Infinigate Group, a pan-European value-added distributor (VAD)
of cybersecurity solutions, has become the first VAD to combine cybersecurity and cloud services through the strategic acquisition of independent cloud services provider Vuzion.
Part of Infinigate’s ambitious expansion strategy, the acquisition of Vuzion, follows that of Nuvias Group’s Cyber Security and Secure Networking business, announced in July.
Klaus Schlichtherle, CEO of Infinigate Group, said: “Our acquisition of Vuzion is a strategic move that we’ve taken because cybersecurity and cloud are a natural fit. It enables us to ensure a more comprehensive security posture for end customers, especially in the SMB space. Infinigate will be the only VAD where resellers will find the expertise to transition customers to comprehensive secure cloud solutions.
“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 we will be investing in the core Vuzion business in the UK and will develop a joint approach across EMEA to secure the cloud and leverage Vuzion expertise and experience.”
Founded in 2016, Vuzion delivers best-of-breed cloud solutions and was the first Microsoft UK partner to provide a full spectrum of offerings across the cloud platform partner ecosystem. It serves more than 600 resellers and 1 million cloud users and has recorded organic year-on-year growth of more than 30% in each of the last three years.
Vuzion Managing Director Michael Frisby, a 13-year Microsoft veteran, will be joining Infinigate as SVP Cloud Services and will drive Vuzion growth within Infinigate across EMEA.
