(Adnkronos) – SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico and BARCELONA, Spain, 7 February 2023 /PRNewswire/ — GM Sectec, a global leader in cybersecurity, and A2Secure, experts in digital security and managed cybersecurity, have announced a strategic alliance to jointly bring their cybersecurity and governance solutions, which prevent and manage risks associated with information security, to organizations throughout the European continent.
In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic and growing geopolitical challenges, the adoption of a common approach to cybersecurity and information security has become a necessity. The European Commission has, thus, proposed regulations on cybersecurity and information security. By establishing common frameworks and priorities, these policies will strengthen inter-institutional cooperation, minimize exposure to risk, and advance the consolidation of the EU’s security culture.
The alliance between the two leaders in cybersecurity is in line with these actions, offering GM Sectec’s experience in cybersecurity solutions and services, governance, and compliance with standards related to digital risk management. As for A2Secure, they lead the European market with managed cybersecurity services and provisional consulting for companies that need to improve their maturity and quickly establish or expand their security capacity, protecting these organizations against constant cybersecurity threats and ensuring business continuity.
It is vital that companies in any business sector consolidate information security management teams and implement effective cybersecurity strategies that allow them to continue growing, offering their customers a secure shopping experience. Through this alliance, organizations will be supported with responsible innovation in the form of in-depth cyber defense, supporting the development and implementation of strategic solutions for the prevention of and protection against threats, safeguarding the integrity of their systems and protecting consumers.
“In a rapidly evolving global economy, businesses in Europe are in critical need of cybersecurity tools to help protect their data. We are very happy to consolidate this alliance with A2Secure, to work together, help organizations understand their true cyber risks, and offer them effective and timely tools to strengthen their security,”, said Héctor Guillermo Martínez, president of GM Sectec.
“For A2Secure, this alliance represents the growth and enhancement of our portfolio of services and the expansion of our global coverage. We are experts in the challenges presented by information security and regulatory compliance. Our goal is to continue expanding and innovating our range of services in order to respond to continuous risks, changing regulations, or increasingly sophisticated cyber attacks that our clients must respond to with agility. The union with GM Sectec means expanding our borders with a global partner to which we will provide a specialized range of services and an on-site response in the EMEA region,”says Albert Morell, president of A2Secure.
