Kaseya sees continued growth following a standout 2021

By Shannon Williams, Fri 14 Jan 2022

Kaseya has announced that the company grew by over 25% in 2021, driven by multiple strategic acquisitions and a continued focus on helping MSPs expand their businesses through sales and marketing enablement.  

As MSPs and internal IT teams adjusted to new hybrid and remote work environments, Kaseya provided hundreds of deep workflow integrations that allowed IT professionals to work more efficiently and overcome business challenges around cybersecurity and compliance that grew in complexity throughout 2021. 

"While 2021 saw economic recovery in certain parts of the world, IT professionals still faced incredible uncertainty as they navigated ever-evolving IT environments on budgets that continue to be stretched by a growing volume of new technologies," says Fred Voccola, CEO of Kaseya. 

"We made two acquisitions that addressed key pain points for MSPs and SMBs, launched our Connect IT Community and released innovative new products like VulScanall with a focus on helping our customers eliminate wasted time and stretch their budgets further," he says.

"The IT Complete suite continues to be the gold standard for IT professionals in need of solutions that are truly automated, secure and priced right to ensure maximum profitability."

Voccola says the Kaseya family will continue to grow in 2022, with plans for more than 1300 new hires worldwide across its Miami headquarters as well as its offices in Dublin, Krakow and Sydney. 

Acquisitions of RocketCyber and TruMethods further strengthened Kaseyas IT Complete suite of solutions. In February 2021, Kaseya acquired managed security operations centre solution RocketCyber to help its customers cut through the noise and respond to threats across endpoints, networks and cloud attack vectors. 

Through its integrations with Kaseyas VSA, BMS and Passly solutions, RocketCyber users can easily deploy the solution across their environment and quickly create relevant incident tickets. 

In May 2021, Kaseya acquired business transformation organisation TruMethods to allow MSPs to build more strategic relationships with their customers and increase monthly recurring revenue. Through the myITprocess virtual CIO solution, FormulaWon training and TruPeer groups, MSPs can use proven methods to grow their businesses.  

Connect IT Global hosted thousands at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Kaseya held its annual Connect IT event in October 2021 with a jam-packed schedule that included keynotes from experts including Kaseya CISO Jason Manar, cybersecurity management sessions and even a few laughs from popular actor Nick Offerman.

Kaseya launched the Connect IT Community to allow IT professionals to share best practices across the globe. TheConnect IT Community is an online collaboration platform that enables individuals to use Kaseya products more effectively and network with IT professionals around the world. The Connect IT Community is the new home to Kaseya's Automation Exchange, which includes hundreds of scripts that users can share, buy and sell.
