Monitis Joins to GFI Software What to Expect

On October 25, 2011 GFI announced that it has acquired Monitis, the pioneer of cloud-based network and systems monitoring solutions. From the first sight it seems that the joint is quite profitable for both companies, but let’s discuss this step by step.

For those who have no idea what companies these two are, I’m going to make a little introduction. So:

GFI: GFI is a software company specialized in powerful, award-winning IT solutions for small and medium-sized businesses, including web and mail security, archiving, backup and fax, networking and security software, and hosted IT solutions. The core values of the company are award-winning technology, a competitive pricing strategy, and a strong focus on the unique requirements of SMEs. It has an extensive global partner community and is also the Gold Certified Partner of Microsoft.

Monitis: Monitis is an Armenia-based company, which provides network and systems monitoring software as a service (SaaS) for IT support specialists. Now more than 80.000 users worldwide have chosen Monitis’ products: website monitoring, site load testing, transaction monitoring, application and database monitoring, cloud resource monitoring, and server and internal network monitoring.

The CEO of Monitis Mr. Hovhannes Avoyan who is also the founder of Sourcio, one of Armenia’s leading IT consulting companies, stated: “Joining GFI Software gives us the capital, expertise and business resources that will enable us to make our products stronger and invest in features and functions that will help our customers’ businesses grow.GFI is a leader in the network monitoring and management market in the SMB space, and our solutions strongly complement one another now and will be increasingly interconnected as cloud computing continues to grow.”

The same opinion had GFI’s CEO Walter Scott: “Today’s acquisition shows our commitments to expanding our solutions, helping our customers succeed in the rapid uptake of cloud-based services, As more and more SMBs adopt cloud computing, GFI is diversifying its own product portfolio to ensure we continue delivering the technology that ensures our customers remain leaders in their fields. While cloud computing enables companies to cut costs and streamline operations, it adds an unprecedented layer of management challenges for which Monitis offers a great fit.”

Monitis technology will be utilized in two ways.

  1. It’ll be integrated into the GFI MAX RemoteManagement platform for MSPs, to allow MSPs to remotely monitor and manage their customers’ cloud-based solutions as well as on premise infrastructure.
  2. It’ll continue to march forward as its own brand and the solutions will continue to be available as free and paid services to customers worldwide.

So, let’s follow how GFI-Monitis grows and time will show whether it was a good idea to join each other or not.
