Valencia, October 4, 2022 – The company S2 Grupo announced today that it plans to close this year with a turnover of around 30 million euros. This information was offered at the inauguration of its new cybersecurity facilities in Madrid, which was attended by the Councilor for Local Administration and Digitalization, Carlos Izquierdo Torres, and the managing-partners of S2 Grupo Miguel A. Juan and José Rosell, among other personalities.
“The growth we have experienced in recent years is mainly due to the fact that since the pandemic there has been a very high increase in cyber-attacks both in quantity and impact, they are becoming increasingly sophisticated and complex. This has forced companies and Public Administrations to do their homework in this area and demand to work with cybersecurity specialists, such as the people who are part of the S2 Grupo team, because they are aware of the risks we face“, said José Rosell, managing partner of S2 Grupo.
Importance of digital sovereignty for Spain’s cybersecurity.
In this context, one of the points where attention has been focused, as far as our country’s cybersecurity is concerned, is on the importance of pursuing the goal of digital sovereignty.
“To continue advancing a cybersecure world and minimize the risks of cyber espionage, among others, we need to stop being technologically dependent on other countries such as the US, China or Israel. We need to have digital sovereignty. Therefore, at S2 Grupo we will continue to invest in R&D+i and in the development of our own technology, because this is the only way to create solutions that will allow Europe to be technologically independent in the field of cybersecurity,” said Miguel A. Juan, managing partner of S2 Grupo.
In addition to its center in Madrid, S2Grupo has facilities in Valencia, Seville, Barcelona, San Sebastian, Brussels, Bogotá, Brindisi, Santiago Chile, Mexico, Rotterdam and Lisbon.
Since its inception in 2004, S2 Grupo has become a benchmark company in the security environment on an international scale and has experienced continuous growth. The company closed 2021 with a turnover of around 25 million euros, which represented a growth of more than 30% over the previous year. It is also committed to the creation of quality employment and currently has a workforce of more than 580 people.
Its clients include most of the leading companies in the distribution, energy, banking and insurance, healthcare, industry and Public Administration sectors.
S2 Grupo, a world reference in cybersecurity
S2 Grupo has achieved that the technology of a Spanish company is presented to the world as the cornerstone of the Spanish security model promoted and defended by the National Cryptologic Center under the National Intelligence Center. In this sense, the technology developed by S2 Grupo is currently deployed in private companies all over the world, in more than 200 agencies of the General State Administration, in different Autonomous Communities and is also starting to be deployed in local entities.
