secunet is expanding its core expertise in the Homeland Security division and so is acquiring a business unit from HJP Consulting, based in Borchen, North Rhine-Westphalia. With this partial transfer of operations, secunet will be taking on experts in electronic identity documents (eID), whilst also bringing on board the test tool GlobalTester, used for examining eIDs, and continuing to develop it.
secunet is targeting and strengthening its Homeland Security division with specialists in electronic identity documents. Employees from a section of HJP Consulting will provide extensive expertise in the safeguarding and review of eIDs and, with their knowledge, represent a fantastic addition to the activities of the Homeland Security division.
secunet will be adding GlobalTester to its range of test software. This product is used for comprehensively reviewing the compliance of chip cards, and in particular of eIDs, as well as corresponding readers. This means that two globally recognised test suites for eIDs will be bundled at secunet in the form of the secunet Golden Reader Tool and GlobalTester.
With the partial transfer of operations (the acquisition of part of a company), secunet will also obtain new premises in Borchen, North Rhine-Westphalia. This is a sign of secunet’s commitment to the strong IT region around Paderborn, whilst also creating an opportunity for further growth.
HJP Consulting will continue to concentrate on its consultancy business in eIDs, biometrics and PKI/PKD solutions. It intends to focus the further expansion of its government consultancy services on planning, putting out to tender and approving complex IT systems to clients in the Middle East in particular.
