Datto Joins the Vista Equity Partners Family, Merges with Autotask
Today, we’re excited to announce a new Datto milestone. Datto has entered into a definitive agreement to be acquired by Vista Equity Partners. Vista is a leading investment firm focused on software, data and technology businesses and truly understands the MSP ecosystem and our vision for growth. Combining our leading business continuity solutions with Vista’s strategic and operational expertise, Datto’s high-growth trajectory will be amplified.
The acquisition also offers Datto the opportunity to merge with fellow Vista portfolio company, Autotask. Together, Autotask’s market leading IT management solutions and Datto’s award-winning data protection solutions will create the most MSP-centric company on the market today.
United, Datto and Autotask will deliver everything from operations through service delivery, including professional services automation (“PSA”), backup and disaster recovery, networking continuity, file sync and share, and remote monitoring and management (“RMM”).
Combined, Datto and Autotask will be a force of 1,300 employees with offices in nine countries, serving 13,000 customers and over 500,000 SMBs around the world. Datto Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Austin McChord, will lead the merged entity as CEO.
We are very excited to be joining the Vista family alongside Autotask, and look forward to delivering the best experience on the market to Managed Service Providers around the world.
To learn more about the acquisition and what’s on the horizon for Datto, Autotask, and the MSP community, join us for a webinar on October 20th.
