GSS expands in merger with Peapod

Global Secure Systems (GSS) : 24 September, 2007  (Company News)
Global Secure Systems creates one of the UK's largest security consultancies in the UK through Peapod merger.
Having both been leading Security Integrators for over 10 years, GSS and Peapod announce today that they have merged their associated businesses. The new company which will continue under the GSS brand will be one of the largest security integrators and consultancy firms in the UK with over 2,500 combined clients.

GSS will to be run from Worthing, West Sussex and Peapod's new offices in Bracknell (with additional sales offices in London and Dublin).

David Hobson MD of GSS commenting on the merger said "This is a major step for our company. I have always respected Peapod and the way they have done business. Peapod are a perfect fit for GSS. We have similar values, and both parties believe in putting the client first. Our clients require more from security partners than just the supply and support of a single product. They need a trusted partner to understand their business and work with them to provide a solid security architecture for the integrity of their data. They also need assistance ensuring they comply with the plethora of legislation and regulations facing business today."

"Peapod had many suitors, and we considered all of them. It did not take long to recognise that this merger provides our clients, our staff and our investors the best possible future" said Chris Durnan, MD of Peapod. "The new GSS is a very exciting place to be for all stakeholders. There is no doubt we will become one of the most respected information security partners, and trusted advisors in our marketplace."

"Birmingham College of Food, Tourism and Creative Studies is a large establishment with a large complex IT network infrastructure . We have been fortunate enough to work with both GSS and Peapod over the years" said Amin Padhan, Director of Information Services "and I have complete trust in their ability to secure my network and my data. We use both security and back up solutions from them and both are trusted business partners in integrating and securing our IT infrastructure. I have always received excellent support. They understand our business and the challenges we have in a large college environment, particularly where security is of paramount importance in a student environment, to provide solutions that match our budget, requirements and our expectations. I am sure this merger will benefit all the clients of both companies in providing effective business solutions to its valued customers."

"GSS were one of the first Websense partners 10 years ago. They have worked hard to ensure their clients receive excellent support over the years, and it was not that long ago they had more certified Websense engineers in the UK than we did! With the imminent take over of SurfControl by Websense this merger makes fantastic business sense. Peapod were the first SurfControl partner in the UK. They are a well respected company in our industry, and certainly one we would have liked to have on our side! I believe the new GSS is ideally positioned to support and look after Websense and SurfControl clients , through our take over period" Frank Coggrave VP Europe Sales, Websense.
