    IK invests in cybersecurity firm Infradata

  • Private equity firm IK Investment Partners has acquired a majority stake in cybersecurity business Infradata Group from Waterland Private Equity.  


    Infradata was founded in the Netherlands in 2004 and provides cybersecurity and secure networking solutions, including design, delivery, aftermarket support and managed services, across Europe. Its clients include large blue-chip companies in the industrial, advanced manufacturing, financial, telecommunications and e-commerce sectors.


    The company also has a presence in Germany, UK, France, Belgium, Poland and the US, with plans to expand further.


    As part of the transaction, Leon de Keijzer, Infradata’s Founder and CEO, will move to the Board of Directors. Nino Tomovski, currently International Vice President, will be appointed CEO of Infradata.


    Leon de Keijzer, Founder of Infradata, said: “I have been proud to lead Infradata since its inception and during its period of transformation from a local player in the Netherlands to a European sector leader. Given IK’s understanding of our sector paired with their extensive history of building and growing European businesses, we are very happy with them as a new shareholder.”


    Nino Tomovski, incoming CEO of Infradata, said: “I am very pleased to take on the role of CEO and work together with IK to build the largest and most trusted cyber security player in Europe.”


    Norman Bremer, Partner at IK Investment Partners said: “Our decision to back Infradata was driven by two prominent megatrends, namely the increase of cybersecurity threats in recent years, and rising data consumption. We are excited to be backing a management team with a fantastic track record and a highly innovative service offering. We are especially impressed with the company’s multi-country footprint and its outstanding people.”
