Cisco Acquires Reactivity

Posted by tggokul on February 22, 2007

Cisco has two acquisitions within the space of ten days. It acquired Five Across ten days ago and now Reactivity for $135 million. Reactivity specializes in making XML gateways and this is a clear sign that Cisco is sticking with its long propagated vision of Applications Oriented Networking. This is basically Cisco’s version of SOA.

Cisco has spent neary 1 billion $ on acquisitions already (Ironport,Five Across and now Reactivity). Somehow I get the feeling that they are just getting started and we can see more M & As this year.
