I missed the announcement that BAE was acquiring SilverSky. SilverSky was a combination of Perimeter Internetworking and Silver Sky that was a major cyber security and network security firm used by a number of large service providers. BAE is a large, global defense contractor.

"Metalogix, the premier provider of management software to move, manage and secure content for Office 365, SharePoint, OneDrive for Business, Exchange, Box, Dropbox, Amazon, Google and other leading enterprise content management (ECM) systems, announced today that it has acquired MetaVis Technologies. MetaVis is widely known for its innovative and unified cloud collaboration service management platform." [I would have just said Microsoft Partner, but I guess that doesn't cover it. I also liked the UC&C management platform. Marketing at its best!]

"QTS Realty Trust to Acquire Carpathia Hosting for approximately $326 million. Carpathia is a leading hybrid cloud services and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) provider offering a high level of security and compliance solutions to sophisticated enterprise customers and federal agencies." [source]

In a really nice blog post, Tropos announced that Cisco would be buying them. Cisco is now officially in the apps business.

Singtel graps Trustwave For $850 Million. Trustwave is an MSSP, managed security service provider.

Birch went back to just buying assets after that whole Cbeyond deal. It will buy OrbitCom, a regional CLEC with 5000 customers in 14 states.
