Quest snaps up Quadrotech to strengthen management and migration solutions for Microsoft 365
Quest Software, a global systems management and security software provider, has announced the acquisition of Quadrotech, strengthening Quest’s position as a vendor for modernizing Microsoft environments.
Quadrotech offers management and migration solutions for Microsoft 365 / Office 365, filling major needs for organizations as Office 365 adoption soars during the shift to remote work. Quadrotech solutions will add significant value to Quest’s offering, including new Office 365 multi-tenant management capabilities for customers and MSPs and better alignment on enhanced migration offerings.
Already a longtime Quadrotech partner, Quest will incorporate Quadrotech solutions into its Microsoft Platform Management business unit, which also includes the recently acquired Binary Tree portfolio.
“Each day, Quest enables tens of thousands of IT organizations worldwide to navigate strategic efforts that make their organizations more efficient and effective, and Quest’s acquisition of Quadrotech enhances these offerings as those customers rely more and more on Office 365,” said Patrick Nichols, CEO of Quest. “Quest is intent on increasing investment in our core products, all with the goal to better serve our customers and both Quadrotech and Binary Tree are milestones in that strategy, allowing us to deliver one of the strongest industry platforms in migration and management.”
In announcing the acquisition, Quest noted that Office 365 has emerged as a critical application suite for the modern workplace as organizations rapidly deploy new cloud-based productivity tools to empower the workforce of today as well as the future.
Office 365 workloads such Teams, SharePoint, OneDrive for Business and Exchange are vital to office operations, especially with the increasing popularity of remote work. According to Microsoft, users worldwide spent more than 30 billion minutes collaborating through Microsoft 365 apps in a single day during the third quarter of 2020.
“Quest and Quadrotech have enjoyed a close synergy for a long time, with our mutual focus areas on customer success and innovation in the Microsoft space and we look forward to coming onboard to Quest and extending this strong partnership,” said Thomas Madsen, CEO of Quadrotech. “With the overwhelming interest in Office 365 as a lynchpin application for business, Quest and Quadrotech’s combined offerings and expertise can support even the most complicated customer Office 365 deployment and management challenges.”
According to Quest, Quadrotech Nova’s unique multi-tenant management capabilities are ideal for Quest’s growing partner community. MSPs benefit from integrated management services that make it easier and more efficient to manage multiple Office 365 environments.
Quest and Quadrotech have partnered for more than 5 years offering email archive and PST migrations to Office 365. Each organization is already aligned to help customers with their next migration..
“This acquisition adds more than just technology. Quadrotech hosts Practical365.com, which already has a large community following and will serve as an incredibly useful resource for Quest customers looking for real-world tips and best practices around Office 365, Teams, SharePoint, PowerShell, Azure and more,” said Michael Tweddle, president of Quest’s Microsoft Platform Management business unit.
