“Telia’s Alerta business is a good strategic fit for AddSecure with a strong expertise and knowledge of the market", says Stefan Albertsson, CEO of AddSecure.
With Telia’s established Alerta portfolio of secure alarm transmission and value-added services, AddSecure becomes the number 1 player within smart alarms in Finland.
AddSecure, a leading European provider of premium solutions for secure data and critical communications, has signed an agreement to acquire Telia’s Alerta business from Telia Finland. Telia´s Alerta offering comprises solutions that enable secure alarm transmission and remote management of multiple systems targeted at the public sector and private companies. The transaction has a strategic value as it establishes AddSecure as the leading provider in the alarms transmission market in Finland.
“Telia’s Alerta business is a good strategic fit for AddSecure with a strong expertise and knowledge of the market. With the team and services onboard we have reinforced our platform for further growth and expansion in Finland”, says Stefan Albertsson, CEO of AddSecure.
Telia’s Alerta services customers will experience no interruption in their alarm monitoring service, and none of the changes associated with the transition will affect the operation of the alarm systems.
“As an established alarm transmission and secure communications and solutions provider, we look forward to providing Telia´s Alerta services customers with the same level of service and integrity that they have enjoyed from Telia. For Telia´s Alerta team, the acquisition is an opportunity to join an expansive European provider that has secure and monitored alarms transmissions at the core of its business”, says Hannu Kupila, Country Manager, AddSecure Finland.
Telia´s Alerta business has 19 employees that will transfer to AddSecure with the acquisition.
