Irish cyber security firm Integrity360 has purchased UK IT security specialist Metadigm for an undisclosed sum, as the firm expands its presence in the UK.

Metadigm has been operating for more than 20 years and has an expected turnover of £3m (€3.4m) for 2017.

The acquisition will help Integrity360 deliver enhanced industry knowledge and expertise to customers and will add to its offices in London and Birmingham.

"It’s fantastic to be integrating Metadigm’s expertise into our overall business, reinforcing our growth strategy and introducing a further skill set to our clients in Ireland," Eoin Goulding, CEO, Integrity360, said.

In Ireland Integrity360 employs 175 people at its headquarters in Sandyford, Dublin, and it is in the process of hiring a further 150 roles to be filled by the end of 2018.

Last year the firm reported year-on-year growth of 53pc, while its turnover increased by €13m to €37.5m.

Founded in 2005 Integrity360 works with more than 300 companies in Ireland and internationally providing managed cyber security, incident handling, cyber risk and assurance, and cyber security integration in order to secure clients’ information, networks and infrastructure.

This year the firm added to its senior leadership team bringing in Padraig Carley as its chief financial officer and promoting Eric Barkman to the role of chief operating officer.
