Annual revenue: $260 million

Purchase price: Not disclosed

Date of close: March 31, 2016

San Antonio-based Sirius, No. 28 on the 2016 CRN Solution Provider 500, used some of its private equity backing this March to acquire a next-generation network security-focused U.S. government solution provider, Force 3.

Sirius' purchase of the Crofton, Md-based solution provider, No. 79 on the CRN SP 500, expanded the provider's presence in the Mid-Atlantic region and allows it to tap into additional contract vehicles for public sector clients, according to Sirius.

Force 3's networking and security proficiencies will also boost Sirius' data center focus and will help the combined company deliver stronger end-to-end solutions, according to the companies.

Force 3 will continue operating as a separate legal entity and maintain the Force 3 name.
