Kroll Ontrack Aquires Ibas

In 2006 KrollOntrack acquired Ibas, the Norwegian based data recovery and forensics company. This acquisition came just after Ibas acquired Vogon. Vogon was the only data recovery company in the UK which came close to the data recovery arm of KrollOntrack – Ontrack.

This meant, with one single aqusition, KrollOntack now controlled the three larest data recover companies in the EU, Ontrack, Vogon, and Ibas.

However the acquisitions were not handled particularly well and most forensics staff within Ibas, Vogon, and KrollOntrack left, either to set up new companies or join other firms. Data recovery staff from Vogon and Ibas also left, again either setting up new companies or joining others.
