Fujitsu Strengthens Security Portfolio With Inphysec Acquisition

Must Read

In a bid to expand its security services capabilities, Fujitsu has bought New Zealand cyber security business InPhySec.

This is the company’s second-largest deal in history, according to Deal Street Global Intelligence. The acquisition furthers Fujitsu’s merger and acquisition strategy, which has already included Versor, oobe, and Enable Professional Services.

Customers in New Zealand will now have access to specialised security consulting and managed services as a result of this acquisition.

InPhySec’s client base includes clients from various sectors, including Fujitsu ANZ’s core sectors of defence, the public sector, healthcare, retail, financial services, and transportation. It will also access Fujitsu’s comprehensive digital transformation services and solutions portfolio.

Following the acquisition, InPhySec CEO Marc Barlow will report to Graeme Beardsell, executive VP and CEO of Fujitsu Asia Pacific.

“Now more than ever, it is crucial to safeguard businesses, government agencies and everyday citizens. This investment does just that. Our recent acquisition of InPhySec extends our managed security services to New Zealand and the surrounding area.” Beardsell said.

“Fujitsu has a strong cyber security team, and this acquisition will enhance our capabilities further as an end-to-end managed security services provider.”

InPhySec was founded in 2015 and provided security consulting and managed security services. Its security services, delivered through 24/7 Security Operations Centers (SOCs) in three locations, include SIEM (security information and event management), cloud, network, and endpoint detection and response.

Specialist services are provided through top-secret grade data centre rooms, which give data localisation and further physical protection, services of critical importance to the New Zealand government and other regulated organisations.

Following the acquisition, InPhySec’s existing leadership team and staff will remain in place. The company will continue to operate from its current base in Auckland. 

Fujitsu has a solid cyber security team, and this acquisition will enhance our capabilities further as an end-to-end managed security services provider. With InPhySec, the company will be able to provide an even higher level of service and protection to our clients in the Asia Pacific region.
