Managed Cloud Provider 11:11 Systems Completes Acquisition of Static1

The enterprise network infrastructure market is valued at $56B as of 2021, according to Grandview Research

11:11 Systems, a provider of managed cloud, connectivity and security solutions, has announced the acquisition of Static1 – a provider of managed network and IT infrastructure development and services. Financial terms of this acquisition were not disclosed.

The enterprise network infrastructure market is valued at $56B as of 2021, according to Grandview Research, and is expected to grow significantly over the next five years. The shifting dynamics of remote work and the increased need for bandwidth and technology to enable the migration to wireless are major factors driving the growth of the connectivity market.

IT leaders must ensure applications and data are connected, anywhere, anytime, but most businesses do not have the internal resources to manage those new complex infrastructure requirements, stated 11:11 Systems.

Driving increased productivity, efficiency and security for its clients, Static1 designs, builds, runs and optimizes IT infrastructure. “Feedback from customers has shown that there is a dearth of offerings that combine cloud, connectivity and security in one platform,” said Brett Diamond, CEO at 11:11 Systems. “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.”

Other Acquisitions: Unitas, Cleareon, iland, Green Cloud Defense

Static1 is a leader in complex industries such as media, entertainment, pharmaceutical, retail, financial services and not-for-profits. Their services span the gamut from connectivity to security management to monitoring, network, infrastructure and SD-Wan technology. Through this acquisition, Static1’s team and technology will complement 11:11’s recent acquisitions of Unitas, Cleareon, iland and Green Cloud Defense – each of which hold market leadership positions within the cloud, connectivity and security spaces.

“11:11 and Static1 share a vision for addressing the most pressing issues that businesses face,” said Anthony Lobretto, President and CTO at Static1. “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.”

11:11 is backed by Tiger Infrastructure Partners, a middle-market private equity firm that invests in growing infrastructure platforms.

Q Advisors, a global TMT investment banking boutique, acted as exclusive financial advisor to 11:11 Systems in connection with this transaction. Perkins Coie acted as legal advisor to 11:11 Systems.
