SecureData became the largest independent managed security services provider in the UK under August Equity’s ownership. It consults, supports and manages cyber security risks for mid and large tier enterprises.
The business provides a comprehensive range of professional, support and managed cybersecurity services to both private and public sector customers. SecureData’s consultancy arm SensePost includes some of the world’s most pre-eminent security experts who in addition to advising customers, participate in defining security standards, provide regular research for the benefit of the industry and advise national governments and defence organisations. August Equity initially invested in SecureData in 2012 and supported the management team in making four bolt-on acquisitions, including Cygnia Technologies in April 2017.
August Equity realised its investment in SecureData in January 2019 in a sale to global telecoms group, Orange. SecureData is now part of Orange Cyberdefence.
