AppRiver, acquired by Marlin Equity Partners in 2017, has also been in acquisition mode — most recently acquiring Total Defense.

5. Talent – MSP Platform Provider: The 20 has hired Donna Pebworth as controller and Crystal McFerran as senior VP of channel marketing, and promoted Lisa Pool to senior VP of MSP marketing.

4. Talent – Edge Colocation Services: EdgeMicro has hired Martin Capurro as VM and GM of the company. Capurro’s experience in the telecommunications and IT infrastructure market will assist EdgeMicro as the company rolls out micro data centers at the edge, the firm asserts.

3. Apple Spooks Investors: Apple delivered a lighter-than-expected revenue forecast for the upcoming holiday season. Even worse, the company says it will no longer disclose unit sales information for iPhones, iPads and Macs.

The company’s stock is down more than 5 percent in pre-market trading this morning.
