Evergreen Services Group, a family of leading managed IT services companies, announced today that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire substantially all the operating assets of VirtualArmour, a leading global managed security services provider (MSSP).
The transaction is expected to close later in the second quarter or early in the third quarter of 2021, at which time the company will continue to operate independently under its existing leadership team led by CEO Russ Armbrust.
“We are excited to expand our cybersecurity capabilities by joining forces with VirtualArmour,” said Jeff Totten, Evergreen’s CEO. “From our first interaction, we were impressed by Russ, the VirtualArmour team and the company they have built. We look forward to partnering with the VirtualArmour team to bring a comprehensive managed cybersecurity offering to Evergreen’s customers.”

In VirtualArmour, Evergreen sees the opportunity to enhance its capabilities in the rapidly growing cybersecurity services market that is highly complementary to Evergreen’s portfolio of MSPs. Through its Security Operations Center as a Service (SOCaaS) offering, professional services and best-in-class cybersecurity offerings, VirtualArmour manages the entire security lifecycle, from initial assessment to implementation and remediation.
“VirtualArmour’s success stems from our absolute dedication to client satisfaction and world-class service. With Evergreen’s investment, we are further affirmed in the quality of our company, our team, and our abilities as a premier cybersecurity managed services provider,” said CTO Andrew Douthwaite. “It will be exciting to continue building VirtualArmour with our new partner Evergreen!”

VirtualArmour follows Evergreen’s acquisition of 28 managed IT providers since 2018. Evergreen continues to actively invest in leading IT service providers throughout North America, where it can serve as a long-term capital partner and support future growth.
