Datto is happy to announce we have finalized the acquisition by Vista Equity Partners, a leading investment firm focused on software, data and technology-enabled businesses. The acquisition, first announced in late October, and the simultaneous merger with Vista portfolio company Autotask, have been followed by an intensive integration between the companies. The result is a single entity designed to empower Managed Service Providers with Autotask’s in demand IT business management offerings and Datto’s award-winning data protection solutions.

As part of joining forces, Datto announced the formation of a new executive team. Under the direction of Datto CEO and Founder, Austin McChord, the senior management will now include Patrick Burns, Vice President of Product Management and Adam Stewart, Senior Vice President of Engineering of Autotask who will join the pre-existing Datto team.

“For SMBs in need of the best technology solutions at the most competitive price, we are now better positioned than ever to be the optimal choice,” said Datto’s founder and CEO, Austin McChord. “The positive feedback we continue to receive from our MSP community regarding our partnership with Vista, along with our successful merger with Autotask, only strengthens our ability to innovate, execute and deliver on our shared vision.”
