Faegre & Benson Advises EDS on its Acquisition of UK Vistorm

The London office of international law firm Faegre & Benson LLP advised EDS, a leading global technology services company, on its acquisition of Vistorm, a leading provider of information assurance and managed security services. The deal was led by Donald Stewart. Melanie Wadsworth, Simon Hughes and Oliver Staple completed the team. The Reading office of Osborne Clarke acted for Vistorm.

EDS will combine its existing capabilities in IT security in the UK into the new Vistorm entity. This combination of resources will create an organisation with approximately 400 information security specialists in the EMEA market, making it a formidable European provider of information security services, as well as having industry-leading tools, software platforms and IT security methodologies.

Vistorm specialises in the information security sector, providing specialist consulting, technology and managed services capabilities. Founded in 1991, Vistorm combines these services to offer a complete portfolio of secure infrastructure services and solutions.

Donald Stewart said:

"Both EDS and Vistorm are highly respected for their information security services. Combining their efforts demonstrates a strategic commitment to this rapidly growing sector and to providing leading information assurance and managed security services. Faegre & Benson is delighted to have helped make this happen."
