Metalogix, has acquired Axceler’s SharePoint business, including the widely adopted governance and administration product, ControlPoint for SharePoint Administration. The acquisition of Axceler’s related products, employees, assets and brands, positions Metalogix as the fastest growing SharePoint-focused independent software vendor (ISV) in the world, the company reports. Terms of the deal were not announced.
Metalogix says the addition of ControlPoint for SharePoint Administration to the Metalogix portfolio of content infrastructure software establishes the company as a single-source supplier of premier products for the management of the entire SharePoint lifecycle. The expanded Metalogix product portfolio is said to deliver more visibility and proactive control over enterprise SharePoint environments. It also enables customers to effectively manage the increasing scale of SharePoint deployments, explosive growth in business content and the need to mitigate security risks.
ControlPoint for SharePoint Administration enables organizations to easily manage their SharePoint platform and enforce governance strategies that protect business assets while driving employee adoption and productivity.
