Orcon acquires ISPs iGRIN and Infogen

Comes under Orcon ownership on September 1.

Internet service provider (ISP) Orcon has acquired ISPs iGRIN and Genesis Energy's Infogen. Whagarei-based iGRIN has been using Orcon's network for the past eight years and offers broadband, dial-up, web hosting and domain services.

Infogen has also been offering the Orcon service for more than six years as part of Genesis Energy's retail plan. The two companies have nearly 9000 customers.

Orcon CEO Scott Bartlett says it will be business as usual for both ISPs.

'While initially the only change for consumers will be the Orcon name on the invoice, we are also confident that longer term our focus on providing first class internet will bring new benefits for customers of both," he claims.

The ISPs become part of Orcon on Tuesday, September 1.

From new extortion schemes, outside threats and rising cyber attacks, the art of securing the enterprise has seldom been so complex or challenging. With distance no longer a viable defence, Kiwi businesses are fighting to stay ahead of the security curve. In total, 28 per cent of local businesses faced a cyber attack last year, with the number in New Zealand set to rise in 2017. Yet amidst the sensationalism, media headlines and ongoing high profile breaches, confusion floods the channel, as partners seek strategic methods to combat rising sophistication from attackers. In sizing up the security spectrum, this Reseller News roundtable - in association with F5 Networks, Kaspersky Lab, Tech Data, Sophos and SonicWall - assessed where the channel sweet spot is within the New Zealand channel.
