6. Optiv

Company acquired: Adaptive Communications

Head count: 60 employees

Annual revenue: Not disclosed

Purchase price: Not disclosed

Date of acquisition: June 2

Optiv - No. 25 on the CRN SP 500 -  purchased Portsmouth, N.H.-based Adaptive Communications, No. 208 on the SP 500, last month.

This is a geographical play to expand Denver-based Optiv's consulting reach in the New England market. When Accuvant and FishNet Security merged into Optiv last year, the Northeast market was a gap in the combined companies' geographic coverage, the company said.  

Optiv executives said the acquisition of Adaptive will be “a great opportunity” for the company to gain both trust and business from customers in the Northeast region.
