Kerv boosts networking play with Gyrocom acquisition

Surrey-based Gyrocom has been acquired by Kerv and will operate as Kerv's networking and security division. Most notably the deal adds skills in SD-WAN and Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) and brings a strong presence in the retail sector. 

Gyrocom was founded in 2006 by MD Graham Brown and Technical Director Ryan Coombes who worked together previously at Nortel Networks. 

The company's tech relationships include VMWare Velocloud, Dell, Cisco, Palo Alto, Fortinet, Versa and Z-Scaler.

Kerv is now a £50m revenue company with 400-plus employees and 750 public and private sector mid-market customers. 

Executive Chairman Alastair Mills (pictured) said: “Gyrocom brings important new and strategic skills to Kerv across SD-WAN and SASE in particular. 

"Its growth trajectory and ability to win major network transformation contracts are testament to its capabilities and product-market fit."

Brown added: “When Kerv approached us we weren’t looking to sell, but in getting to know the team over the course of this year we saw the potential for an excellent fit, strategically and culturally.” 

Kerv was created out of the July 2020 LDC-backed £30m merger of DoubleEdge Professional Services, Foehn and Metaphor IT.
