April 20, 2021

Netic Security & Analytics was established in 2018 as an independent business unit within Netic, with the aim of offering customers managed services within security and data analytics, and the objective of conquering substantial market share within these areas.

Since its establishment, Netic Security & Analytics has grown both in revenue and in number of employees, which in turn has led to an increase in scope of the services offered.

“IBM’s visions for Cyber Protection match our own. On top of that, their global experience working with security partners has been a great catalyst for us to develop and expand on our managed security offerings to Danish customers.”

Partnership with IBM In early 2019, Netic and IBM agreed to form a partnership centered around IBM security software and Netic’s competencies on security services in general.

One of the aims of this partnership was to establish an around-the-clock Security Operations Center (SOC) in Netic, based on IBM security software and of course to grow Netic’s revenue for the Security & Analytics business unit. These goals were achieved in 2020 with the establishment of the Netic SOC and the milestone of an annual revenue of DKK 50 million. On top of that, in October 2020, IBM awarded Netic “Outstanding Security Partner 2020” for the Nordic region.

The award was underlined by the fact that Netic managed to secure the largest deal for IBM Security in the EMEA region in 2020, selling IBM security software to an undisclosed Danish Government customer

“Netic’s strong security and project management competencies have contributed to Netics winning several new and large contracts within IBM Security. A fantastic partnership.”

Ulla Theil – Business Partner & ECO Systems Director, IBM Denmark

Managed services sets the stage for further growth

Going into 2021, Netic, as the Trifork Cyber Protection business unit, is set to increase both in terms of employed security consultants and revenue.

The strategy is to increase market share with managed security services and to position Netic as a trusted partner for our customers across verticals within security, as Netic already is a trusted partner in the field of application operations. The means to do just that are in place. A highly skilled team of dedicated security experts and a very strong sales pipeline together serve as the foundations for continued growth of the Trifork Cyber Protection business area.
