Cloud services provider, HostPapa, a Canadian company specialized in providing web hosting solutions and cloud hosting services for small and medium businesses (SMBs), is continuing its growth strategy by acquiring the security brand SecureLive, previously owned by Add2Net, alongside other supporting brands. HostPapa has also launched two new data centers: one in the US-West (California), and the other in Europe (Amsterdam).
The acquisition of SecureLive would further strengthen HostPapa’s position in the United States marketplace, and further build upon its capabilities to provide security solutions for businesses of all sizes. Other assets in the acquisition include HostLabs, a “premium” infrastructure and cloud provider. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“Through this acquisition we strengthen our commitment to providing both SMBs and larger organizations across the world, and specifically in the market in the United States, with market-leading security solutions, supported by robust technology and world-class technical support,” said Jamie Opalchuk, founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of HostPapa. “To satisfy the demand of our clients for additional local Points of Presence, and continuing our ongoing investment in enhancing our technology offerings, we are excited to announce two new data center locations. Adding these data centers confirms HostPapa’s strong commitment to customers in the European and United States markets.”
The launch of the new data center Points of Presence allows HostPapa clients to take advantage of locally hosting their cloud-based services such as websites and email in regions around the world, which may assist with reducing latency and improvement of data-transfer speeds. For example, by choosing a data center in closer proximity to their location, customers may improve the overall performance of their website and optimize the delivery of web page content and load speed by reducing the physical distance between the server and the user.
The accouncements follow the news of HostPapa acquiring Mezzohost last February. Founded in 2009 in Canada, Vancouver, Mezzohost is a web hosting provider focused on delivering affordable web hosting and online solutions for SMBs, with its customer base predominantly based in Canada.
