UK and Ireland cyber security specialist Integrity360 is accelerating its European expansion plans after securing a major strategic investment from private equity firm August Equity and strengthening its management team with the appointment of Ian Brown as Executive Chairman.
An established entrepreneur, Brown has been running technology businesses for over 25 years, including SecureData, the UK cyber security services business backed by August Equity, which was acquired by Orange in 2019.
He is being joined at Integrity360 by fellow SecureData veteran Matt Tomlinson who will run the company’s UK business development operations.
Integrity360 Founder and CEO Eoin Goulding, who is taking on the new role of President, plans to use the funding to expand in Europe and extend the company’s services portfolio, including with next generation managed detection and response (MDR) services.
He said: “Over the past 16 years the company has successfully grown to become a leading cyber security specialist within Ireland and in the UK. We have a fantastic team with a thriving culture, and I am delighted to now work with both August and Ian who will continue to bolster our service capability and expand our reach internationally.”
Integrity360 reported revenue growth of 15% in 2020.
