he GLI Group announced Tuesday the acquisition of SeNet International Corporation, bringing expanded cybersecurity and other IT capabilities to clients of the GLI Group, Bulletproof, and SeNet. The companies serve a wide range of clients in the casino gaming space and across the business spectrum.
Founded in 1998, SeNet is an information security services company serving government and commercial clients, including the gaming industry, throughout the United States.
As part of the acquisition, the GLI Group will operate SeNet in conjunction with Bulletproof Solutions, an information security company headquartered in Fredericton, Canada and wholly owned by the GLI Group. SeNet will operate as the U.S. information-security platform for Bulletproof, which will benefit existing SeNet clients by offering the broader information security services of Bulletproof, and Bulletproof’s current U.S. client base by delivering services through local information security professionals.
"We are very pleased to continue our relationship with the entire SeNet team and look forward to them assisting us in providing world-class security services both inside and outside the gaming industries in the United States and elsewhere around the world," said James Maida, president and CEO of Gaming Laboratories International (GLI).
As the U.S. platform for Bulletproof, SeNet will leverage the combined capabilities of both companies to deliver enhanced information security services to clients.
The GLI Group also announced that, as part of the acquisition, all SeNet employees will continue to operate as a part of SeNet. That includes SeNet co-founder and CEO Ilan Katz and Chief Technology Officer (CTO) Gus Fritschie in leadership roles, and SeNet co-founder and President Toly Kozushin as a senior consultant.
"SeNet was founded with a core objective to provide best-in-class information security services and continues to demonstrate consistent growth. What influenced me the most about the GLI Group is their unwavering focus on clients and strong track record of both growing and integrating new companies," stated Toly Kozushin.
"We are very excited to add to the GLI Group’s information security capabilities and help them grow in the U.S. While this acquisition closes a very successful chapter for the founders, it also introduces significantly greater growth prospects for our employees and clients." SeNet’s Ilan Katz added.
