New York—Ziff Davis Media announced Monday that it has acquired DeviceForge, a privately held vertical online b-to-b publishing company headquartered in Palo Alto, Calif. Financial terms were not disclosed.

With the deal, Ziff Davis takes control of several vertical technology and information Web sites, including LinuxDevices.com, WindowsForDevices.com, DeviceForge.com and DesktopLinux.com.

The deal follows on the heels on Ziff Davis’ acquisition of Connexus Media.

"Technology professionals gravitate toward vertical, topic-focused Web sites that deliver the news and product information they need, and smart marketers leverage these resources to increase their reach to targeted audiences," Jason Young, president of Ziff Davis’ Internet and consumer technology group, said in a statement.
