CSA’s African footprint together with the substantial infrastructure investments IS has and continues to make across the continent provide the company with increased capability and reach. Importantly, the company will now be able to meet the increasing demand from clients for full data recovery and businesss continuity services from a single provider.

Commenting on the acquisition, IS Chief Solutions Officer Sean Nourse said, “There are a number of areas where the combined offerings of both companies will provide clients with a single end to end provider of services with enhanced delivery capability. For example, CSA’s work area recovery services provide highly secure facilities and this combined with IS’s capability to deliver immediate communications services through its VoIP solutions, means businesses will be able remain online and employees productive during any disruptive situation.”

Michael Davies, CEO, CSA sees the complementary offerings of both companies as a bonus for clients.
