Describing this latest business combination Trilogy Group Managing Director Edel Creely said:

“The acquisition of Zinopy is a transformational deal for Trilogy, positioning us as a fast growing group at the forefront of managed IT and security services in Ireland. We are delighted to join forces with Zinopy, which is one of the most highly regarded specialist IT security brands in the country."

“Trilogy is already Ireland’s leading provider of remote IT managed services and together the group is well placed to take advantage of the significant growth opportunities in managed IT services domestically and in the much larger UK market, where we now have new opportunities to build on our existing footprint.

“Digital transformation, cyber-attacks and GDPR requirements have created greater awareness among boards of directors to ensure their businesses are adequately prepared and protected and we see strong growth opportunities in these areas for the enlarged group going forward.”

Added, Zinopy CEO John Ryan:

“Over recent years, Zinopy has established itself as one of Ireland’s leading IT specialist and cyber security providers experiencing strong growth as the market recognizes the need for secure IT solutions in an ever more complex world.

“We are extremely proud of the journey we have undertaken since 2010 and believed the time was right to partner with Trilogy to take the company forward to the next step. We look forward to a new chapter that is unfolding with Trilogy, and where our combined capabilities are helping us build a new force in managed IT services in Ireland and the UK.”
