Park Place Technologies Acquires Network Monitoring Firm Entuity

Data center maintenance provider Park Place Technologies, backed by private equity, is acquiring Entuity, a network performance monitoring software company with offices in Boston and London. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Mayfield Heights, Ohio-based Park Place traditionally acquires third-party maintenance companies, including the recent acquisition of MCSA Group Limited, a UK-based business-critical IT services and solutions provider. Park Place has made 12 acquisitions since 2016. Key deals include Latin America-based CMG-Nicsa, Singapore-based Axentel Technologies and Houston-based Solid Systems CAD Services (SSCS).

Buying Entuity extends Park Place into monitoring, automated maintenance, Network Operations Center (NOC) services, event management, and IT data analytics, the company said.

Entuity, founded in 1997, has worked in network performance monitoring for more than 20 years. Key MSP partners include Ensono, which leverages Entuity Network Analytics to help automate IT service management (ITSM).
