12 January 2015 in Press release
Alkmaar, 12 January 2015 – Dutch hosting provider AGN Business Hosting BV has joined the Cyso group as per 1 January 2015. AGN Business Hosting is responsible for hosting thousands of webshops, e-business websites and online workspaces. Per 1 January 2015, AGN Business Hosting is now a 100% subsidiary of Cyso. This change both extends and strengthens AGN Business Hosting’s services. Cyso will take over technical support and add its own service portfolio to AGN’s existing offers.

AGN customers benefit from acquisition
Besides hosting services, AGN also provides development of websites and webshops. These activities are organized into AGN Business Internet and are not part of this transaction. AGN Business Internet will continue to exists and operate independently. For hosting, the cooperation with AGN Business Hosting will remain unchanged. Roy Haan, director of AGN: “Development and hosting have increasingly become separate worlds. For both divisions, that requires the right focus and scale, which is what we’re achieving with this step. We consider the synergy between our development services and Cyso’s hosting services to be a positive development for our customers.”
Since 1997, Cyso provides managed hosting solutions for the corporate market and is one of the initiators and founders of the DHPA; the Dutch Hosting Provider Association. “This acquisition fits into our ambition to establish further growth and strengthen our position within the Dutch hosting market”, says Tjebbe de Winter, technical director at Cyso. “With this expansion of our customer portfolio, we increase our effectiveness and create more possibilities to continue to develop our services.”
