An award-winning cyber security firm in Bury St Edmunds has been acquired by a Cheshire-based company.
Telecoms and ICT provider Chess said the acquisition of Foursys for an undisclosed sum will add more than £11m to its turnover, bringing it to £120m.
The Foursys team, which services customers across the UK, has 20 years' experience in providing cyber security to public sector, small and medium-sized businesses, corporate, and enterprise organisations.
It employs 50 staff and has grown strongly since a management buyout in 2013 by its current directors James Miller and Jez Turner.
Chess ICT, which already provides various IT-related services, said the addition was 'a perfect fit' for its portfolio.
