Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

US copier and printing giant Ikon Office Solutions - which last week forked out for £45 million dealer Rockliff - is on the look-out for more UK dealers to buy, as it moves into networking services. Ikon has already bought three UK dealers in the last year, and said that it wants to buy more across the country. The majority of its acquisitions have previously been in the US. UK vice presidentDavid MIlls said that Ikon, which has a $5 billion worldwide turnover, was looking to acquire companies that offered IT solution that could be integrated with its copier business. He said that copiers were increasingly becoming an integral part of computer networks, rather than merely an adjunct. Runcorn-based Rockliff specializes in network design and installation, hardware and software procurement and cabling. Rockliff MD Michael Taylor said that acquisition by Ikon would allow Rockliff to grow throughput the UK. Ikon had previously bought Manchester-based Redbox and DTL. ®
