Secure Search Solutions Meet High Enterprise Demands
December 4, 2012
The season that inspires sales is upon us and Claranet is cashing in their acquisition wish list a little early. TechCrunch’s article “Enterprise Cloud Consolidation In Europe: Claranet Buys Star (MessageLabs’ Founders’ Other Startup) For $88M” trumpets how beneficial Claranet’s recent purchase will be for all involved.
Star’s UK client base will now have access to Claranet’s resources, however Claranet benefits by expanding their services and customer base. The combined company efforts will vastly increase estimated ROI:
“This is a great opportunity to bring together the experience and resources of two great companies to deliver a broader service portfolio to benefit our customers. It’s our mission to help our customers make the most of Internet-enabled technology, and the acquisition of Star will enable us to continue to deliver on this promise. The combined company will have revenues of over £120 million, and it will have 700 staff across the UK, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Spain and Portugal.”
Not every provider is looking to be on the acquisition wish list even if the purchaser offers ROI as a stocking stuffer, but we won’t guarantee that Intrafind won’t be caught up in this consolidation shift. However, we do have confidence that they are an established provider that is well versed in scaling secure search solutions that meet the demands of enterprises in the pharmaceutical and financial industries.
