Kaseya Buys Office 365 Tool, Gains 1 Million Seats

By Doug Barney

Kaseya’s buying spree has netted the company 1 million Microsoft Office 365 e-mail seats, the firm announced yesterday.  Kaseya entered this ecosystem last month when it bought Microsoft partner 365 Command, which offered a management tool with the same name.

 “365 Command is a simple and affordable hosted service for organizations who want to take command of their Microsoft Office 365 subscription. Users can easily manage and gather data from any device, anywhere. 365 Command replaces the command line interface of Windows PowerShell with a rich, HTML 5 web interface. Your help desk staff will no longer have to run PowerShell scripts for common tasks, saving time and money,” is how the product was described.

 Now with 1 million seats under management, Kaseya claims it leads the market in Office 365 management. This is also good news for Microsoft, as it shows the cloud suite is gaining serious traction.

 The 365 Command tool is aimed at both IT shops and MSPs. One aspect it replaces is PowerShell, a powerful scripting tool that also requires IT to master it. “365 Command replaces the command line interface of Windows PowerShell with a rich, user-friendly web-based interface, eliminating the need for PowerShell scripting for common management tasks, saving organizations significant time and money. Flexible reporting provides instant visibility into the environment for easy management and decision-making support,” Kaseya said.

 Customer Interroll is happy to have 365 do the heavy lifting. “365 Command's intuitive management and reporting tools enable us to manage Microsoft Office 365 more efficiently, saving our organization significant time and money,” said Jim Conway, Regional IT Manager at Interroll. Another IT customer is also clearly enthused. “I love 365 Command and use the tool frequently,” said Bill Richardson, Director of IT at Maverick Funding Corp. “It saves us significant time in administering Office 365. I would be lost without it at this point.”

 Mini Kaseya Buying Spree

 Kaseya has been one busy company. Just a while ago the company was bought out by investment firm Insight Venture Partners. Shortly after Kaseya reached out and bought Zyrion, which has IT service monitoring and cloud services.
