Key integrations allow IT professionals to streamline administrative tasks like billing and documentation, protect growing volumes of data and comply with increased regulatory requirements
MIAMI, April 21, 2022 – Kaseya, a premier provider of unified IT management and security software for managed service providers (MSPs) and small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs), announced today the results of its latest innovation cycle. The company had a strong first quarter, including new enhancements to its IT Complete suite of solutions to support IT professionals as they continue to juggle growing cybersecurity, compliance and remote workforce management needs.
To further support its expanding customer base, Kaseya is full steam ahead on its goal to hire over 1,000 people globally by the end of the year — with 500 of those positions based at the company’s headquarters in Miami. To accommodate its expansion plans, Kaseya is expanding its Miami footprint with 64,716 square feet of cutting-edge building space and opened a new office in Krakow, Poland earlier this year to expand its R&D footprint. To create an enhanced workforce pipeline, Kaseya has established university partnerships with organizations like Florida International University to ensure students have the skills needed to thrive in the tech industry. Kaseya has also created the Grow Your Own program to support its new hires globally through educational programs, mentorship and leadership development.
“While 2022 has brought significant opportunities due to the need for cloud migration and hybrid workforce management, MSPs and SMBs are stretched thin as they manage IT environments that are growing in complexity—all while dealing with supply chain issues and a hyper-competitive job market that has made staffing a significant challenge,” said Fred Voccola, CEO of Kaseya. “With our newest features and integrations, we’ve made our IT Complete suite of solutions even more robust—allowing IT technicians to cut down on wasted time and more efficiently protect and manage their entire IT environment.”
Product Enhancements and Integrations
Backup and Disaster Recovery:
MSPs and SMBs can now simultaneously manage the IT requirements of any industry and government standard as well as customized sets of IT policies and procedures
March 9, 2022 – Miami – Kaseya®, the leading provider of unified IT management and security software for managed service providers (MSPs) and small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs), announced today the launch of Compliance Manager GRC. The IT security assurance and compliance management platform streamlines the assessment, remediation and documentation processes for all IT requirements regardless of source – dramatically improving organizational efficiency. Compliance Manager GRC also offers several features that support the governance, risk and compliance (GRC) needs for vendor risk management, IT policy attestation and security awareness training and tracking.
“MSPs and SMBS are facing ever-evolving compliance regulations that require continuous input from individuals across an organization. It can be exhausting to keep up with the constant changes, and much of the work falls to time-stretched IT technicians who lack the bandwidth to stay up to date on quickly changing regulatory requirements,” said Max Pruger, GM, Compliance Manager at Kaseya. “Our solution provides MSPs with a way to solve their clients’ growing compliance issues and frees SMBs to focus on tasks that grow their bottom line.”
Compliance Manager GRC is purpose-built to unify data gathering and reporting requirements based on a vast library of IT controls, ensuring that IT professionals can assess and comply with multiple standards at the same time —a crucial time-saver for those juggling numerous requirements. Compliance Manager GRC’s Rapid Baseline Assessment option makes it even easier to view initial compliance gaps across standards. It includes a new scan of the Microsoft Cloud which allows technicians to identify employee-initiated changes to the Azure environment and Microsoft Office cloud services. Compliance Manager GRC also automates the creation of dynamic evidence of compliance documents, including policies and procedures manuals and Plans of Action and Milestones (POAM).
Compliance Manager GRC also helps organizations mitigate risk by enabling businesses to assess and track compliance surveys for their vendor partners. The solution includes a brandable web-based portal that makes it easy for employees to take mandatory trainings and acknowledge that they agree to specific employer policies. All this information is presented through a single dashboard, accessible by IT technicians, operations professionals and other key organizational stakeholders. With Compliance Manager GRC, businesses can easily assess any IT requirement gaps, remediate them more effectively and generate evidence of compliance.

From key acquisitions to new regional data centers, the company has continued to put its customers’ needs first—and has seen expansive growth as a result
Jan. 10, 2022 — MIAMI — Kaseya®, the leading provider of IT and security management solutions for managed service providers (MSPs) and small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs), announced today that the company grew by over 25%. Its continued revenue growth was driven by multiple strategic acquisitions and a continued focus on helping MSPs expand their businesses through sales and marketing enablement.
As MSPs and internal IT teams adjusted to new hybrid and remote work environments, Kaseya provided hundreds of deep workflow integrations that allowed IT professionals to work more efficiently and overcome business challenges around cybersecurity and compliance that grew in complexity throughout 2021.
“While 2021 saw economic recovery in certain parts of the world, IT professionals still faced incredible uncertainty as they navigated ever-evolving IT environments on budgets that continue to be stretched by a growing volume of new technologies,” said Fred Voccola, CEO of Kaseya. “We made two acquisitions that addressed key pain points for MSPs and SMBs, launched our Connect IT Community and released innovative new products like VulScan—all with a focus on helping our customers eliminate wasted time and stretch their budgets further. The IT Complete suite continues to be the gold standard for IT professionals in need of solutions that are truly automated, secure and priced right to ensure maximum profitability.”
The Kaseya family will continue to grow in 2022, with plans for over 1,300 new hires worldwide across its Miami headquarters as well as its offices in Dublin, Krakow and Sydney.
Corporate Momentum Milestones
2021 Innovations and Integrations
Throughout 2021, Kaseya was awarded with top industry honors that highlighted its best-in-breed products, forward-thinking leadership and high-performing work environment:
The update, which was introduced at Kaseya’s Connect IT Europe conference, generates key documents – including Evidence of Compliance – required by the UK’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
Dublin—November 16, 2021 — Kaseya®, the leading provider of IT and security management solutions for managed service providers (MSPs) and small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs), announced today the launch of the UK GDPR module for Compliance Manager. Compliance Manager is Kaseya’s award-winning compliance process automation platform that simplifies assessing, maintaining and documenting compliance through its wizard-driven workflow engine, automated network and computer data discovery, web-based management portal and built-in compliance document generation and archiving capabilities.
The UK GDPR regulation, which went into effect on January 1, 2021, applies to organisations that target, process or store electronic data from UK citizens, regardless of where the organisation is located. The regulation is largely based on the original EU GDPR standard but includes several changes in key areas of the law concerning national security, intelligence services and immigration.
The new Compliance Manager module covers the new UK GDPR requirements around the collection of data from minors and representatives of controllers outside the UK and includes updated policies and procedures documents and new recommendations provided by the UK Information Commissioners Office (ICO).
Compliance Manager includes modules for both the UK and EU versions of GDPR, allowing MSPs to provide ongoing compliance services to clients that process both UK and EU personal data. For SMBs that process personal information of citizens anywhere in the UK or EU, Compliance Manager streamlines processes for internal teams overwhelmed with managing multiple compliance regulations across their organisation.
“For MSPs and SMBs that process data from individuals in the UK, the UK GDPR regulation adds an additional layer of complexity—especially for organisations that now must comply with both UK and EU regulations,” said Max Pruger, GM, Compliance Manager at Kaseya. “The new Compliance Manager UK GDPR module allows these organisations to streamline their compliance processes and generate all the complex documents required by the regulation, including the critical Evidence of Compliance. Without these documents, even compliant organisations could be subject to fines.”
The Compliance Manager UK GDPR module is one of the key product announcements from Connect IT Europe, Kaseya’s premier annual conference taking place virtually from November 16-17, 2021. The conference provides attendees with the opportunity to connect with IT professionals across Europe and gain in-depth knowledge about market trends, growth opportunities and the latest Kaseya products.

Unitrends and Spanning Cloud Apps awarded gold, Kaseya and ID Agent awarded silver and Graphus awarded bronze for cybersecurity innovation
March 1, 2021 – Miami and New York – Kaseya, the leading provider of IT and security management solutions for managed service providers (MSPs) and small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs), was recognized with five awards from the 2021 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards including honors for Unitrends, Spanning Cloud Apps, ID Agent and Graphus. The Cybersecurity Excellence Awards are an annual competition honoring individuals and companies that demonstrate excellence, innovation and leadership in information security.

Kaseya won two silver awards for Most Innovative Cybersecurity Company in North America (between 1,000 and 4,999 employees) and best Compliance Solution in North America (between 1,000 and 4,999 employees). Kaseya was recognized for its IT Complete Security Suite, which allows IT professionals to secure their networks effectively through deep workflow integrations that simultaneously increase productivity and reduce costs, as well as its Compliance Manager solution. Compliance Manager allows users to audit and document compliance from a single pane of glass for regulations like GDPR, HIPAA, NIST CSF and CMMC.
ID Agent won a silver award for best Breach and Attack Simulation for its BullPhish ID solution. BullPhish ID provides security awareness training that combines the most validated credential exposure data in the marketplace with the tools to test, train and measure employee knowledge, allowing employees who may have been the weakest link in a company’s defense to become its strongest point of protection from phishing attacks.
Graphus, Kaseya’s industry-leading cloud email security solution, was awarded bronze for Excellence in Email Security. Its patented technology employs artificial intelligence to establish a TrustGraph® between people, devices, and networks to detect threats delivered via email, including phishing and spear phishing, business email compromise (BEC), account takeover (ATO), identity spoofing, malware and ransomware.
“Kaseya’s IT Complete Security Suite is a comprehensive solution that allows SMBs and MSPs to protect themselves against a growing number of cybersecurity threats” said Fred Voccola, CEO, Kaseya. “The five Cybersecurity Excellence Awards we’ve received showcase the strength of our IT Complete solution and our commitment to keeping our customers safe from cyberattacks across all areas of their business through continuous innovation.”
Company emerged as a partner of choice given customer-centric assistance programs, product innovations and strategic business acquisitions
Jan. 13, 2021 — MIAMI and NEW YORK — Kaseya®, the leading provider of IT and security management solutions for managed service providers (MSPs) and small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs), announced today that the company grew by over 20% and saw record earnings in 2020, driven by its unparalleled commitment to customers during the worst economy in modern history.
In response to the impact that COVID-19 had on the industry, Kaseya has continued to expand IT Complete, its workflow integrated platform of IT solutions, to ensure customers have constant access to the most cutting-edge solutions. With more than 78 workflow integrations and a bevy of new product innovations, IT Complete is the industry’s most comprehensive, fully integrated IT and security management platform available.
The company also launched Kaseya Cares, a COVID-19 assistance program that helped businesses navigate government relief programs and provides access to direct financial assistance and complimentary business guidance and assistance via Kaseya Powered Services.

“2020 was an incredible year of change that provided tremendous opportunity for IT service providers,” said Fred Voccola, CEO of Kaseya. “Though economies around the world struggled, people relied on technology more than ever before. This demand transformed IT service providers into essential workers, who became indispensable in helping SMBs keep their businesses running. As COVID-19 has accelerated this digital transformation for SMBs and business owners recognize that this new normal is here to stay, SMB IT spending will continue to increase and place greater demands on IT service providers. This surging trend means that IT teams will need a robust, comprehensive, workflow integrated IT and security management solution to meet the many demands of their customers, and there is no better solution in the market than the Kaseya IT Complete Platform.”
Corporate Momentum Milestones
Key integrations included:
Throughout 2020, Kaseya and its products received several industry awards highlighting its unparalleled innovation and leadership, including:
New mandate as of Nov. 30 requires all defense contractors and subcontractors to perform a self-assessment on the 110 security controls of NIST SP 800-171, as part of the five-year CMMC rollout
NEW YORK and MIAMI — Dec. 3, 2020 — To aid defense contractors as they work to comply with new federal requirements, Kaseya®, the leading provider of IT and security management solutions for managed service providers (MSPs) and small to medium sized businesses (SMBs) announced today new enhancements to its Compliance Manager for CMMC compliance process automation platform.
By Oct. 1, 2025, the more than 300,000 non-federal organizations that comprise the Defense Industrial Base will be required to obtain the new Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) at one of five levels dependent on their specific contract. To bridge the gap until CMMC is completely rolled out over the next five years, the Department of Defense (DOD) released an Interim Rule that went into effect this week on Nov. 30, designed to improve the reporting and compliance requirements of the current DOD cybersecurity standard in place by leveraging NIST (SP) 800-171.
Enhancements to the Compliance Manager CMMC module guides defense contractors and subcontractors through the now mandatory NIST (SP) 800-171 Self-Assessment, which covers 110 security controls. The software then automatically scores the assessment using the DOD’s proprietary scoring rubric and generates the required System Security Plan (SSP), which must be uploaded to the federal government’s SPRS system.
“The impact of the DOD’s new interim ruling has sweeping consequences. Every contractor and subcontractor who does business with the DoD must perform the NIST (SP) 800-181 compliance assessment using the DoD’s scoring methodology if they want to continue doing work with 7019/7020 clauses,” said Max Pruger, General Manager, Compliance Practice at Kaseya. “Performing and documenting the required self-assessment is a tremendous undertaking that most SMBs are not equipped to do on their own. As such, MSPs have a unique opportunity to help these businesses perform their interim assessments, and prepare for their CMMC third-party audit at the same time. With Compliance Manager for CMMC, MSPs can collaborate with their clients to manage the compliance process, offer remediation services for vulnerabilities found during the self-assessment, and provide evidence of compliance for the third-party auditor.”
With the help of Compliance Manager, the MSP or SMB undergoes the same vetting process performed during the third-party assessment. As the requirements of each CMMC level build on those of the previous level, Compliance Manager for CMMC allows MSPs and SMBs to perform each individual assessment in sequential order to identify and remediate issues before the actual certification audit.
“The DOD plans to release more Requests for Information and Requests for Proposals with CMMC requirements each year, starting with 15 in 2021 to eventually all of them by 2025,”
added Pruger. “As a result, those contractors and subcontractors who achieve CMMC certification earlier have the best chance to win more contracts. In some cases, the MSPs themselves may also be required to obtain CMMC certification if they service clients with Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI). Compliance Manager for CMMC is purpose-built to automate the rigorous cybersecurity assessment and documentation process outlined by the DoD so that SMBs and MSPs can proactively ready themselves to bid for these highly competitive contracts.”
Compliance Manager is updated continuously to keep pace with the ongoing roll-out of the various CMMC developments. Currently, Compliance Manager supports the NIST (SP) 800-171 self-assessment and CMMC Level 1 and Level 2 assessments with CMMC Level 3 assessment to be available in Q1 2021. CMMC for 800-171 assessments, including the automatic scoring engine, automated SSP documentation and the required Plan of Action and Milestones (POAM), all will be available later this month.

New comprehensive module allows MSPs and IT Professionals to improve cloud management, increase security, save time and win new business
ATLANTA — July 14, 2020 – As companies contend with an ongoing pandemic and move to the cloud in order to more efficiently manage their remote workforces, managed service providers (MSPs) and other IT professionals have grappled with decreased visibility into and control over their now virtual computing environments. With this in mind, RapidFire Tools®, a Kaseya company and leading provider of business-building IT technologies, introduces the Network Detective Microsoft Cloud Assessment Module, the fastest and most comprehensive Microsoft Cloud assessment solution on the market delivering critical visibility and enabling better security and management of the Microsoft Cloud environment, including Microsoft Office 365 and Azure.
Leveraging the world-class data-gathering and reporting technology of RapidFire Tools, the Network Detective Microsoft Cloud Assessment Module documents all the organizations, domains and support services turned on for an Azure Active Directory (AD) environment to generate actionable reports for MSPs and other IT users. It is the first and only automated system that gathers this critical information and creates insightful analysis about Azure AD and Microsoft 365 services and applications.
“Managing cloud environments can become a documentation and support nightmare, as the environments grow and expand by the users and teams who access it. MSPs and IT professionals can easily lose track, and lose control, over the environment, opening the door to misconfigurations that can lead to security incidents,” said Michael Mittel, president and GM, RapidFire Tools. “With our new Network Detective Microsoft Cloud Assessment Module, we are providing a powerful tool that delivers greater visibility and more control over virtual environments to safeguard against security gaps and simultaneously save valuable time.”
Key features and benefitsSimilar to RapidFire Tools’ other Network Detective modules, the Microsoft Cloud Assessment Module produces detailed Client Risk and Management Plan Reports, as well as separate assessment reports for each of the core Microsoft 365 applications, such as SharePoint, OneDrive, Teams and Outlook Mail. The automated gathering of all information about the Azure AD and Microsoft 365 environment significantly reduces time spent on documentation and instantly creates meaningful reports that empower technicians to take action.
One of the module’s most innovative features is its ability to create a powerful Microsoft Cloud Security Report that MSPs can use to build an incremental managed cloud security service offering. The module enhances Microsoft Controls and Secure Score, Microsoft’s proprietary security scoring system, with operational and configuration risks. This information enables technicians to improve their overall network security while also providing comparative security benchmarks, measured against similar sized organizations, to evaluate their own performance.
Finally, the Microsoft Cloud Assessment Module helps MSPs win and scope new business by decreasing the mystery surrounding the state of a prospect’s Microsoft Cloud environment. MSPs can limit the headaches associated with maintaining a constantly changing, expanding cloud environment by using the module’s essential reports to help control the flow, privacy and security of the organization’s data.
As Microsoft continues to build out its APIs to allow expanded access into its cloud environment, Network Detective will continue to enhance the Microsoft Cloud Assessment Module and provide MSPs and IT professionals with even more insights through expanded reports.

New RapidFire Tools solution tackles both network and security assessments on personal devices giving employers peace of mind as the world works from home
ATLANTA and NEW YORK — April 29, 2020 – What was once considered a luxury – the ability to work from home – is now a necessity in today’s unprecedented time. The mass migration to remote work due to the coronavirus pandemic has placed extraordinary pressures on companies and their IT support teams to enable personal device use, while still maintaining security and compliance for the corporate network. To aid with this sudden, overwhelming transition, RapidFire Tools®, a Kaseya company and leading provider of business-building IT technologies, launched the Network Detective Work from Home (WFH) solution. Network Detective WFH features a self-service portal to empower employees who are working off home computers to initiate a network and security scan to be analyzed and documented by their companies’ IT support team before they connect to the corporate network.
“Many businesses were not prepared for the sudden shift of resources from offices to employee homes when the coronavirus hit, and that left many organizations vulnerable to data breaches and internal threats,” said Michael Mittel, president and GM, RapidFire Tools. “We created Network Detective WFH to address this very issue by delivering high-value, self-service assessments that safely allow employees to work from home using their personal devices. With the help of Network Detective WFH, business owners can have peace of mind knowing that the integrity of their IT infrastructure remains in place, and also save money and reduce IT workload by allowing employees to use home computers and networks.”
Network Detective Work from Home provides:
· “Graded” PC risk scores and consolidated report cards to prevent compromises to the business in areas including:
· Basic IT security protection
· Anti-virus and personal firewall configuration
· Patch management
· Third party applications scanning for potential threats
· Critical asset information for the IT helpdesk that captures computer and network data to make remote IT support a breeze
· A self-service portal that lets employees scan without the assistance of IT
· An option for automatic weekly re-scans and “grading” to ensure the integrity of the corporate infrastructure

Kaseya Compliance Manager for NIST CSF allows MSPs to help customers prevent, detect, and respond to cyber-attacks as well as prepare for the latest regulatory requirements – from CCPA to NY SHIELD Act and more
NEW YORK and MIAMI – Feb. 19, 2020 – Kaseya®, the leading provider of complete IT infrastructure management solutions for managed service providers (MSPs) and internal IT organizations, today unveiled the industry’s first comprehensive audit, assessment and analysis solution that allows users to automate compliance processes and documentation according to the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) Cyber Security Framework (CSF). This first-to-market capability within Kaseya Compliance Manager allows MSPs to better support small and mid-sized clients facing a growing number of cybersecurity threats by leveraging the best practices outlined in the NIST CSF.
Kaseya Compliance Manager empowers users to create automated, actionable task lists and corresponding reports according to various compliance standards, such as GDPR, HIPAA, and now, NIST CSF. NIST CSF provides a policy framework of computer security guidance for how private sector organizations can assess and improve their ability to prevent, detect, and respond to cyber-attacks. After its initial audit, Kaseya Compliance Manager rescans every month to create change summary reports and treatment plans. Kaseya Compliance Manager for NIST CSF is the first and only comprehensive audit, assessment and analysis process automation tool that allows any user, regardless of their compliance expertise, to identify gaps within their cybersecurity policies and take action to remedy areas of concern.
“There is an incredible opportunity for MSPs to guide their customers through the growing data privacy and security regulatory space, and provide a much needed service that will also help grow their business,” said Mike Puglia, chief strategy officer at Kaseya. “We see compliance as the next big managed service, and Kaseya Compliance Manager is built so that every MSP can capitalize on this market opportunity without the need for specialized expertise. With Compliance Manager for NIST CSF, MSPs can now leverage a proven cybersecurity framework on behalf of their customers to safeguard them against mounting cybersecurity threats as well as put them on the road to success for adhering to new state data security regulations such as CCPA and NY SHIELD. This product release is the latest of many new offerings in the Kaseya IT Complete platform that are purpose-built to give MSPs and IT teams the most comprehensive suite of IT infrastructure management solutions available on the market today.”
NIST CSF serves as the foundation for many data privacy regulations, including the Consumer Online Privacy Rights Act (COPRA), a bill introduced in the U.S. House last December, the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), enacted in Jan. 2020, and the NY SHIELD Act, arguably the most comprehensive state data privacy regulation to date effective Mar. 2020.
According to Kaseya’s 2019 MSP Benchmark Survey, 83 percent of MSPs are impacted by their end-customers’ compliance requirements and 50 percent assist end-customers in their compliance efforts on an ad-hoc basis. Yet, MSPs historically have shied away from offering Compliance-as-a-Service (CaaS) to clients due to a gap in the particular expertise needed in this space. In fact, less than 10 percent of MSPs currently offer CaaS solutions. Kaseya Compliance Manager solves this issue and empowers MSPs to capture this rapidly growing market while leveraging their existing staff.
“Kaseya Compliance Manager and its many capabilities empower MSPs to ensure their small and medium-sized business customers are fully compliant with the growing list of regulatory standards worldwide, from start to finish,” said Max Pruger, general manager of compliance at Kaseya. “With Compliance Manager for NIST CSF, Kaseya is proud to have made it possible for MSPs and their customers to prepare for almost any future data privacy regulation and audit, while also enhancing the security of their IT environments accordingly.”
Key features in Kaseya Compliance Manager for NIST CSF include:
· The NIST Auditor Checklist that gives users a high-level overview of how well their organization complies with NIST CSF to quickly identify potential issues that may affect their level of compliance.
· A white-label NIST Risk Analysis that identifies existing gaps in an organization’s protection and compliance, and produces a list of issues users must remediate to ensure compliance.
· A NIST Risk Treatment Plan (based on the findings in the NIST Compliance Assessment) with tasks to minimize, avoid or respond to risks. Users also receive a risk scoring matrix that can be used to prioritize risks, and appropriately allocate money and resources to ensure that identified issues are resolved.
· Evidence of NIST Compliance, which compiles compliance information from automated scans, augmented data, and questionnaires into one document to back up the NIST Auditor Checklist with real data.
Compliance Manager for NIST CSF represents Kaseya’s ongoing dedication to providing best-in-class compliance services for MSPs and multi-function IT teams, and marks the continued expansion of the Kaseya compliance business unit, which the company dedicated $10 million of investment last fall.

While we’re not perfect, I think we have done – and continue to do – a very good job of listening and innovating on behalf of our over 40 thousand-strong customer-base. I am incredibly proud of our accomplishments and humbled by the dedication from our more than 1,200 employees who work hard every day to personally drive the success of our customers.
