Enterprise systems management software vendor Quest Software has acquired NetPro Computing, a provider of optimization tools for Microsoft environments, for $78.7m.
Quest said the acquisition will enable it to offer products to migrate, manage, and secure Microsoft Active Directory, Exchange, SharePoint, and SQL Server environments. It plans to retain key members of NetPro’s management team and will continue to offer products from both companies independently. The companies are expected to announce the roadmap for new products on October 15.
The acquisition follows Quest’s January purchase of PassGo and last year’s acquisition of Windows-based lifecycle management software developer ScriptLogic for $90m.
