SCRT and Telsys join forces with Orange Cyberdefense !

On Tuesday November 8th 2022, SCRT and Telsys have joined Orange Cyberdefense, the cybersecurity subsidiary of the Orange Group.

SCRT, which has just celebrated its 20th anniversary, enjoys a leadership position in the French-speaking swiss cybersecurity market. Telsys, founded in 1989, is a key player in the fields of datacenter, network and cloud infrastructure.

The two sister companies – jointly based in Morges since 2020, with offices in Geneva and Bern – have grown steadily in recent years and in 2022 passed the symbolic threshold of 100 employees.

Based on their well-established service offering and supported by the expertise and resources of the Orange Group, SCRT and Telsys are now capable of rapidly expanding their service portfolio to offer, for example, a wider range of 24/7 SOC services to their customers or an extended range of managed services in the Swiss-German area.

Already enjoying strong positions in French-speaking Switzerland, SCRT and Telsys will thus be able to accelerate their expansion plans in order to become a major national player and, eventually, the number one in Switzerland.

SCRT and Telsys will retain not only their existing management teams but also the autonomy to continue to provide a local service to their clients and to develop their activities on the swiss territory.

For Orange Cyberdefense, this acquisition is part of its European development strategy. With this new presence in Switzerland, Orange Cyberdefense expands its footprint to a total of nine countries (France, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, the United Kingdom and now Switzerland), and more than 2 700 employees.

This alliance also strengthens the expertise of the Orange Group in the cybersecurity field as well as its ethical hacking capabilities, with now more than 200 professionals dedicated to this activity alone.
