In 2010, Damgaard Company, along with DKA II A/S, acquired a minority stake in Secunia. Preben Damgaard simultaneously joined the company's board. In 2013, Damgaard Company and DKA II A/S acquired 100% of the company’s shares from the original Secunia founders and replaced the management team.
Through 36 million Danish Kroner’s further funding from Damgaard Company, the new management developed the Secunia into a strong, profitable, international player in the growing market for IT security, and brought the company to a profitable exit when it was acquired by enterprise software firm Flexera Software in 2015.
