2017-03-22

Oneclick can stream individual software applications as well as whole desktops from any source to any terminal. The service runs 100% in the user's browser. Software installations on the end device are a thing of the past. In addition, customers work independently of the local operating system as well as the available computing power and storage capacity.

"By including oneclick in the ALSO Cloud Marketplace, we remain true to our line of providing value to our steadily growing customer base. With oneclick, software producers and system integrators can make cloud-ready any application. In addition, the access to applications through a browser greatly simplifies the endpoint management. This means greater mobility, productivity and security", said Thorlakur Thorgeirsson, Cloud ISV Manager, ALSO.

"This signature with ALSO gives us ultimately an access to a reseller network in 15 countries - from which we will undoubtedly profit. Thanks to its huge offer, ALSO is highly recognised by resellers in Europe, and even significantly expanded its reach in the past few years. Thanks to ALSO, we are looking forward to expanding the availability of our services to companies in Europe", said Dominik Birgelen, Mathias Meinke and Florian Bodner, the founders of oneclick. oneclick solution is available through ALSO Cloud marketplace in Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Latvia, the Netherlands, Norway, Slovenia, Sweden and Switzerland.

ALSO acquires Internet Smartsec
2017-03-16

Finland: Swiss distribution group ALSO Holding has acquired network and security VAD Internet Smartsec for an undisclosed sum. Internet Smartsec's portfolio encompasses secure e-commerce solutions, VPN routers, user identification equipment, smart cards, encryption technology, IDS and filtering products, as well as various firewall devices. The company also provides consultation and training in data security and data networks.

"The expertise and product portfolio of Internet Smartsec perfectly complement our range of solutions. Now we can support the growth of our customers by offering them more extensive expertise and a wider product portfolio in the growing network and security market, which will serve as an important basis for the Internet of Things. In leveraging Internet Smartsec offers on a European scale, we will be in a position to expand our Solution and Service business", said Gustavo Möller-Hergt, CEO of ALSO: a speech which closely resembles the one following BeIP acquisition in France, a few weeks ago, as Internet Smartsec, like BeIP, is a major Aruba distributor in its country. ALSO thus may very well want to strengthen its HPE/Aruba value business wherever needed and possible. "As a leading company in Europe, ALSO provides us with broad access to international markets. We are delighted to become part of the ALSO Group and offer a more comprehensive range of products and services to our customers. I am confident that Smartsec's customer-oriented approach combined with its deep technical expertise will be a strong added value in the future" said Tom Mickelsson, Partner at Internet Smartsec.

ALSO acquires BeIP
2017-02-15

France: broadliner ALSO has acquired network and storage VAD BeIP for an undisclosed amount. The parties agreed to keep the purchase price confidential. BeIP offers a wide portfolio of IT technologies and related support services across France. The company also has a limited business in French-speaking Africa. The company focuses on so-called vertical markets such as those for telecommunications operators. "BeIP perfectly complements our existing portfolio in France, enabling us to expand and strengthen our market position. Under the umbrella of the ALSO Holding company, we will generate additional growth for BeIP. Accessing new vertical markets in turn presents tremendous potential for ALSO. BeIP will help us to tap these markets in France and elsewhere", said Gustavo Möller-Hergt, CEO of ALSO Holding AG in Switzerland. "With its state-of-the-art B2B marketplace, ALSO is a leading European company. We are delighted to be part of the ALSO Group, and to meet the growing needs of our customers", said Erwan Le Guen, CEO of BeIP, who will remain minority shareholder and continue to work for the company within the ALSO Group.
