CSC Digital Brand Services acquires IP Mirror
Singapore-based company is a leading provider of brand protection services in Asia-Pacific region. CSC is a worldwide leader in providing digital brand services to brand owners, including more than half of the 100 Best Global Brands (Interbrand®). Acquisition enhances CSC's ability to serve brand owners in Asia-Pacific region.
Wilmington, DE Wilmington, DE: CSC® Digital Brand Services announced today that it has acquired IP Mirror, a Singapore-based provider of corporate domain name registration and online brand protection services. Financial details of the acquisition were not disclosed.
Recognized as "Asia's Online Brand Expert," IP Mirror was formed in 2000 and has grown into a regional leader on the strength of its corporate domain management and brand protection services. CSC provides a wide range of digital brand services to a majority of the 100 Best Global Brands (Interbrand®) and is assisting more brand owners with launching their own domain name extensions under ICANN's new gTLD program than any other domain name registrar.
"The acquisition of IP Mirror enhances CSC Digital Brand Services' ability to provide our award-winning service in the Asia-Pacific region," said CSC Vice President Jim Stoltzfus. "We're excited about the benefits that customers will realize from this acquisition, both in the Asia-Pacific region and globally."
"The combination of CSC and IP Mirror will provide us with all the advantages of being a truly global company," said Janna Lam, CEO of IP Mirror. "We'll now become the provider with the most complete offering of digital brand services and far superior global service support to offer all of our customers and partners."
CSC has offices located throughout North America and Europe and in Melbourne, Australia, and Hong Kong. IP Mirror currently maintains offices in Singapore, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, South Korea, Taiwan and elsewhere, a geographic reach that will build on CSC's already considerable presence.
"We look forward to utilizing IP Mirror's staff expertise as we bring together the best aspects of our two companies," said Alban Kwan, leader of CSC's Hong Kong office. "This is an exciting time in the development of the Internet and for brand owners in the Asia-Pacific region. The opportunities are staggering, and CSC Digital Brand Services is ready to help companies make the most of them."
