AddSecure, a leading European provider of premium solutions for secure data and critical communications, announced today that it is acquiring the business unit iZafe Security (iZafe AB) from iZafe Group (NASDAQ First North: IZAFE B). Through the acquisition of iZafe AB, a leader in personal security, AddSecure strengthens both its Smart Rescue offering and its strategy to become a leading provider of smart and secure communication solutions in Europe.
iZafe AB provides a wide range of personal alarms that increase safety in the workplace and among the customers are over 90 municipalities and several large companies.
“iZafe’s personal alarms and other security and safety solutions complement AddSecure's product portfolio perfectly and strengthen our position as the leading provider of personal safety and solutions for lone workers in Sweden,” says Stefan Albertsson, CEO of AddSecure.
iZafe Group AB will, with the sale, focus on the Healthcare business unit and thus become a pure Life Science company.
