Merlin invests in analytics, network operations firm

Merlin International continues to build its cyber capabilities but this time it is not with an acquisition. Nor a new hire or contract win.

Instead, the company has made a $10 million investment into another company to help it continue cyber-related research and development work.

Vienna, Va.-based Merlin has invested in Centerity Systems, an Israel-based company that provides advanced performance analytics and business services management for IT and Internet of Things environments.

This investment from Merlin will help Centerity increase R&D as well expand its sales, marketing and distribution organizations.

Centerity’s offerings are best suited for environments that include a mix of on-premise, cloud and edge devices. Its platform gives real-time visibility into the environment, the company said.

“The Centerity platform is extremely well suited for the complex IT environments of today and tomorrow,” said Merlin’s CEO David Phelps.

Centerity says its platform has helped some organizations report an 80-percent reduction in their network operations center costs. That brings benefits such as redundant monitoring, faster response times and dashboards for managers, the company says.

Merlin has been building its cybersecurity offers over the past several years and has built deep relationships at the Veterans Affairs and Health and Human Services departments. One of Merlin's strategies is to bring an enterprise-wide approach to cybersecurity.
