Infinigate Group has added Microsoft expertise to its pan-European cybersecurity footprint with the acquisition of cloud distributor Vuzion, which serves over 600 resellers and one million cloud users.
Vuzion emerged from Fareham-based Cobweb Solutions in 2016, having achieved organic year-on-year growth of more than 30% each year for the last three years.
"Joining forces allows us to provide more expertise and services, which help our mutual partners accelerate their growth and secure their customers’ journey to the cloud,” said Michael Frisby, MD of Vuzion.
“This acquisition generates new employment opportunities as we continue to grow our teams, in the UK, Ireland and in Europe.”
According to Klaus Schlichtherle, CEO of Infinigate Group, the deal enables Infinigate to channel Vuzion’s experience in helping both vendors and partners adapt to a cybersecurity subscription-model.
He said: “This allows us to ensure a more comprehensive security posture for the end customers especially in the SMB space.
“The acquisition will accelerate digital transformation both for Infinigate and for those we serve and combined with our key recruitment and investments, it enables us to re-invent VAD for a digital world.”
In the coming quarter Infinitgate will invest in Vuzion’s core business in the UK and will develop a joint approach across EMEA.
The buy follows Infinigate’s acquisition of Nuvias earlier this year which created a European VAD powerhouse.
