Swedish digital forensics company Bitsec AB joins forces with Nixu to form even stronger European cybersecurity services company
Nixu has now one of the largest cybersecurity services teams in the fragmented Swedish market

Nixu, a focused cybersecurity company, has local operations in Sweden since 2016 when Europoint Networking AB and Safeside Solutions AB joined the company. Nixu’s start in Sweden has been successful and now Nixu continues to expand its operations by acquiring Bitsec AB specialized in digital forensics, penetration testing and IT security services.

Nixu’s growth vision is to become a go-to-partner in cybersecurity services for companies headquartered in Northern Europe and the best place to work for cybersecurity professionals. Following its strategy, Nixu has rapidly grown to be over 300 person strong with offices in Finland, Sweden, Netherlands, USA and Romania. In Sweden the team of over 60 cybersecurity specialists can now better deliver Nixu’s holistic cybersecurity services portfolio.

Bitsec’s strong technical expertise especially in data breach investigation, where Bitsec founder André Catry is a well-known expert, complements the existing competences of the Swedish team and enables a wider offering. Nixu is now able to offer the Nixu Cyber Defense Center –detection and response service to Sweden with local, Swedish speaking Tier 3 -incident responders on-call.

“After establishing Nixu in the Swedish market, we have received a lot of feedback from large enterprise clients who have wishes for a more comprehensive cybersecurity services offering from one partner. Now we are in a unique position to help Swedish clients to implement their new digital services securely and ensure their availability despite the cyber threats. I’m delighted to welcome Bitsec experts to join the Nixu family. I truly believe that the experts of both companies will learn a lot from each other. With this great team in Sweden, we aim to continue our growth and look for new teams and talented individuals to join the family“, says Petri Kairinen, Nixu CEO.

"The joint company is a great example of merging people and competencies generating further increase of client value. While getting to know the Nixu team it is obvious our organizations carry the same type of cultural background and motivation based upon the passion for cybersecurity and technology. This has me convinced employees from both organizations will significantly benefit from this matchup. We are also now able to offer new services, such as 24/7 detection of incidents, to our clients from Nixu’s existing portfolio. Based on the uptake in client demand, the value to our personnel and increase in services we will be able to jointly offer; I am convinced the new setup is of significant benefit to all involved", says Jesper Svegby, CEO of Bitsec AB.
