Kaseya Buys 365 Command

Kaseya fully embraced Microsoft Office 365 on Thursday.

The Lausanne, Switzerland-based systems management and MSP tools vendor bought the technology of the high-profile Office 365 tool 365 Command for an undisclosed amount. The 365 Command technology was owned by Champion Solutions Group, based in Boca Raton, Fla., a company that is a Microsoft National Systems Integrator and an early cloud adopter. 

Much of the 365 Command technology came from Champion Solutions Group's acquisition of Charlotte, N.C.-based MessageOps in November 2012, and MessageOps founder Chad Mosman continued to help drive feature development of the product through 2013.

It was not immediately clear if any employees were part of the deal, which fell on the same day as Microsoft's quarterly earnings report, in which Microsoft boasted of continuing momentum for the Office 365 cloud productivity suite.

The 365 Command toolset consists of migration tools for moving on-premise Exchange mailboxes to Office 365, as well as tools for managing users, devices and permissions, among other functions. Several 365 Command capabilities are geared for MSPs, including the ability to manage multiple Office 365 clients through a single log-on.

"Office 365 is exploding in popularity. With this growth, mid-market organizations and MSPs are scrambling for a better and more efficient way to manage these applications," said Yogesh Gupta, president and CEO of Kaseya, in a statement. "This acquisition gives Kaseya yet another powerful tool in its arsenal to help our customers dramatically simplify management of their IT environments, and to make managing today's modern infrastructure and applications seamless for organizations."
