ATSG, founded in 1994, is based in New York City. The company has 373 employees listed on LinkedIn. ATSG’s areas of expertise include Digital Infrastructure, Digital Workplace, Collaboration, and Customer Experience.

Xentaurs, founded in 2016, is based in Miami, Florida. The company has 30 employees listed on LinkedIn. Xentaur’ areas of expertise include DevOps, Big Data Platforms, Microservices Architecture, Machine Learning, ITaaS, Enterprise Systems Monitoring, Hybrid Cloud, Natural Language Processing, Deep Learning, and Application Development.

The Xentaurs acquisition will bolster ATSG's existing security portfolio thanks to the company’s managed detection and response capabilities across Micro-segmentation, Software Defined Networks (SDN), and Firewall platforms, ATSG said. It also further expands and extends the long-standing ATSG ecosystem relationship with Cisco, according to the company.

The acquisition will also strengthen ATSG's commercial reach, further expanding its presence in the Southeast Region of the United States, the company said.
