Dimension Data Acquires Managed Security Services Provider

Dimension Data has acquired Earthwave Corporation Pty Limited, a privately-owned Australian managed security services provider. Dimension Data says the acquisition extends and strengthens its managed security services, and supports its growth in the areas of cloud services, IT outsourcing and enterprise mobility.

“While organizations increasingly recognize outsourcing, cloud services and enterprise mobility as enablers for innovation and transformation, security concerns are one of the major inhibitors to the adoption of these services. At the same time, cyber threats from individuals through to state-sponsored groups continue to rise,” said Rodd Cunico, CEO for Dimension, Data Australia.

A privately owned Australian company founded in 2000, with two Sydney-based security operations centers, Earthwave offers on-premise and cloud-based services, including managed security services; in-the-cloud security services; secure internet gateway; cloud security; and professional security services.

Headquartered in Johannesburg, Dimension Data is an IT services and solution provider specializing in networking and communications. Dimension Data’s security expertise covers managed services, consulting and professional services. With the Earthwave acquisition, Dimension Data now has a team of 160 in its Australian Security Solutions business and over 500 globally.
