Unica signs agreement to acquire Nsecure


Hoevelaken/Barendrecht (the Netherlands), 21 November 2017 – Unica, a Triton Fund IV company, has signed an agreement to acquire Nsecure, a leading specialist in the management of complex access control and security issues in the Netherlands. Nsecure forms part of Nedap, a listed company. Completion is subject to regulatory approval. The purchase price has not been disclosed.

The acquisition means that Unica can now build on its specialised know-how in the field of security management and access control. Unica Security, a Unica subsidiary, has been actively involved in this area for a number of years. The addition of Nsecure is the catalyst for opening up new opportunities in the provision of integrated technological solutions for its clients.

John Quist, Unica’s CEO, explains: “Security and privacy are contemporary issues confronting every organisation. In implementing technological solutions in buildings, where security aspects play an increasingly important role, Unica aims to perform the role of facilitator for its clients. The expertise and all-round package of services offered by Nsecure is the perfect foil for the know-how we already have in-house at Unica. In that respect, Nsecure is a significant addition to our existing Unica Security organisation. We are absolutely convinced that Nsecure will be able to take full advantage of our own experience in the field of ICT and sustainability and so consolidate their strategy of the past few years. We have the absolute ambition to continue investing in this discipline.”

Hans van Driel, managing director of Nsecure, adds the following: “Nsecure is delighted to enter into partnership with Unica and join forces with one of the leading providers of technical services in the Netherlands. As our new shareholding partner, Unica embraces our vision and strategy and this will enable us to consolidate our leading position in the Dutch access control market.”
