Thriving In The Face Of A Tough 2020
The adverse impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on business has been unprecedented, with a wide part of the U.S. economy seeing widespread business closures, revenue crashes, and record unemployment. However, one part of the economy, the technology sector, has been somewhat immune to the impacts, and indeed many in the space have thrived.
That‘s the case with Kaseya, a provider of platforms and services for managed service providers. Kaseya CEO Fred Voccola told CRN that MSPs--and his company--have done well this year because they provided the kinds of technology and services businesses needed to survive as the economy retreated in the face of the pandemic.
Voccola also talked about the relatively recent decision to move Kaseya‘s Connect IT conference to a virtual format, and said that if it were a live event he would go, but that if he were an MSP he probably wouldn’t.
The conversation also touched on why Kaseya is hiring people even as competitors ConnectWise and Datto are experiencing layoffs, the fall-out from MSP-focused ransomware attacks, and a hint or two about potential upcoming acquisitions. One of those hints points strongly towards security.
Voccola is not one to mince words or hold back his thoughts on Kaseya, its competitors, and the industry. Turn the page to learn more.
