Total Specific Solutions has acquired UBIKA
Total Specific Solutions (“TSS”) has acquired UBIKA (formerly Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity France), a former entity of the Rohde & Schwarz group. This is the 14th company to join TSS in the French-speaking market, and the Group’s first dedicated to cybersecurity.
The solutions offer comprehensive protection for web applications and APIs to a wide range of customers, both public and private, with UBIKA (formerly Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity France) having a particularly strong presence among financial and government institutions.
UBIKA’s Web Application Firewall protects all web applications and APIs by blocking malicious requests and allowing legitimate traffic. UBIKA Cloud Protector solution makes it easy to configure and manage for companies wishing to solve their application layer security problems in the cloud. The application and API portfolio is comprehensive, with solutions that can be deployed by the customer on-premise, in the cloud or both. The managed service option is also available on a subscription basis. The Trusted Application Factory solution provides protection for cloud-native applications, integrating security right into the software source code, a solution tailored to the needs of DevSecOps teams.
Dorinda van Oosten, General Manager of TSS:
“We are very pleased to be joining the first company dedicated to cybersecurity within the TSS Group. It’s a recognised company, considered to be one of the leaders in the field of cybersecurity in France. It has a strong reputation, particularly in the financial, medical, energy and public sectors, markets that we at TSS know particularly well. Over the past few years, threats to IT security have increased exponentially. Cyber attacks are becoming more and more complex, and companies, like our customers in various sectors, are increasingly exposed, particularly with the spread of teleworking. I’m delighted that we have a reputable supplier in France to keep cybercriminals away from our businesses and their customers.
We look forward to Stéphane de Saint Albin and his team getting to know the other companies in the Group, so that they can help them in their orientation and share best practices to accelerate the growth of their business and performance of their customers.”
Stéphane de Saint Albin, Managing Director of UBIKA:
“We are looking forward to forming a new independent entity within the TSS Group. As a perpetual owner, TSS buys companies without ever selling them, with the aim of helping them grow: this provides a solid foundation for the next steps in our business. Being a French company and European owned means that our customers can continue to benefit from our sovereign and RGPD compliant solutions. We are willing to learn from the TSS Group and share our application security expertise with other companies in the group.”
