Posted on 30 May 2013.
GFI Software acquired the online backup software company IASO, based in The Netherlands.

IASO provides cloud-based solutions that provide customers with secure backup and recovery of their digital assets across all of the main computing platforms.

"We have been using IASO's technology in GFI MAX RemoteManagement for over a year and it has been a great success with our customers. Acquiring IASO's technology provides us with a huge opportunity to expand this side of our business, target new opportunities in the MSP community and among businesses that want to reduce the technical and logistical overhead of backup and benefit from the fastest cloud based restore available," said Walter Scott, CEO at GFI Software.

"We are constantly on the lookout for new technologies that will help us solve our customers' problems and enhance our products. The acquisition of this technology will strengthen our portfolio and allow us to address the rapidly-growing demand for online backup solutions. We believe strongly that best backup practice follows the Disk-to-Disk-to Cloud (D2D2C) or hybrid approach. The unique True Delta and Local Speed Vault technologies developed by IASO enable MSPs and businesses to follow this best practice, benefit from ultra-fast online backups and remain confident that their data is secure and available at the touch of a button, when they need it," Scott added.

Details of the deal are not being disclosed.
