Having acquired London-based Google partner Amido for up to £28.5m in April, the UK arm of this global MSP now boasts public cloud skills across AWS, Azure and Google. Ensono Ltd's calendar 2020 revenues rose five per cent to £80.3m, as a respective 27 and 36 per cent hike in public cloud and mainframe sales was offset by lower consulting and infrastructure/private cloud revenues. Globally, Chicago-based Ensono has 2,600 staff and 220 customers. It changed private equity owners in March, with KKR its new backer.
Although Ensono Ltd has clients in the Covid-hit leisure and retail verticals, it stressed that demand for its cloud and cybersecurity offering has been turbo-charged by lockdown. It did, however, blame the pandemic for a £1.2m drop in consulting sales (with clients deferring non-urgent, one-off projects).
