Dorinda van Oosten, General Manager TSS:
“I am pleased that we have the first dedicated cybersecurity company join TSS in France. It is a company with high standing in the market and is considered one of the leaders in the French cybersecurity domain. It has a strong market presence, especially in the finance, healthcare, energy, and public sectors, verticals that we have in-depth knowledge of within TSS.

In recent years, the threat of security breaches has increased exponentially. Hackers have become very sophisticated, and companies, like our customers in the vertical markets, are more and more exposed to the roll-out of the home office. I am pleased that we have a renowned solution provider in France to keep cybercriminals at bay at our companies and their clients.

I look forward to getting Stéphane de Saint Albin and his team acquainted with the other TSS companies and helping them find their way in our library of best practices to accelerate the growth of their business and customer performance further.”


Stéphane de Saint Albin, Managing Director of Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity France:
“We are looking forward to becoming an independent business unit within the TSS Group. As a perpetual owner, TSS buys companies and holds them forever with a view to helping them grow: this creates a solid foundation for our next steps as a company. Being a French company with European ownership means our customers can continue to take advantage of our sovereign and GDPR compliant solutions. 

We are keen to learn from TSS and we are also looking forward to sharing our application security expertise with the other TSS companies.”
