June 20, 2018

Eurofins Digital Testing, a global player in end-to-end quality assurance and testing services, has acquired Insite Security, a specialist in information security services, to reinforce its portfolio of cybersecurity services offered to companies around the globe. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Insite Security provides insights into the security level of IT systems of corporations and non-profit organisations. The company provides security awareness and training to create safe behaviour amongst employees, implementation assessments and audits to apply appropriate security policies, and security testing and monitoring to ensure compliance across infrastructure, systems and applications based on certifiable international standards.

Within its cybersecurity portfolio, Eurofins currently provides a range of services including security assessments, compliance services, security strategy and governance, device security testing, and content security compliance for the Digital Production Partnership (founded by ITV, BBC and Channel 4). The addition of Insite Security expands Eurofins Digital Testing’s global cyber security footprint to the Netherlands. Earlier this year, Eurofins Digital Testing also announced that it acquired Edge Testing Solutions, a software testing provider in the UK. Eurofins Digital Testing operates globally with facilities in Belgium, Sweden, The Netherlands, UK, US, Poland and Hong Kong.

“With today’s digital transformation and increased connectivity, knowledge of security risks is essential to mitigate IT-related risks and ensure a safer IT infrastructure” said Johan Craeybeckx, Business Line Director, Eurofins Digital Testing International. “Insite Security is known for providing superior IT security services, and we look forward to extending their capabilities across the globe and offering state-of-the-art cyber security solutions to protect our clients’ connected systems and data.”

“We are honoured and excited to join Eurofins Digital Testing and to work together to address security vulnerabilities and security awareness for companies around the globe,” said Erik Rutkens, CEO of Insite Security. “The combined strengths of both organizations will allow us to provide quality assurance for information security processes across a variety of sectors. We look forward to a successful future together.”
