Irish-owned security systems firm CWSI has signed a deal worth €2 million a year with a UK mobile network. CWSI manages security and other services for mobile devices used by companies in the Republic and the UK and includes Ryanair, CityJet, Paddy Power Betfair and the British Asset Resolution agency among its clients.

The company said it has signed a deal with one of the UK’s four national mobile network, O2, Three, EE and Vodafone, to provide it with security and data protection. “The deal will be worth over €2 million in revenue to CWSI in the first 12 months of the new contract,” the Irish company said in a statement confirming news of the agreement.

The company was set up by Ronan Murphy in 2011. He has run a number of businesses since selling retailer, Cellular World, to Digifone in 1998. CWSI has invested €1 million in expanding services to the UK over the past two years. It employs 30 people. The company is gearing up for significant growth in the run-up to the introduction of the EU’s new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) in 2018.

“GDPR will impose very significant new obligations on employers in terms of managing security and data on the mobile devices used by their employees, whether they are company devices or personal devices used for company work,” he said.

“Whether you employ a handful of people or thousands of people, you will be expected to be compliant with onerous new rules and it will force new behaviours and obligations on every company.”
