Kaseya acquires Unitrends

Kaseya, a leader in IT infrastructure management for MSP and mid-market enterprise, announced its merger with Unitrends, a key player in mid-range Backup/Recovery and BCDR. The idea is to extend the oem signed recently and provide a one stop shopping for IT management and data protection globally for the mid-market and MSPs. Unitrends will operate within Kaseya and keeps its brand well known by the market.

Also it's interesting to notice, again, that these 2 companies belong to the Insight Ventures Partners (IVP) investment portfolio. I wrote a note and a recent post illustrating that something is happening at IVP for data protection:
  • This is the second M&A activity this year between 2 IVP's companies, in January Veeam acquired NW2S,
  • and IVP globally has stake at Veeam, N2WS, Spanning, OwnBackup, Unitrends and Acronis.
We anticipate some other moves to build a new innovative player especially if things leverage Veeam. It will be interesting to follow closely this story.
