Transaction part of a multi-billion dollar joint venture to create leader in information security services
Miami, FL – November 4, 2016 – Leading private equity firms BC Partners and Medina Capital today announced an agreement to acquire Easy Solutions, the Total Fraud Protection® company. The announcement comes as part of a new joint venture, combining a global portfolio of 57 data centers and associated colocation business to be acquired from CenturyLink, along with the acquisition of Medina Capital’s security, compliance and data analytics portfolio.
Easy Solutions offers a Total Fraud Protection platform that has received numerous industry and analyst accolades. The company’s product portfolio delivers cross-channel fraud protection across transactions performed on online and mobile platforms, as well as via ATMs, Point-of-Sale terminals, and Interactive Voice Response (IVR) systems for enterprise organizations across a range of industries, including financial services, retail, and professional services.
