Two hands shaking over a desk

Kaseya and Unitrends have announced they are merging, offering enhanced services for MSPs and enterprises on the lookout for backup and continuity services.

Kaseya explained this brings end-to-end IT management offerings to all businesses via valued MSPs, including Unitrends' business continuity and disaster recovery (BCDR) platform and Kaseya's suite of management services.

The combined offering will now cover remote monitoring and management, endpoint management, network monitoring and management, professional services automation, IT service desk, security, and backup and disaster recovery.

“We’re excited to share this news with our customers and partners,” said Paul Brady, CEO, Unitrends. “The scale of our combined company brings additional resources and talent that we can apply to our award-winning technology."

He added that the acquisition means Unitrends can expand its businesses into more MSPs using Kaseya's contacts, while Kaseya's IT Complete Platform will be able to build its presence in the enterprise market with the support of Unitrends' market expertise.

“Our customers remain at the heart of Unitrends, and we’re proud to have earned their trust with a 98 percent customer satisfaction rating. The combined commitment of Kaseya and Unitrends to those customers and to our channel partners remains unwavering as we move into this next, exciting phase of Unitrends as part of the Kaseya family," said Brady.

The companies will continue to operate under their existing business names, with Unitrends adding it plans to expand its operations, taking onboard new staff and investing in new products and services to address demand.

“The decision to merge with Unitrends was a no-brainer for us,” Fred Voccola, CEO of Kaseya said. “Over a year ago, we embarked on a journey to provide our customers with the best BCDR solution for their needs. After working with Unitrends to launch the Kaseya Unified Backup offering to our MSP customers, as well as introducing the core Unitrends product to our enterprise customer base, we witnessed the explosive adoption of these solutions and decided that it just made sense to further our relationship and to bring our two companies together."
