Atos Continues Closing Deals In 2020

While many companies have struggled to survive this year, Atos has been busy making deals. As a global leader in digital transformation, Atos boasts more than 100,000 employees and an annual revenue of €12 billion. The company provides end-to-end solutions for all industries in 73 countries. Last month, it launched Atos OneCloud to boost clients’ migration to the cloud through a one-stop shop.

Just last week, the company announced that it completed the acquisition of Eagle Creek Software Services (Eagle Creek), a U.S.-based technology and management consulting company that specializes in Salesforce enterprise implementations for its customers. Atos has also recently acquired Edifixio, a French cloud and Salesforce consulting and integration company, and Paladion, a U.S.-based global provider of managed security services—just to name a few.

In addition, Atos has reached agreements to acquire SEC Consult Group, a leading international cybersecurity consulting provider, as well as Motiv ICT Security, the largest independent managed security services (MSS) provider in the Netherlands.

The Motiv acquisition will reinforce Atos’ position as the third worldwide MSS provider and expand its capabilities in key areas such as threat detection and response. The deal is expected to close in Q1 2021.

“This strategic acquisition further confirms Atos’ leadership in the European cybersecurity market. Motiv’s track record in growth, local expertise and reputation in the market will strengthen Atos’ teams in Northern Europe giving a fantastic opportunity to grow the digital security business,” said Pierre Barnabé, Senior Executive Vice President and Head of Big Data & Cybersecurity at Atos. “This complements the latest in a series of strategic acquisitions to strengthen our local capability in becoming the key trusted cybersecurity partner for global organizations on their digital journeys.”

And earlier this month, it was revealed that Atos had achieved the milestone of serving 1 million endpoints with Nexthink’s award-winning technology in just two and a half years. Several large recent installations at leading global companies such as Scottish Water and Siemens helped Atos reach this goal.
