LogMeIn Acquires Ionia Corporation to Accelerate Internet of Things Opportunity

Company merges Ionia with Xively Cloud Services to help meet demand for integrated IoT solutions.

LogMeIn Inc. has acquired Ionia Corporation, a system integrator specializing in connected solutions. The move is part of a larger strategy to accelerate LogMeIn’s IoT opportunity by helping early customers of its Xively Cloud Services platform go to market with their connected offerings.

“We’re seeing a shift in the way companies are approaching the IoT. Whereas last year it was mainly exploratory and product-focused, now it’s about implementing IoT solutions that deliver maximum business value. To do this, customers need integrated solutions that tie together products, people, and technologies like Salesforce,” says Michael Simon, CEO of LogMeIn. “This acquisition enables us to rapidly assemble a team with expertise in connected customer experiences and comprehensive business solutions. By augmenting Xively with Ionia’s experience delivering cloud business solutions, we believe we can deliver the holistic IoT-based solutions customers need to transform their business.”

The acquisition will also serve as a template as LogMeIn builds out an ecosystem of system integrators and grows its base of self-service customers.

“LogMeIn and Ionia share the same business-first philosophy. We focus on helping customers optimize their connected vision so it has the greatest possible business impact, and then we build the connected solution to support it,” says Joe Gaska, who co-founded Ionia along with Keith O’Shea and served as Ionia’s CEO. “We’re excited to join LogMeIn and be part of a pioneering company that’s driving commercial IoT adoption.”
