Japan's NTT announced it will acquire German IT security services firm Integralis, a move which is seen as strengthening the company's presence in Europe while European carriers are expanding in the U.S., and U.S. carriers are getting into Asia. The deal is worth about $105.5 million and is expected to close in September.
NTT, which has been a global leader in the push toward IPv6, also is busily adding new POPs in Europe and extending offerings like IP VPN.
