Kaseya has announced that it has acquired security and authentication software provider, Scorpion Software, to integrate with its Cloud-based IT management platform.

Scorpion Software specializes in single sign on and password management solutions. The AuthAnvil solution includes single sign on, web-based SSO, secure remote access, multi-factor authentication, credential management, compliance, password automation, password auditing. It’s used by more than 500 customers worldwide.

“We are extremely excited to be joining Kaseya, the leading IT Management Cloud software provider for MSPs and mid-market enterprises,” said Scorpion Software’s founder, Dana Epp.

“We share Kaseya’s vision of an integrated cloud platform for IT management and security, and look forward to offering the new combined solution to our customers.”

Kaseya believes it makes it easier for organisations to manage their growing set of access credentials, critical to driving efficiencies and compliance with security policies. The company's Australia and New Zealand managing director, Dermot McCann, was excited at the announcement.

“Identity and access management has just exploded across enterprises and within service providers, alongside the explosion of Cloud applications, Cloud devices and mobile devices,” he said.

“In Kaseya 8.0 we’re going to launch the enterprise mobility management, which will combine our BYOD technology with our mobile device management technology. Having an identity and access management capability built in on top of that, gives us a lot of credibility and scale in that market.”

McCann told ARN that a number of Kaseya’s customers already use Scorpion Software, so it already works well together today, reducing any integration risks. The company will be integrated completely into Kaseya, and not run as a separate entity.

“We inherit a great new team, we inherit a whole bunch of new customers, and it adds another strength and security capability to our offering.”

It is Kaseya’s fifth acquisition in a year.

“Our preference has always been to develop technology ourselves internally, but if we need to make an acquisition to address a missed technology, or a time to market issue, then we certainly have the appetite and the means to make acquisitions,” McCann said.

“But there’s certainly a lot more exciting news on the horizon.”
