Simpson Associates, a data-analytics consultancy with a strong focus on the housing sector, has bought Bleam Cyber Security.
Bleam Cyber Security will continue to operate as a separate division of Simpson Associates. Investment will be made through the development of additional cyber security propositions and managed security services, including managed detection and response, to complement the managed data services that Simpson Associates already provides.
Giles Horwood, managing director, Simpson Associates, said, “This acquisition gives us deep expertise in cyber security. Due to the sectors that we operate in, such as housing, policing, the NHS and local government, security is a vitally important part of any solution we deliver. Through our acquisition of Bleam, we can give our customers extra levels of expertise and ensure that we continue to offer ongoing support through a range of managed security services.”
