German electronics group acquires enterprise security technology firm Sirrix for a reported €100 million

German electronics giant Rohde & Schwarz, an independent, family-owned manufacturer of test and measurement equipment for mobile radios and radiocommunications, today announced that it has acquired Saarbrücken-based IT security company Sirrix.

The price of the acquisition was not disclosed, but amounts to €100 million according to Gründerszene.

Sirrix was created in 2005 as a spin-off of the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) at the University of Saarland in Saarbrücken.

Its new owner, Rohde & Schwarz, has been around a bit longer than that. It was established more than 80 years ago and had 1.75 billion euros in turnover in its last fiscal year.
