QuantumWave Capital Advises GMO GlobalSign on its Acquisition of Ubisecure

PARIS, France, September 30, 2014 – QuantumWave Capital, a boutique investment bank specializing in the mobile internet, acted as exclusive buy side financial advisor to GMO GlobalSign, the security division of the Tokyo-based GMO Internet Group (TSE: 9449) and a leading provider of identity services for online transactions, in its acquisition of Helsinki-based Ubisecure Solutions, Inc., a privately-held identity and access management (IAM) software developer.

The acquisition delivers essential technology and talent to propel GlobalSign’s strategic focus on identity services for the rapidly emerging, $14.4 trillion Internet of Everything (IoE) market, where the ability to make secure networked connections among people, processes, data and things, will require that every “thing” have a trusted identity.

Ubisecure is recognized as a product leader in Access Management & Federation by Europe’s leading information security analyst firm KuppingerCole – a market that is expected to reach $7 billion by 2017. Ubisecure’s access control, single sign-on (SSO), federation and delegation services, along with massive scalability, are the product of a 53 man-year R&D investment. The software is used by an impressive number of government agencies, financial institutions and enterprises in Europe, and deployed with the help of over 150 strategic partners, including system integration leaders CapGemini and CGI.
