Lexsi, backed by Argos Soditic, was acquired by Orange through its entity Orange Business Services. DC Advisory US co-advised Lexsi alongside European investment bank Bryan Garnier & Co.which acted as lead investment banker on this transaction.
Lexsi is a cyber security leader providing to more than 400 active clients in Europe its services in audit, consulting, SOC and threat intelligence. Lexsi employs more than 170 experts and manages the largest independent Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT) in Europe.
Argos Soditic invested in Lexsi in September 2008 alongside its management. Throughout the years, the group has more than doubled its size (purely via organic growth), and developed innovating intelligence threat technologies.
Our support of Lexsi is another successful example of our far reaching reinforcement strategy in companies in which we invest. We are very happy with the successful innovative policies which were implemented, and to see that these strengths will be leveraged further with the backing of Orange’s powerful organisation.
The integration of Lexsi in the Orange Cyberdefense is excellent news for both entities, for our employees and for our customers. We are thus one of the European leaders in cyber security, with outstanding capacity to deliver both in France and abroad, and across all areas: infrastructure protection, advice, audit, SOC, incident response, without of course forgetting the innovative services such as threat intelligence.
