West Suffolk-based cyber security consultancy Foursys has been rebranded following its acquisition earlier this year by telecoms and ICT group Chess.
Foursys, which relocated from Cambridge to Manor Park at Great Barton, near Bury St Edmunds, in 2015, is now operating at Chess CyberSecurity.
Chess, which is based at Alderley Edge in Cheshire, acquired Foursys for an undisclosed sum in April.
David Pollock, founder and chief executive of Chess, said: “CyberSecurity is of upmost importance for any modern business. Our cyber team in Bury St Edmunds shares our passion for delivering technological advantage and importantly this acquisition enhances our security offering to our customers.
“Together with their expertise, we have the talent and technology needed to deliver truly integrated solutions across enterprise, mobile and cloud environments.”
James Miller, managing director of Chess CyberSecurity, added: “With the rebranding of Foursys to Chess CyberSecurity, our focus remains on providing the best IT and managed security to our customers as it has done for over 20 years.
“However now there is an exciting new opportunity for customers of Chess to take advantage of this level of expertise and for traditional Foursys customers to look at other ICT and telecoms offerings from the wider group and where they can potentially make savings on their budgets.”
