East Northport, New York-based IT consultancy Network Solutions & Technology (NST) has acquired Cisco Systems and Microsoft partner Urban Digital Solutions (UDS), a solutions architect and security company headquartered in Uniondale, New York.

The two companies’ service offerings will be combined under the NST brand, which will bolster NST’s position in the New York technology services industry, the company said. Other key UDS partners include Veeam, Dell, AT&T, and more.

NST President Will Collins commented on the deal:

“The Purchase of UDS enhances the already broad portfolio of NST solutions. We feel UDS’ knowledge and expertise of the physical security in a customer’s environment is a natural fit with NST’s cyber security offerings. NST now has the ability to protect and harden both the digital and physical worlds. UDS also provides us with the creative solution design that the coming IoT cyber world will need.”

Collins added that UDS’ owners were both retained due to their experience and business solution architecture design capabilities.

NST launched in 2000 as a value-added reseller and service provider. Initially serving the Long Island region, the company now has three locations and also serves all five New York City boroughs (Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx and Staten Island).

With the addition of UDS’ owners, NST now has 54 employees serving more than 600 customers across 19 states.
