Enea has signed an agreement to acquire AdaptiveMobile Security Ltd, a leading provider of security for mobile networks. The enterprise value of AdaptiveMobile Security amounts to approximately EUR 45 million on a cash and debt free basis. Enea estimates that AdaptiveMobile Security will have sales of approximately EUR 17 million for the full year 2021, with an EBIT margin in 2022 that will be close to Enea's operating margin target.

AdaptiveMobile Security delivers software and services for messaging and signaling security in mobile core networks. The company’s products protect mobile networks, their subscribers, and their data from all types of network-borne attacks. Messaging security prevents unwanted traffic which can be linked to security threats, service abuse, or revenue loss. The purpose of signaling security is to prevent cyberattacks exploiting signaling traffic. The offering is a combination of carrier-grade signaling firewalls, reporting, and advanced monitoring.
AdaptiveMobile Security’s products and services have been deployed by more than 80 mobile operators globally. The two main customer segments are mobile operators and providers of communication platforms. More than half of its revenue is recurring, and the solutions are sold as software licenses, managed services, or cloud services.
“As the global leader in mobile network security, AdaptiveMobile Security expands our market presence and broadens our offering to operators, creating interesting opportunities in areas such as 5G security,” says Jan Häglund, President and CEO of Enea.
