Stockholm, Sweden – 22nd of May, 2023 – Cyber Security 1 AB (publ) (“The Company”) (“CYBER1”) (Nasdaq First North: CYB1), an international leader in cyber security, is delighted to announce a partnership with 9TH BIT, a leading provider of Information Technology in Integration, Microservices & API, DevOps & DevSecOps, DataOps & NoSQL as well as Observability & AIOps domains.
The partnership agreement will see both organisations collaborating in the referral of customers, as well as joint sale and supply of technologies and services. The companies have combined together successfully on several security related events across the Middle East and Africa, with the “Shifting Left” event series being hugely popular with vendors, partners and customers.
DevSecOps involves the incorporation of security testing throughout the software development process, that includes tools and procedures that encourage cooperation between developers, security experts, and operations teams, all with the goal of creating efficient and secure software. It promotes a cultural shift that emphasizes shared responsibility for security among all involved in software development. DevSecOps seeks to enable development teams to effectively address security concerns in the face of tight timelines and fast software updates and represents a more modern approach to software security compared to previous practices.
Robert Brown, Group President & Executive Director of CYBER1 commented that “I am delighted to establish this new relationship and agreement with 9TH BIT. We believe there are a number of synergistic opportunities in the DevSecOps space and the convergence of security practices we see that are required with our customers. We believe that our joint approach on larger customer opportunities (both new and existing) will equate to greater collective benefits because of this exciting partnership. I am looking forward to collaborating further with Barry De Waal and Gerhard Van Niekerk and the rest of the 9TH BIT team, in developing our mutual strategic engagement for the future.
Commenting on the partnership, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Owner of 9TH BIT, Barry De Waal stated: “It goes without saying that we are very excited to partner with CYBER1. CYBER1 bring years’ of experience and a wonderful track record in delivering cyber solutions to various customers across the globe. Leveraging this experience along with the 9TH BIT capability in the Integration, Automation & Data that have permeated into the DevOps and DevSecOps space, we believe that this partnership with CYBER1 will deliver tremendous value to our customers.
