“We have ambitious growth plans and the selective acquisition of complementary businesses is a key element of this. While we will continue to seek further acquisition opportunities, both in the Irish and UK markets, it’s imperative that these involve experienced and knowledgeable service providers to ensure growth is not at the expense of service quality.”
Robert Baker, founder, Baker Security & Networks said: “Our combined skillsets and services now offer a unique proposition to customers in Ireland and the UK, where we can provide an end-to-end service from deep inside the customer’s network, all the way to the internet, while managing every network and security element in-between.”
