Orro acquires eSecure to boost cybersecurity skills

Australian platform-enabled secure network and digital infrastructure provider Orro has acquired managed security services provider eSecure, as it strengthens its cyber protection offerings. eSecure provides information security and risk management services to a range of clients including Australia’s leading financial services providers and ASX top 100 companies. Rodd Cunico, Orro’s Chief Executive Officer, said the acquisition will add around 35 cyber experts to the company’s existing security team, as well as a Cyber Security Operations Centre in Sydney and customer follow-the-sun support services based in London.

Cunico added that Orro’s investment will help the company expand its security business, with managed detection and response (CSOC services), assurance testing, security incident response and threat and vulnerability management services sitting alongside its existing network, governance and managed security services.

“The addition of world-class cyber capability was an important piece in fully aligning Orro with our strategic goal to become Australia’s most respected platform-enabled secure network and digital infrastructure provider. We look forward to providing a wide range of secure network and cloud solutions, as well as a new cybersecurity presence in Australia,” Cunico said.

eSecure has offices in Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney and London, and has invested in a state-of-the-art cybersecurity operation centre located within a highly secure facility in Sydney. Established in 1999, the company is a CREST and 27001 certified Australian cybersecurity specialist. eSecure founder Colin Boyce said being a part of Orro will enable eSecure to extend its cybersecurity offerings to its existing customers and the Orro extended customer base, adding that the cultural alignment of eSecure’s core values with Orro’s was a key factor in the decision to join the Orro family.

“We are excited by the opportunities that Orro presents for both our people and customers. With the backing and support of Orro, we look forward to further extending our service offering and competing for larger multiyear services contracts,” Boyce said.

The acquisition follows the launch of Orro earlier this year, since which time the company has expanded to almost 400 employees to meet demand for its services. Recent significant growth can be attributed to strategic acquisitions and high levels of organic growth. The company has acquisitions throughout the country, including more than 4000 customer locations. Its customers include companies such as Australia Post, the Salvation Army, FUJIFILM Business Innovation, Bing Lee and QBE. Orro’s security includes embedded security solutions across network, cloud, data centre and device, as well as the addition of eSecure cybersecurity services specialising in the protection of data and digital infrastructure.
