This allows us to take our security capabilities to an even higher level in a strong safe and cost-effective manner. A secure digital environment for our customers and employees is of great importance in an ever-changing security threat landscape.”

The long-standing collaboration between Northwave and Jumbo allows both parties to get familiar with one another, their goals and ways of operating, optimising their productivity and improving their potential for success. 

Steven Dondorp, CEO of Northwave: “We are proud to provide ‘A Safe Digital Journey’ to the customers and employees of such a widely spread organisation as Jumbo and enhance their security posture. I am confident that we will provide a meaningful contribution to their goals, and I am looking forward to our collaboration.”
