Martello Technologies Completes Merger with Elfiq Networks
Teaming Martello’s network performance management solutions with Elfiq Networks’ SD-WAN technology creates unparalleled capabilities for delivering real-time services in the cloud.
Ottawa, Canada (January 4, 2018) – Martello Technologies, the provider of performance management solutions for real-time communications, announced today that it has merged with SD WAN network performance and business continuity company Elfiq Networks. As digital transformation accelerates, delivering real-time services has become more challenging with the move to the cloud. Today’s transaction creates a new market leader with solutions that manage the performance of these services on distributed cloud networks. Elfiq Networks becomes a subsidiary of Martello Technologies.
Martello has grown rapidly with software as a service (SaaS) that monitors more than 5,000 networks globally, detecting and troubleshooting network problems. By adding Elfiq Networks’ powerful SD WAN capabilities, Martello can now complete the network performance management cycle for its customers, fixing these problems with smarter bandwidth management, added flexibility and higher network responsiveness.
Together, Martello and Elfiq Networks will leverage a world class team as they advance their network performance management business. Existing leadership remains in place, bolstered by the addition of President and CEO John Proctor. Sampford Advisors acted as exclusive M&A adviser to Martello on this transaction.
“This transaction offers value for customers and shareholders”, says John Proctor, Martello’s President and CEO. “We’ll grow faster and solve our customer’s problems more effectively, and will be well positioned to accelerate market share through both organic growth and future acquisitions”.
“Together, we can position our customers for digital transformation and help them deliver a better user experience,” says Elfiq Networks President, CTO and Co-Founder Fred Parent. “This is a unique opportunity to create a market leader in this space, and I look forward to working with the entire Martello team to make it happen”
