Ampion, Aussie cybersecurity provider, acquired by Wipro
Ampion, an Australian provider of cybersecurity, DevOps and engineering services, has been acquired by Wipro, a global information technology, consulting and business process services company. Ampion was formed through the merger of IT services providers Revolution IT and Shelde. The merged entity, Ampion, is headquartered in Melbourne, with offices in Sydney and Brisbane as well as a zone 3 facility in Canberra.
Wipro and Ampion’s combined offerings, powered by engineering transformation, DevOps and security consulting services, are predicted to bring scale and market agility to respond to the growing demands of customers.
Jamie Duffield, CEO of Ampion, said the company’s clients, employees and the larger market ecosystem will benefit from the synergies of Ampion and Wipro’s combined portfolio of transformation offerings.
“We believe that Ampion’s experience, talent, capabilities and proven client credentials in ANZ, coupled with Wipro’s global scale, leadership in technology, and a deep understanding of domain and delivery, will make us a truly formidable team. We are pleased to become a part of Wipro and look forward to an exciting journey together,” said Duffield.
Wipro’s new operating model emphasises strategic investments in focus geographies, proximity to customers, agility, scale and localisation. The acquisition of Ampion is a step in that direction, and will strengthen the commitment towards clients and stakeholders in Australia and New Zealand (ANZ).
Wipro has been a part of the ANZ market for over two decades, with client relationships across industry sectors and localised domain and delivery capabilities.
“Ampion has a successful track record and enjoys immense credibility with leading enterprises in the region, a collaborative work culture and significant local subject matter expertise. We see Ampion as a complementary force that will help us expand our footprint and accelerate our journey in the Asia–Pacific region,” said NS Bala, CEO – APMEA, Wipro.
The acquisition is subject to customary closing conditions and regulatory approvals and is expected to close in the quarter ending 30 June 2021.
