majority stake in Aditinet, a prominent cybersecurity company in the Italian market. The acquisition strengthens Nomios’ European position as one of the leading cybersecurity service companies.
“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” explained Sébastien Kher, CEO of Nomios Group.
With the addition of Aditinet, the Nomios Group annual revenue grows to EUR 400M, and its consolidated headcount grows to over 600 FTEs throughout its seven European markets. The current CEO and Founder (Paolo Marsella) and CFO (Alberto Mez) will remain minority shareholders and will continue to manage the company and will lead the integration within the Nomios Group.
“Becoming part of Nomios is the ideal next step in realising 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” said Paolo Marsella, CEO of Aditinet. “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”.
