Globix Expands App Management Capabilities through Acquisition

Managed hosting provider Globix Corp. on Monday announced plans to acquire Aptegrity, a managed services provider (MSP) focused on web-based applications. Under the agreement, Globix will acquire substantially all of the assets and assume specific liabilities of Aptegrity. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

"Aptegrity has the processes and applications expertise to meet the needs of enterprise clients for complex applications, regardless of where the application is hosted," said Pete Stevenson, Globix's CEO. "And Globix's data centers, IP network and managed services operations can provide the security and peace-of-mind that clients look for when making the decision to outsource their applications and internet infrastructure."

Aptegrity ensures that e-commerce, customer relationship management, database and similar applications and operating systems are operating at peak performance. Aptegrity's operations are seen by Globix as key to the company's move toward providing full-service managed applications and hosting. Globix plans to maintain and strengthen Aptegrity's operations, ensuring all clients will continue to receive high levels of service and support.

According to Carlo Cella, Aptegrity's President and CEO, the move will provide more depth and capability for the combined company. "Aptegrity strengthens its infrastructure, Globix broadens its capabilities, and our clients continue to get the convenience of a full-service managed application partner."

Globix will now offer enterprise clients a range of services, from provisioning and maintaining network and facilities to managing hardware and the applications that reside on them. Globix delivers applications and services via its secure Data Centers, global Tier 1 IP backbone, content delivery network, and its technical professionals.

The agreement was signed following approval from both companies' Board of Directors and is subject to customary closing conditions.
