What a difference a year makes. You may recall that in early 2019, we announced some major news – SecureData had been acquired by the Orange Group, and would become part of Orange Cyberdefense, the Group’s expert cybersecurity business unit. Fast forward to January 2020, and I’m sure you’re keen to understand what’s happened – and what’s still happening – a year on from the landmark development in our security history. Well, let us fill you in and give you a sneak peek of what’s in store for our bright futures together as one entity.
In 2019, the Orange Group bought two companies – one of them was us, SecureData. The other was SecureLink, a European, award-winning, cybersecurity company. Together, we are now Orange Cyberdefense, Europe’s largest managed security, threat detection and threat intelligence services provider. For the majority of last year, we continued business as usual. SecureData reported into Orange but operated relatively autonomously while the finer details were being agreed.
Now, in January 2020, we start the full rebranding process, in order to embrace the Orange Cyberdefense identity. What does this mean in reality? Well, to start with there will be small but gradual changes, some of which have already happened – you’ll see our emails changing, the website be updated and we’ll start to talk to you more about what the Orange Cyberdefense team as a whole can offer you by way of security support.
By March 2020, we aim to fully launch (externally) our corporate branding globally – this includes the website, customer announcements, office signage and decorations, sales collateral, external events. You’ll start to understand more about who we are as combined forces; one entity with ambitious goals for the future.
What does all of this mean for the services we provide? Bigger and better. We will continue to help customers anticipate threats, protect their IT assets, detect breaches and respond to incidents – but on a global scale, and with more resources behind us. With a 25+ years track record in information security, over 250+ researchers & analysts and 16 SOCs distributed across the world, we can offer global protection with local expertise.
As a team, our goal is to become the European cybersecurity leader by 2022, tapping into the combined expertise of the Orange Group, SecureData and SecureLink to cement our position in the market. We hope you’ll continue to be a big part of that journey – whether you’re a current customer, partner or affiliate – now, and in the longer term.
