Thrive Networks, the Massachusetts-based provider of next-gen managed services, is buying InCare Technologies, an MSP. InCare is known for its work with health care, local governments, education and SMB customers.

Thrive says the acquisition gives it a strong presence in the South since InCare’s headquarters is in Alabama. InCare also has offices in Tennessee and Mississippi.

Furthermore, the purchase enables Thrive to better deliver and support its managed cybersecurity, collaboration and cloud services nationally.

InCare’s managed services include IT support, cybersecurity, networking, total technology outsourced management and more.
