2018 was a big year for Kaseya. The IT management software maker, which maintains twin headquarters in New York and Miami, recorded over $250 million in annual bookings and grew at a roughly 32.5 percent clip. “That’s organic [growth],” emphasizes CEO Fred Voccola (pictured). “That’s not including the growth you get from companies that you’ve acquired.”
And there were acquisitions in abundance for Kaseya last year, including BDR vendor Unitrends in May, security and compliance vendor RapidFire Tools in September, and cloud-to-cloud backup vendor Spanning in October. Meanwhile, word that Kaseya had purchased managed services documentation vendor IT Glue, in the culmination of a process privately initiated by the two companies two years earlier, arrived last month.
So what does 2019 hold in store? Here are five key insights on that and other topics from Voccola in a conversation with ChannelPro this week.
