Spirit on acquiring security specialist Intalock

Spirit says Intalock is one of Australia’s best managed cyber security services firms that offers a complete range of technical services, advisory services and software licensing sevices along with an industry leading Security Operations Centre that provides 24/7 technical and monitoring support.

After conducting an exhaustive market review of assets in the cybersecurity sector, Brisbane’s Intalock was chosen as the foundation asset for Spirit Technology Solutions to enter the Corporate and Government sector.

Intalock’s talent, assets and services will be used in 2 ways – firstly, as an entry into a new market. Secondly, its cyber security product range will be sold into the existing client portfolio of Spirit. This cyber security product and service range completes the Spirit’s range of Telco and IT bundled products.
