Jersey-based Calligo has announced a deal to buy Cinnte Technologies, a Cavan and Dublin-based IT managed services provider, specialising in managed IT, cloud and security services. 

The value of the deal has not been disclosed.

The purchase is Calligo's eighth acquisition in three years, and follows January's deal for Dublin-based DC Networks and Dublin and Cork-based Itomic Voice & Data during the summer.

Calligo is the world's first end-to-end managed data services provider and has operations in Ireland, Canada, the US, the UK, the Channel Islands and Luxembourg, while its customers are worldwide.

Calligo said that Cinnte Technologies' core services of managed IT, cloud and Microsoft 365 mirror its own. It also said that Cinnte's advanced capabilities in IT security align with Calligo's specialism in ensuring the continuous safety of customers' data. 

"Cinnte Technologies was an ideal fit for the next step in our Irish expansion, not just in geography, services, shared partners and skillsets, but also in mindsets," commented Julian Box, Calligo's founder and chief executive. 

"There are two principles that make Calligo who we are - our focus on customers’ data and its more valuable use, security and safety, plus our determination to always put the customer first," Mr Box said. 

"Cinnte Technologies shares in both of these, with an excellent track record in client service and retention, delivered by a team that is remarkably highly-qualified, particularly in IT security," he added.
