This acquisition extends Ensono’s reach to support its clients in North America and Europe, and strengthens its Microsoft Azure service offering to meet the demands of its growing global client base. 

Inframon was founded in 2005 and has grown significantly over the last 10 years, expanding its services to become a single provider of Managed Cloud and Managed Device solutions, under which Inframon manages all aspects from hardware support to user devices.

By coupling Ensono’s expertise in managing mission-critical operations and Inframon’s extensive knowledge and leadership in Azure managed service offerings, we continue to position ourselves as the best partner to help our clients optimize their IT infrastructures.”

Inframon will be referred to as Inframon, an Ensono company.  The Ensono organizational structure and executive leadership team will remain in place. Inframon’s Sean Roberts will assume the role of General Manager, Microsoft Cloud Services, and Gordon McKenna will become CTO, Microsoft Cloud Services, reporting into Brian Klingbeil, Ensono’s Chief Operating Officer.  

“Ensono has quickly become a leader in the Hybrid Cloud space,” said Inframon general manager Sean Roberts. “With Ensono, we saw an opportunity to become part of an organization that truly believes in delivering solutions that meet the individual business needs of its clients – something we’ve always believed in. We are excited to join the Ensono family and look forward to delivering great service to current and future Ensono clients.”
