Allen & Overy has advised Infinigate Group AG (Infinigate), a pan-European value-added distributor (VAD) of Cyber Security solutions and a portfolio company of Bridgepoint, on the acquisition of cloud solution provider (CSP) Vuzion to create the first VAD combining cybersecurity and cloud services.

This unique Secure Cloud value proposition will enable Infinigate and Vuzion resellers and partners to support the SMB sector on the journey to the cloud - enabling them to maximise the value of their cloud investments and accelerate growth.

Founded in 1996, Infinigate has today 11 subsidiaries and employs approximately 500 staff with a pan-European business inter alia in Germany, Switzerland, Austria, the United Kingdom, Sweden, France, the Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark, Finland and Norway.
