In SecureLink, we have found a formidable and customer-oriented cybersecurity solutions provider, a platform from which we seek to drive a pan-European expansion strategy.

"We are impressed by SecureLink's entrepreneurial management team and we look forward to partnering with them as we seek to implement an accelerated growth strategy, both organically and through add-on acquisitions."

Marco Barkmeijer, CEO, SecureLink, added: "Ever since our formation, SecureLink has been focused on delivering exceptional client service in the area of cybersecurity, a focus that has enabled us to become a leading cybersecurity infrastructure and managed services provider in our home markets.

"Through continued organic growth as well as acquisitions we now stand ready to take SecureLink to the next level. In Investcorp, we believe we have found the right partner for the next part of our journey, and look forward to benefiting from their industry insights, global network and growth enabling capital base to help us become the leading pan-European player."
