San Diego, July 1, 2018
Secure Smart Office (SSO); a leading provider of security-centric IT services and solutions, today announced they have completed the acquisition of GSWS; a well-respected, stalwart, IT service and cyber security provider that has been strongly supporting clients in the San Diego region for 25 years.
All GSWS services, personnel and resources are part of the acquisition; bringing additional services, expertise and manpower to SSO. GSWS Senior leadership will join SSO’s senior leadership team and will remain on-board as part of the long-term organizational strategy. All business, individuals and services will unify and operate under the SSO brand/service identity.
During the acquisition process GSWS personnel will integrate onto the SSO team, and changes will be fully and carefully managed. We don’t anticipate any immediate changes for all of our clients. The transition will take place over the next several months to ensure a smooth process with minimal impact for everyone involved. We will begin reaching out to each client individually, to discuss and answer any questions you may have. During the transition period, GSWS President Dave Tuckman will retain his old email address and will continue to be directly available at dave@GSWS.com or by phone at 619-905-4468. Reach out any time, and he looks forward to speaking with each of you. As we move through the transition period and beyond, Dave can be reached at his new email address of firstname.lastname@example.org which will serve as his permanent contact point.
HIGHLIGHTS OF THE ACQUISITION:
- Two top local technology providers combine for strengthened and expanded services and capabilities portfolio.
- Decades of knowledge, experience, reputations and relationships in the Information Security and Information Technology sector combine to provide a full suite of Cybersecurity, Compliance, Managed IT, Hosting and Web Development services.

ABOUT SECURE, SMART OFFICE

Based on the strong principles of solid cyber security, and stable, modern IT solutions, everything SSO does and every client offering is based on security integrated from the ground up.
