Enterasys Networks was bought by rival Extreme Networks for $180 million in late 2013. Prior to the acquisition, the company was a global provider of networking hardware, security software, and related installation, maintenance, and support services. Its products included switches, routers, and security applications that enhanced voice, video, and data communications, as well as wireless controllers and access points that allow remote access to business applications and data.

Extreme Networks bought Enterasys from Siemens Enterprise Communications, a joint venture owned by private equity firm The Gores Group and Siemens AG. Enterasys was the joint venture's network infrastructure and security arm. The combined venture, which also incorporated a call center software business, significantly boosted Enterasys' customer base and presence worldwide.
