NTT Security Forms Strategic Partnership with Advisory Firm, Momentum Cyber
01 August 2019
Momentum Cyber to support NTT’s global cybersecurity strategy and growth initiatives through acquisitions, partnerships and strategic investments
NTT Security, the specialized security division and center of excellence in security for NTT, has formed a strategic alliance with Momentum Cyber, the premier trusted advisor to the cybersecurity industry. This new partnership will see Momentum Cyber serve as Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) advisor to support NTT’s global cybersecurity growth strategy in its mission to deliver total resilient business solutions for its clients’ digital transformation needs.
NTT Security is one of 28 remarkable companies brought together to become the leading global technology services provider, NTT (announced on 1st July 2019). Working with Momentum Cyber, NTT Security will be able to leverage its industry knowledge and network in the cybersecurity ecosystem to identify and action strong investment opportunities.
NTT Security will expand and enhance its portfolio to accommodate new and evolving trends. It will also develop its existing product and service offerings to support clients that are increasingly demanding a single source security provider. This is due to the overwhelming deluge of solutions on the market which is causing complexity and therefore driving clients to adopt a ‘back to basics’ approach when it comes to implementing existing or new technologies.
Overall, the strategic partnership means NTT’s clients will benefit from the right mix of Managed Security Services, Security Consulting Services and security technology now and in the future.
“We are thrilled to welcome Momentum Cyber as a partner of NTT Security and form this strategic relationship between our two companies. By combining our global capabilities with Momentum Cyber’s unrivalled M&A knowledge and experience advising both emerging and large companies, we are well positioned to complement our current solutions with additional capabilities. Together, we will extend the NTT brand globally and further NTT as a global leader in a dynamic and high-growth industry,” said Matthew Gyde, CEO, NTT Security.
“Speaking for the entire firm, we are honored to be working with NTT Security and embrace this opportunity to further its mission and extend its global reach. We look forward to supporting the specialized security division of NTT as a trusted advisor through its next chapter of growth – bringing to bear our firm’s extensive capabilities and vast network to help NTT Security achieve its strategic objectives,” concluded Eric McAlpine and Michael Tedesco, Momentum Cyber’s Managing Partners.
