Liquid Intelligent Technologies, a subsidiary of Cassava Technologies, a pan-African technology group, has today announced the acquisition of an Egyptian Cysiv MEA, formerly SecureMisr which provides enterprise cloud and cyber security services to some of Egypt’s leading companies, particularly in the financial services sector to extend its operations into the MENA region.
The London-based tech company which launched its operation in Nigeria in late November 2022 is a pan-African technology group present in more than 20 countries, mainly in sub-Saharan Africa. Liquid has firmly established itself as the leading provider of pan-African digital infrastructure with an extensive fiber broadband network covering over 100,000 km. It is also leveraging its digital network to provide Cloud and Cyber Security solutions through strategic partnerships with leading global players. Liquid Intelligent Technologies is a comprehensive technology solutions group that provides customized digital solutions to public and private sector enterprises and SMEs across the continent.
This latest acquisition comes at the heels of the company’s last acquisition of Telrad, an Israeli-based technology company in 2022. The company said that it will rebrand Cysiv MEA to ‘Liquid C2’ to align it with its global cloud and cybersecurity identity.
