PowerIT, a training and services specialist to the networking and telecommunications markets, has bought the IT security consultancy and services business of Chimaera Network Security for an undisclosed sum. Simon Andrews, chief executive of PowerIT, claims the move enables it to provide a much wider product offering. "We've been very training orientated," he explains,' but this will give us much greater scope, particularly in the security field. Andrews adds that the decision to diversify was not a reaction to a downturn in the market: "All our key partners have products that impact on the security sector, so an extension of our skills in this area makes obvious sense."
