Bellevue, WA (PRWEB) March 2, 2006
Network Computing Architects, Inc. (NCA), one of the leading network security and convergence services firms operating on the West coast, today announced that it has acquired NetWorks, Inc. (http://www.netwrks.com), a regional data communications, integration and services company based in Portland, Oregon. NetWorks will immediately assume the NCA brand and its various offerings will be rolled up under the NCA umbrella of network services. Terms of the deal were not announced at this time.
“NetWorks has been a company that we have admired and recognized as one of the preeminent network services companies in the Northwest. They have some of the industry’s most well respected consultants and network engineers on staff to provide expert guidance for all types of customers,” said Thomas Gobeille, President and CEO of NCA. “This acquisition provides the perfect complement to our existing services and will enable NCA to offer our customer’s a broader range of network expertise. Our combined strength in information security, voice over IP and other leading technologies allow us to deliver on the promise of truly converged networks.”
Both NCA and NetWorks have built a strong reputation for their expertise in both voice and data networking. Mutual partners include companies like AdTran, Cisco Systems, Juniper Networks, Qwest, RSA, ShoreTel and Secure Computing. Founded in the same year, both companies have been providing networking services to customers since 1992. The combination of the two companies will make NCA one of Qwest’s leading partners focused in the area of comprehensive voice/data networking and security services to meet the needs of small businesses and enterprise alike.
“With today’s advanced technologies, a robust and secure network is not a luxury for business, it’s a necessity,” said Jeff Ommert, president of NetWorks, who will now assume the role of executive vice president for NCA. “Both NCA and NetWorks share a common vision for helping customers design and build out hardened networks that enable their employees to better collaborate with one another, efficiently run business applications, and eliminate threats to their network. Together, we look forward to helping our customers realize this vision of the future network today.”
NCA will be presenting further details about the acquisition and their future development strategies as the services of both companies are fully integrated.
