LAKEWOOD, N.J. (April 16, 2019) – The GLI Group (GLI®) has acquired SeNet International Corporation (“SeNet”), bringing expanded cybersecurity and other IT capabilities to clients of the GLI Group, Bulletproof a GLI Company, and SeNet. The companies serve a wide range of clients in the casino gaming space and across the business spectrum.
Founded in 1998, SeNet is an information security services company serving government and commercial clients, including the gaming industry, throughout the United States.
As part of the acquisition, the GLI Group will operate SeNet in conjunction with Bulletproof Solutions, ULC (“Bulletproof”), an information security company headquartered in Fredericton, Canada and wholly owned by the GLI Group. SeNet will operate as the U.S. information-security platform for Bulletproof, which will benefit existing SeNet clients by offering the broader information security services of Bulletproof, and Bulletproof’s current U.S. client base by delivering services through local information security professionals.
As the U.S. platform for Bulletproof, SeNet will leverage the combined capabilities of both companies to deliver enhanced information security services to clients. The investment further demonstrates the GLI Group’s commitment to providing world-class information security services to clients.
The GLI Group announced that, as part of the acquisition, all SeNet employees will continue to operate as a part of SeNet. That includes SeNet co-founder and CEO Ilan Katz and Chief Technology Officer (CTO) Gus Fritschie in leadership roles, and SeNet co-founder and President Toly Kozushin as a senior consultant.
The GLI Group’s James Maida, president and CEO of Gaming Laboratories International (GLI), said, “We are very pleased to continue our relationship with the entire SeNet team and look forward to them assisting us in providing world-class security services both inside and outside the gaming industries in the United States and elsewhere around the world.”
“SeNet was founded with a core objective to provide best-in-class information security services and continues to demonstrate consistent growth. What influenced me the most about the GLI Group is their unwavering focus on clients and strong track record of both growing and integrating new companies,” stated Toly Kozushin.
SeNet’s Ilan Katz added, “We are very excited to add to the GLI Group’s information security capabilities and help them grow in the U.S. While this acquisition closes a very successful chapter for the founders, it also introduces significantly greater growth prospects for our employees and clients.”
“Since joining SeNet approximately 15 years ago, I have personally observed the world-class capabilities of the GLI Group, and I am looking forward to joining the GLI Group team. Together with Bulletproof, we will have the combined capabilities to solve all security challenges for our clients,” remarked SeNet’s Gus Fritschie.
