Bulletproof Announcement: 16 September 2015
Bulletproof (ASX:BPF) is pleased to announce it has agreed to acquire Infoplex Pty Ltd, a leading Managed Private Cloud company that utilises third party data centres in Sydney and Melbourne. Infoplex, part of the Nextgen Group, manages and hosts blue chip customers’ private cloud requirements for core enterprise applications.
Infoplex’s top clients include the Australian operations of a global financial institution that leverages Infoplex’s Sydney & Melbourne data centre footprint to host its mission critical applications in a high performance, fully redundant managed private cloud.
Speaking about the acquisition, Bulletproof CEO, Anthony Woodward, said:
“As Bulletproof engages clients in their journey to cloud, we increasingly identify applications that customers wish to move to private cloud for a variety of reasons. This acquisition gives us additional, market leading, private cloud capacity and capability. That not only expands our own offering, but also presents a clear opportunity to the Company to acquire more of these customers. Infoplex uses technology platforms and skills in which we are already the proven market leader, providing managed private cloud services to customers like Bluescope Steel, Crownbet and Movember.
“The acquisition will give us broader depth and additional skills to deliver more world class private cloud services to enterprise and government customers. This acquisition also positions Bulletproof as the largest, and most trusted Managed Cloud Services provider in the region. We are excited to count Infoplex as part of the wider Bulletproof family.”
