Anthony Young, CEO of Bridewell, commented: “Arculus’ reputation and growth in cyber security across the public sector is truly remarkable. The decision to bring Bridewell and Arculus together felt absolutely right from a strategic standpoint. It’s a perfect fit for expanding our pool of expertise, skills, and accreditations, not to mention boosting our revenue in the public sector space.”

Austin France, Founder and Principal Consultant at Arculus, said: “On behalf of the Arculus team we are delighted to be joining forces with Bridewell and excited about the opportunities that this relationship will bring. Arculus has focused on ensuring the best possible experience for our customers and team and this approach aligns perfectly with our new colleagues at Bridewell.”

Ravi Monteiro, Partner, GCP commented: “The acquisition of Arculus represents an opportunity to combine two high-quality, culturally aligned, businesses that have both delivered exceptional growth.  Bridewell holds an enviable position across Critical National Infrastructure which will only be enhanced by Arculus’ strength in the public sector.  We are delighted to welcome Arculus to the Bridewell team and are very excited for this next chapter.”
