A Successful History of M&A

Kaseya’s mission is to serve the over-burdened multi-function IT professional with a complete, integrated, and cost-effective set of solutions for IT & Security management.

To cover the ever-expanding needs of the modern IT professional, Kaseya has often sought to acquire best-in-breed technology companies that complement our vision while providing our customers with proven solutions they already trust.  When united with acquired partners, Kaseya has been able to deliver a robust solution for every need with time-saving workflow integrations that can be counted on for the long term, all while lowering the costs of acquired solutions – making already attractive solutions instantly better and more efficient values for our customers.

With every acquisition we’ve made, Kaseya strives to NOT change what made these companies great; We invest to accelerate their greatness opposed to changing what works. To ensure that happens, in every acquisition we:

  • maintain the independence and brand of the acquired companies to ensure they continue with their culture and approach to innovation,
  • we substantially increase the investment in Product and R&D of those companies to accelerate innovation and integrations,
  • retain the employees of the company, substantially increase hiring and investment, and bring on many of the executives of the acquired companies to the executive team at Kaseya,
  • make each and every acquired product MORE AFFORDABLE than they were prior to our buying them.

…just look at the track record of Kaseya acquisitions.
