Westcon bulks up Euro security practice

Alex Scroxton

Westcon has said its partners can now better serve multinational businesses after acquiring its first ever presence in Switzerland in the shape of Germany-headquartered security VAD entrada Kommunikations.

Entrada distributes kit from Trend Micro, McAfee, Juniper and Riverbed, among others, and made sales of over €90m in 2010. It will now report into Westcon's European security operation.

Jens Montanana, chief exec of Westcon parent Datatec, said: "The acquisition of the second largest security distributor in Germany ... gives its European security division a wider geographic footprint to better service its customer requirements."

Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
