AddSecure, a leading European provider of secure IoT connectivity solutions with a focus on secure critical communications and data, today announced the rebranding of Dualtech IT AB, a leading supplier of secure IP-based alarm communications terminals and innovative services.
Following AddSecure’s acquisition of Dualtech in September 2020, today the companies officially align under one brand. Consolidating its Smart Alarms solutions, the rebranding will further strengthen the company’s offering to the market.
“By gathering all knowledge under the same brand, we will be able to strengthen our Smart Alarms’ portfolio, expertise, and market coverage in Europe. The combined offering will benefit customers across Europe who will be provided with future-proof, secure, and reliable end-to-end IoT connectivity solutions,” said Peter Johansson, President Smart Alarms, AddSecure.
This holds particularly true when it comes to the new alarm transmission EU standard 50136-3 required by 2021. In the past, to receive a certificate only the transmitter needed to be tested, not the receiving equipment, whereas the new standard stipulates that the alarm system must be tested all the way, end-to-end.
The joint offering is also important in view of the forthcoming technological shift, i.e. the sunsetting of the copper, 2G and 3G networks that is taking place throughout Europe. Customers and installers can now onboard a new generation of wireless and IP-based alarm terminals that support both alarm transmission services as well enable secure IoT communications for other building management systems and video surveillance systems. All with the need for secure connectivity and remote services to operate in a secure manner.
“In addition, by combining expertise and consolidated IT and cybersecurity practice, we will be able to create new, innovative solutions that can meet the increased digitalization and the thereby increasing security threats customers are facing,” Johansson continued.
Nordic customers, partners and other interested parties have the opportunity to meet the joint Smart Alarms team at stand 03:71 at the Sectech Security forum that takes place in Stockholm October 27-28, 2021.
