In a prepared statement, David Bennett, CEO of Connections for Business, said:

“V.NetSol offers an exciting opportunity for Connections for Business to strengthen and expand its service offering in the Miami Dade market.

George Milian, founder, and CEO of V.NetSol, added:

“Connections’ acquisition of V.NetSol provides a major growth opportunity for both our businesses through an extended service offering for our clients. As organizations begin their transition from a pay-as-you-go model to a true outsourced IT company, we will be best positioned to support them on their journey.”

Looking forward, Connections for Business tells ChannelE2E that the company is rolling out new managed security offerings focused around enhanced email protection and DarkWeb monitoring.
