Advent One acquires Layer 8 Networks | #cybersecurity | #cyberattack

Consultancy firm Advent One has acquired Layer 8 Networks, a provider of unified communications, networking, and network security services.

The two companies have a history of working together.

Advent One CEO Jon Ossip, said the Layer 8 Networks acquisition enhances Advent One’s ability to fulfil customers’ technology needs.

“Our vision is to be a leader of hybrid cloud provisioning which includes having expertise across infrastructure, automation, cloud architecture and network security,” he said.

“Network architecture and a resilient network security infrastructure is the backbone of high-performing hybrid cloud environments. As technology changes, and the cybersecurity threat surface expands, organisations will become increasingly reliant on their hybrid cloud environments to enable them to scale in a safe and secure way. As the backbone, the network and its security then become a critical area of importance and innovation.”

Layer 8 Networks team will benefit from access to Advent One’s customers, as well as sales and marketing support.

“We started Layer 8 Networks with a focus on what we’re good at – network security. Joining Advent One gives us better coverage across cloud, infrastructure, and hybrid cloud services without having to pivot our commercial direction,” said Layer 8 Networks director and co-founder Ben Brockliss.

“Over the years we have developed several joint customers with Advent One, and we have complemented each other well. Our cultural values align, and we both have a strong ethos of delivering quality work in good time. Our potential together is very exciting.”

Ossip added “The esteem in which the Layer 8 Networks team are held, and how highly regarded they are by the quality of their delivery and networking expertise, is very respected by us here at Advent One.

“Our focus on team culture, great people and delivering robust solutions to solve customer problems means we have a strong cultural alignment with the Layer 8 Networks team, and we’re excited to deliver great quality work that we can hang our reputation on.”
