The MSSP focus is one piece of the overall Presidio business focus -- which includes close digital, cloud and cybersecurity relationships with Cisco Systems, Dell EMC and VMware Cloud on AWS (Amazon Web Services).
BC Partners' buyout of Presidio highlights the private equity industry's growing interest in the MSP and MSSP markets -- which also includes major investments in technology suppliers that sell to and through MSPs.
Presidio itself has been active on the M&A front ahead of this deal. The company in May 2018 acquired Red Sky Solutions, an MSSP that also offers multiple IT consulting services, for approximately $40.8 million in cash and stock.
