Westcon Group Closes Acquisition of NOXSSlough, England April 25, 2007 -- Westcon Group, Inc. and Unit 4 Agresso announce today that a UK-based subsidiary of Westcon Group, Inc. has completed its previously announced acquisition of NOXS, the value-added distribution arm of Unit 4 Agresso’s Internet and Security division.
With this acquisition, Westcon Group executes another step in its global strategy of building strength in key areas of networking, convergence, security and mobility in which it has an existing $2 billion business. The acquisition of NOXS positions Westcon to become a leading multinational distributor of network security products and solutions.
Westcon’s customers now have access to NOXS’ expertise, solutions and services, enabling them to bring integrated security solutions to their networking, convergence and mobility customers. Similarly, NOXS’ customers have access to a broader set of opportunities in which their knowledge of solutions such as unified threat management, mobility security, network access control and regulatory compliance have become mandatory requirements.
“Now that the NOXS acquisition is complete, Westcon Group has substantially increased its ability to deliver powerful security solutions to our extended European customer base,” commented Barry Shakespeare, executive vice president of Westcon Group Europe. “In addition to increasing our European vendor line card with companies like Juniper, RSA, Check Point and Blue Coat, we increase our services capability while bringing former NOXS customers a broad range of capabilities in the areas of convergence and mobility.”
NOXS will continue as a dedicated division managed by Harry de Smedt and the existing NOXS management team reporting to Barry Shakespeare, Executive Vice President, Westcon Europe.
