Ingram Micro plans to buy Cloud Harmonics, a distributor in U.S. and Canada focused on cybersecurity, software-defined data centers and cloud technologies.
The move adds Palo Alto Networks’ next-generation security platform to the distributor’s portfolio in North America.
“This acquisition complements our strategic business objective to provide our customers with new opportunities to expand their businesses in high-growth, high-margin markets, such as cybersecurity” said Paul Bay, executive vice president and group president of the Americas, Ingram Micro. “The addition of Cloud Harmonics adds to our services capabilities, enabling us to provide our partners with hands-on experience and access to the technology, services and enablement needed to establish themselves as trusted security advisers. We are excited to welcome Cloud Harmonics to the Ingram Micro family.”
Cloud Harmonics will operate as a unit of Ingram Micro’s Advanced Solutions division.
