8.4.2022: Airbus Defence and Space acquires DSI Datensicherheit GmbH
Today we had the closing of the M&A Process for the acquisition of 100% shares of our daughter company DSI Datensicherheit (DSI-DS) by Airbus Defence and Space (ADS). Our daughter company DSI-DS is a specialist for crypto and tempest solutions in aerospace applications. This acquisition by one of our main customers provides in our view a perfect match in order to support the rapid growth of DSI-DS in a challenging market. Our other daughter company DSI Aerospace Technology is not affected by this acquisition and remains a SME as a full daughter of the DSI Informationstechnik GmbH.
DSI Datensicherheit GmbH will be rebranded by the new owner to avoid confusion with the other companies of the DSI Group.
