Launched in 2010, SecureMisr has been acquired by a company that operates under the umbrella of Trend Micro.
Egyptian cybersecurity services provider, SecureMisr, announced this week that it has been acquired by Cysiv, an American company that offers similar services launched by Trend Micro, global leader in enterprise data security and cybersecurity solutions.
This new combination of SecureMisr’s expertise and Cysiv’s platform, with Trend Micro’s backing promises to “[create] a more powerful force for helping enterprises better defend themselves from cyberattacks,” says Badr Khairy, co-founder and managing director of SecureMisr.
“This acquisition gives us a team of highly regarded experts with complementary skills, and well-established customer relationships that together will help launch us in the Middle East – North Africa region,” says Moataz El-Sayed, vice president of international business development with Cysiv.
“With Egypt’s strong computer science and engineering university programs,” continues El-Sayed, “Cysiv also gains access to a deep pool of highly capable cyber security talent that can support long-term, sustainable growth, and help enable us to more effectively scale our operations to support broader demand.”
