EarthLink to Acquire CenterBeam for Managed IT Services

EarthLink agreed to acquire CenterBeam, a privately held information technology managed service provider with a 13-year track record of delivering cloud computing and hosted IT services, for $22 million.


CenterBeam, which is headquartered in Sunnyvale, California, provides remote managed IT services primarily to multi-location mid-sized businesses.  CenterBeam operates a 140-person IT Support Center providing help desk, desktop technical support and application support services.

EarthLink said the acquisition will further accelerate its strategic transformation into an IT services provider at the forefront of cloud virtualization and provide a broader range of compelling IT products and services to middle-market customers.

"The acquisition of CenterBeam will fast-track our IT Services product development by providing us with critical scale and complementary product capabilities geared towards our multi-location business target market," said EarthLink Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Rolla P. Huff.  "CenterBeam's advanced set of products, tools and processes will enable us to quickly bring a robust set of remote managed IT Services and collaboration services to market. Additionally, CenterBeam's IT Support Center will provide expertise, scale and redundancy to our existing EarthLink TechCare remote help desk."
