CA on Wednesday said it will acquire Nimsoft, which makes availability monitoring software, for $350m (£230m).
The all-cash deal gives the IT-management software company an entry into what it calls "emerging enterprises" — companies with revenue between $300m and $2bn. CA is looking to add new customers to its base of large enterprises.
Nimsoft's flagship product is Unified Monitoring, which keeps tab on performance and availability of business applications. Nimsoft's tools work with Google Apps, RackSpace, Salesforce and Amazon Web Services.
