11:11 Acquires Static1: Executive Insight
Brett Diamond, CEO, 11:11 Systems, commented:
“Feedback from customers has shown that there is a dearth of offerings that combine cloud, connectivity and security in one platform. We are focused on providing the platform for these three core pillars while ensuring that our customers’ apps and data are always running, accessible and protected. Static1 is a natural addition to our portfolio particularly because of the team’s significant depth in connectivity. With this acquisition, we will strengthen our existing managed services and add entrenched industry expertise and relationships to our portfolio.”
Anthony Lobretto, president and CTO, Static1, said:
“11:11 and Static1 share a vision for addressing the most pressing issues that businesses face. This exciting step forward benefits our customers with continued best-in-class support, greater uptime, reliability and security, all while reaping the benefits of accessing the full spectrum of purpose-driven solutions 11:11 has to offer.”
