On its way to become Europe’s largest cloud security provider: German cloud security expert Hornetsecurity announces the acquisition of Spanish email security company Spamina. The market leader in the German-speaking area is thus significantly expanding its market position. This strategic decision not only qualifies Hornetsecurity as the market leader in Spain, but also opens up access to the South American IT security market. As a part of the Hornetsecurity Group, nearly 200 specialists will guarantee secure email communication for more than 40,000 companies worldwide.
“The acquisition of Spamina strengthens our strategic position in the international market,” says Daniel Blank, CEO of Hornetsecurity. The acquisition of the Spanish company, Hornetsecurity gains further international locations, in addition to Madrid and Barcelona, especially in Central and South America. Following the expansion of its business in the USA and Australia, the opening up of the Benelux region through the takeover of Avira’s spam filter division and the recently concluded partnership with Swisscom, Hornetsecurity is thus consistently continuing its international expansion. “The added value for our employees, customers and business partners is obvious. In the future, all stakeholders will benefit from efficient technology, excellent support and bundled development resources,” Blank adds. A further purpose of the takeover is to strengthen activities in the South American market. Many of the local companies in South America are looking for cloud security services that meet their linguistic and technical needs.
“This is where we start: With our bundled know-how and innovative services, we offer high-quality cloud security solutions including cultural and communicative competences”, says Daniel Hofmann, CEO of Hornetsecurity. Blank once again emphasizes the importance of this strategic milestone for the company’s future growth: “Spain is one of the fastest-growing economic powers in Europe and one of South America’s strongest trading partners. In addition, the annual growth in gross domestic product clearly shows that countries such as Argentina, Peru and Colombia are among the emerging service markets. This is where we see a significant, strong market potential.” The international fast-growing cloud security expert expects an even faster market expansion due to the focus on common target markets and worldwide distribution of its product portfolio. Founded in Madrid in 2005, Spamina guarantees the security of its customers in the three main areas of “Email Firewall”, “Threat Prevention” and “Secure Collaboration”. Numerous well-known companies such as ARAG SE, Europcar and Azimut Benetti Group rely on these security solutions in their daily business. “The company and our products complement each other in every aspect and we are sure that with our innovative services and associated, comprehensive know-how, the digital future of our customers will be even more secure”, says Hornetsecurity’s CEO Oliver Dehning.
