Fastest Growing SharePoint Independent Software Vendor Expands Best-in-Class SharePoint Management Suite With Industry's Fastest Backup Product

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - Oct 23, 2013) - Today, Metalogix, the leading provider of content infrastructure management software to improve the use and performance of enterprise content on Microsoft SharePoint, Exchange and Cloud platforms, announced it has acquired Idera's highly successful and profitable SharePoint business, including the market-leading backup and monitoring products, SharePoint Backup and SharePoint Diagnostic Manager. The acquisition of Idera's SharePoint products, customer base, brands and all related assets expands Metalogix suite of best-of-breed content infrastructure management software and strengthens the company's position as the fastest-growing SharePoint Independent Software Vendor (ISV).

Metalogix suite of best-in-class SharePoint products now includes Idera's SharePoint Backup product, the industry's fastest SharePoint backup technology, which delivers instant deployments and full farm protection of business critical content. Metalogix will integrate SharePoint Backup with Metalogix StoragePoint, the industry-leading storage optimization technology, to provide lightning-fast speeds for the backup and recovery of terabytes of content in just minutes, instead of hours or days. SharePoint Backup also features easy, granular document recovery capabilities and powerful backup file compression that saves storage space, which is essential as organizations work to manage a rapidly expanding volume of SharePoint content for today's increasingly collaborative, global and mobile workforce. Metalogix will also expand the proactive real-time visibility and control capabilities of its best-in-class software suite with the addition of Idera's monitoring product, SharePoint Diagnostic Manager. Additionally, SharePoint Enterprise Manager and Audit products will be upgraded and swiftly integrated into the recently-launched Metalogix ControlPoint for SharePoint Governance and Administration technology.

"Today Metalogix is once again improving the use and performance of the Microsoft SharePoint content management platform with the industry's most innovative and fastest backup and recovery software, which enables enterprise SharePoint administrators, IT executives and now business line professionals to quickly and easily backup and restore terabytes of content in minutes, with a few clicks, instead of taking hours or days," said Steven Murphy, CEO of Metalogix. "The powerful combination of Metalogix and Idera's industry-leading SharePoint products squarely delivers on our mission to provide customers with the industry's best-in-class portfolio of content infrastructure management software to deploy, operate and protect Microsoft SharePoint platforms on-premises and in the cloud."

"The integration of Idera's SharePoint business with Metalogix portfolio of premier products for the management of the entire SharePoint lifecycle will exponentially increase efficiencies and value for our customers managing enterprise SharePoint environments. These customers will also benefit from Metalogix's larger, global, 24 by 7 customer support. This transaction accelerates our focus on a suite of Application Performance Monitoring (APM) solutions that drive exceptional customer value," said Randy Jacops, Idera's CEO.

With over 14,000 customers, in 86 countries on 7 continents, Metalogix is the fastest growing SharePoint-focused Independent Software Vendor (ISV) in the world.
