Celebrating 20 Years 2000: We Survive Y2K And Form An International JV

Posted by Optimation Editor on 20 September 2012

1 January 2000 came and went and the world didn’t collapse in a smoking pile of motherboards. School projects would never be the same as we welcomed Wikipedia into our lives and our printed encyclopedias slowly got relegated to use as doorstops. And it wasn’t all work as Sony brought out its PS2 gaming console.

For Optimation, the start of the new millennium marked a new business adventure as we partnered with Logical to create Secure24, an innovative joint venture to deliver one of the world’s first managed security offerings. Logical was later purchased by IBM, which continues to offer IBM Secure24 to this day.
