Life After Arnie: Voccola's Take On The MSP Platform Business And Kaseya After ConnectWise Acquired 

Once the planned acquisition of ConnectWise by Thoma Bravo, announced this month, closes, it will mean all the big MSP platform companies--ConnectWise, Kaseya, Datto, Continuum--will be owned by private equity.

Fred Voccola, who took over as Kaseya CEO in 2015, told CRN that the ConnectWise acquisition is good for the MSP industry as it shows the importance of MSPs to the investor community. He also said it good for Kaseya as ConnectWise will need a couple years to work through the change. However, he said, that's not a reflection on ConnectWise, and that Kaseya when through its own two-plus-year period of pain and lost customers when it was acquired by another investment firm in 2013.

Voccola also offered a peek into potential upcoming acquisitions by Kaseya. However, he declined to discuss the rumor that Insight Venture Partners may have also been planning a bid to acquire ConnectWise.
