Published On: January 15, 2018Categories: Buzz, Uncategorized

Ingram Micro has acquired Cloud Harmonics, a San Jose-based provider of cybersecurity solutions for the U.S. and Canada. The acquisition adds the Palo Alto Networks next-generation security platform to the Ingram Micro portfolio, in addition to Cloud Harmonics’ education, training and technical enablement services.

“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, Ingram Micro’s executive vice president and group president of the Americas. “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 advisors.”

Cloud Harmonics will operate as a new business unit of Ingram Micro’s Advanced Solutions Division under the direction of Ingram Micro senior vice president, Tim Ament. Ament will work closely with Cloud Harmonics founder and former CEO Pradeep Aswani in his new role as general manager of the business, as well as with Cloud Harmonics’ team of sales and technical personnel based in San Jose, Calif. and Austin, TX.

Further details of the transaction were not disclosed.
