Converge Technology Partners, Inc. (“Converge”) and Key Information Systems, Inc. (“KeyInfo”) announced today that Converge has acquired KeyInfo. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. The acquisition gives both companies expanded service offerings and growth opportunities, as well as provides Converge a strong footprint within the Western United States. KeyInfo provides a mature managed hybrid cloud business. Through its partners, KeyInfo manages vast quantities of customer data, particularly in its unstructured form, via its Object Storage as a Service (STaaS) offering.
For nearly twenty years, clients in healthcare, retail, finance and other critical industries have relied on KeyInfo technology services in the western United States. As an early adopter of cloud computing solutions, the company has a reputation for reliability and security that continues to inspire confidence with its partners and clients alike. KeyInfo’s dedication to data protection is apparent in their maintenance of SOC 1, SOC 2, and HIPAA compliances to ensure that they are able to cater to the diverse regulatory needs of both private businesses and government entities.
It is Converge’s intent to merge both KeyInfo and Corus360’s Cloud businesses to leverage best practices and assets across both organizations. Mutually, these companies have made significant investments in Cloud-driven technology, both bringing with them a notable list of subscribers. This acquisition is Converge's latest in a series of expansions, following the additions of Becker-Carroll and Nothern Micro to its portfolio. The result of fusing these Cloud services will result in a more attentive service level and an elevated customer experience. KeyInfo and Corus360 focus on speed, resilience, and provisioning to bring the best-in-class Cloud services to their clients. Commonwealth Capital was the exclusive advisor to KeyInfo.
