Hebron, KY (PRWEB) November 21, 2012
Pomeroy, a global leader in managed services to optimize IT infrastructure, today announced that it has acquired the assets of BluePoint Data, Inc. Founded in 2000 and headquartered in Boca Raton, FL, BluePoint Data provides a comprehensive menu of cloud-based managed services for networks, servers, storage, security, applications and databases. The acquisition further strengthens Pomeroy’s remote monitoring and management (RMM) offering, effectively doubling the size of Pomeroy’s portfolio of devices under management. The acquisition will also enable Pomeroy to deliver enhanced managed cloud services for those clients seeking a private cloud platform. BluePoint also provides Pomeroy with a second 24/7 network operations center (NOC) and innovative RMM features.
Pomeroy clients are expected to benefit from several innovative features that Pomeroy will embed within its remote monitoring and cloud offerings. With BluePoint’s SkyNOC offering, clients will now have a choice of remote monitoring options, either using Pomeroy’s RMM tool or BluePoint’s Monitor of Monitors (MoM) platform to leverage investments in their own monitoring and management tools. In conjunction with BluePoint’s industry-leading business process monitoring dashboard, SkyView, Pomeroy clients will have real-time visibility into the performance of their IT infrastructures as well as into their enterprise systems, maximizing productivity, protecting corporate data, and reducing infrastructure and support costs.
“With this acquisition, Pomeroy significantly strengthens its managed cloud and remote monitoring capabilities and broadens the spectrum of managed IT services that deliver value to our clients,” said Chris Froman, President and CEO of Pomeroy. “We are excited to bring to market the innovative solutions that BluePoint Data has developed.”
“We are excited to become a part of Pomeroy,” said Paul Sachse, President, CEO and Executive Chairman of BluePoint Data. “Joining forces with a leading organization like Pomeroy will enable us to offer clients and prospects a broader set of proven solutions and capabilities.”
Pomeroy is a portfolio company of Los Angeles-based private equity firm Platinum Equity. “Acquiring BluePoint Data helps further expand Pomeroy’s services platform, with an emphasis on enhanced remote monitoring and management capabilities, as well as strengthens the company’s ability to serve its clients,” said Jacob Kotzubei, partner, Platinum Equity. “We will continue seeking out new opportunities to support Pomeroy’s growth strategy.”
