We witnessed our fair share of mergers and acquisitions in B2B technology last month.

For starters, Sangoma‘s acquisition of Star2Star made serious waves. Sangoma is shelling out $437 million to establish itself as a top tier cloud communications provider. BCM One also made a UCaaS play with its purchase of SkySwitch. And BullsEye Telecom is building its portfolio and geographical footprint with the purchase of a broadband aggregator.

The IT side of the channel stayed busy as well. SolarWinds announced a new name for its potential MSP spinoff, and IBM made two key announcements.

We observed several technology companies, such as High Wire Networks and Netwrix, characterizing their transactions as mergers.

The full list of transactions grew too long for us to include all of the stories. For example, Hornetsecurity purchased a Spanish cloud email security solutions provider, and Presidio extended its reach beyond North America with an acquisition. Also, security platform provider Huntress added an endpoint detection and response solution.

Scroll through the 11 images below to see the latest mergers and acquisitions that impacted the indirect technology sales channel.
