A North East security software company specialising in tailored threat intelligence data has been acquired by a rapidly growing, global risk services platform.

Mincoffs Solicitors’ corporate team advised Intelligence Fusion Limited, which maps potential threats around the world for use across a huge range of sectors, on its acquisition to transatlantic firm Sigma7.

Combining data mining with a human network and expert analysts, the Durham-based intelligence and technology firm provides military grade intelligence to the private sector, conveying real-time information on potential security risks such as combat incidents, terrorist activities, protests and natural hazards.

The acquisition by the global risk experts will allow Intelligence Fusion to boost its talent and technologies, enhance its offering to both existing and potential clients and access a larger pool of resources and services.

Intelligence Fusion founder, Michael McCabe is delighted to join the Sigma7 portfolio.

“The fact that Intelligence Fusion is now part of a network of industry-leading security technologies is really exciting, both for our existing business and when looking at our potential for the future,” he said

“The acquisition puts us in a position to grow our team and capabilities in the North East, along with expanding our operations into the United States and beyond.

“It was fantastic to work with Mincoffs on this deal and their team ensured a smooth and efficient process every step of the way. We were kept informed at every stage and I wouldn’t hesitate to work with them again in the future.”

John Nicholson, Partner in Mincoffs’ corporate team, believes the acquisition is an excellent move for the business.

“Michael McCabe’s background as a British Army intelligence operator has put him in a unique position to bring an incredibly refined security platform to a new market, so it is little surprise to see it attract the attention of such a prominent firm,” said John.

“We have worked with the Intelligence Fusion team from the company’s early stages and this creates a brilliant opportunity to scale the business, both in the UK and overseas, and really capitalise on the resources now available to them.

“It was a pleasure to act on behalf of the team and we look forward to seeing the company reach new heights as part of the Sigma7 portfolio.”

Mincoffs Solicitors has provided expert legal services and advice across the North East and beyond for more than 70 years.

Along with corporate, the firm’s service areas include commercial, real estate, dispute resolution, employment, licensing and gaming, residential conveyancing, family and wills, probate and trusts.
