Kaseya expands IT assessment and compliance software portfolio

Kaseya announced its acquisition of RapidFire Tools. RapidFire Tools provides a suite of IT assessment, internal threat detection, and compliance products. Headquartered in Atlanta, GA, the company will continue to operate as a stand-alone, independent business-unit under Kaseya.

In addition to Audit Guru, RapidFire Tools’ offerings include Network Detective, the “gold standard” trusted by over 6,000 MSPs for network and security assessments, and Cyber Hawk for continuous cybersecurity threat detection and alerting.

As a result of ongoing development between Kaseya and RapidFire Tools, Kaseya also announced its Kaseya Compliance Manager (KCM), a new product that is fully integrated with the Kaseya IT Complete platform and Virtual Systems Administrator (VSA) product. KCM is an all-in-one, comprehensive compliance management solution that allows both MSPs and internal IT organisations to monitor and manage compliance for all regulations and requirements, including GDPR, HIPAA, and PCI.

As is the case with all Kaseya solutions, RapidFire Tools will continue to be an open platform, working with and continuing to integrate with all the vendors in the MSP community to ensure the success of MSPs leveraging their solutions.

“One of RapidFire Tools’ greatest strengths is our strong partnerships with other IT management platform providers. It cannot be overstated the importance of becoming a part of the Kaseya family and knowing with confidence that our customers can continue to effectively run their businesses because of Kaseya’s open ecosystem,” said Michael Mittel, founder and CEO of RapidFire Tools. 

“This deal took some time to complete but both sides easily recognised the benefits that joining forces offers our customers. The RapidFire Tools brand will remain unchanged and our existing customers can rest assured knowing that they will continue to receive the same high calibre products, services, and support. This is an exciting time for all of us. By being a part of Kaseya, we can now broaden the reach of RapidFire Tools to the scale we envisioned when we launched the company."
