S3K was created by the merger of 10 leading Italian companies active in physical, logical, integrated, and multidisciplinary security solutions, each with a specific expertise. The aim of such integration was the creation of a national one-stop-shop in the industry, with multidisciplinary competences and a leading position as a platform for future aggregations.

In July 2021, HLD acquired a majority stake in S3K, together with the management of the original companies, which reinvested a significant part of their proceeds.

S3K boasts a solid and well diversified customer base composed by over 500 customers from various industries (incl. TMT, Finance, Industrial, Healthcare, Transportation, Digital Providers, etc.), both public and private, as well as by governmental bodies, and represents a strong platform to build a leading player in the still very fragmented Italian cybersecurity industry, which is expected to grow at double-digit in the next years.

We are working closely with S3K's Management to the finalization of the integration as well as to the realization of the organic growth plan based on newly introduced services and technologies in the cybersecurity space (SOC, AI, etc.). Regarding external growth plans, S3K is continuing to scout new M&A opportunities to enhance and integrate its offering, as well as to consolidate its leadership position in the Italian market.
