CDW Expands IT Services and Offerings with Sirius Acquisition
CDW acquired Sirius Computer Solutions, a leading integrator of technology-based solutions that include digital infrastructure, cybersecurity, cloud systems and managed services. The acquisition allows CDW to scale its solution and service offerings across the IT ecosystem. With this deal, CDW strengthens its cybersecurity, digital and data innovation, cloud and managed services offerings.
Sirius’s capabilities help institutions defend against and recover from ransomware attacks. When a phishing attack allowed bad actors to penetrate a company’s data systems, Sirius aided in incident response, remediation and subsequent increased cybersecurity measures.
In a separate ransomware incident, preventive security solutions implemented by Sirius protected a company’s hybrid Nutanix Acropolis and VMware environment, allowing it to recover within a week.
