The channel was once again brimming with big M&A in August. Cisco, Five9, AppDirect, Check Point Software Technologies and more were wheeling and dealing with a cross-section of mergers and acquisitions that will have a long-lasting impact on our industry.

Cisco, for instance, upped its mobility chops by buying a Norway-based mobility services platform. Check Point flexed its muscles with the acquisition of Perimeter 81 and its “cybersecurity experience” platform.

Meantime, all eyes remained glued on Broadcom and its pending $61 billion acquisition of VMware. The company got past one of the final hurdles before securing long-awaited regulatory approval from a number of sources.

See the slideshow above for the big M&A from the past month that had the channel buzzing.
