Utimaco acquires Celltick to expand its solutions offering into Public Warning Systems

Celltick is a global leader of Public Warning Systems and the world’s largest cell broadcast-based products provider, in terms of deployments and audience reach.

Aachen, Germany and Tel Aviv, Israel, April 20, 2022 – Utimaco, a leading global provider of Cybersecurity and Compliance solutions, announced that it has signed a Share Purchase Agreement with Celltick, a global leader of Public Warning Systems (PWS), Mass Notification Systems (MNS), and the world’s largest CBC (Cell Broadcast Center) provider.

Recent natural disasters, health crises and military conflicts have put a spotlight on the need for efficient PWS, which allow public authorities to quickly alert the population and let them know of an ongoing crisis or imminent threat. Spearheaded by the United States, many countries have introduced legislation over the past decade, requiring the implementation of digital PWS. For example, the European Electronic Communications Code (EECC) makes it mandatory for all Member States of the European Union (EU) to implement modern public warning systems: by June of this year, public authorities in all Member States must be able to send alerts to people’s phones in a determined area.

In Ukraine, Celltick is currently working together free of charge with the State Emergency Service and the 3 mobile network operators, Kyivstar, Vodafone and Lifecell, to deploy a national cell broadcast-based PWS to help protect the civilian population in the war in Ukraine.

Celltick is one of the leading PWS solution providers. Its MAGEN® (Mass Alert Geo Emergency Notification) System is the leading cell broadcast solution for PWS and already deployed in multiple countries around the globe and its MAGEN® CBC has been adopted by more than 70 mobile network operators worldwide. The combination of Celltick’s expertise and leading technology with Utimaco’s strong international network in the telecommunications, governmental and enterprise sectors, based on long-standing trusted business relationships, creates a market leader with compelling offerings for governments and customers in telecommunications and enterprise markets.

“We are very impressed with Celltick’s technology and its highly skilled team. Both are a perfect fit for Utimaco and a powerful addition to our team and portfolio. Over the past few years, we have made strategic investments into reinforcing our Cyber Security solutions offering, and I am very pleased that we can now present such a valuable new portfolio element to our telecommunication and enterprise customers” said Stefan Auerbach, CEO of Utimaco.

“We are proud and honored to be part of Utimaco”, said Ronen Daniel, co-founder and CEO of Celltick. “We have been focusing since inception in developing and marketing top notch PWS and MNS products for governments, mobile network operators and enterprises. The chemistry with Utimaco’s team was very clear at first sight, and we are looking forward to joining forces and further accelerate Utimaco’s growth”.
 
“Digital public warning systems will be the future of mass emergency notifications. This technology will help to protect and to save citizens’ lives. Thus, we are very proud that Celltick with its best-in class PWS solutions is now part of Utimaco, contributing to our mission to create trust in the digital society.” says Fabian Franzen, Manager Corporate Strategy and M&A at Utimaco.
