Quest to Buy ScriptLogic for $90M
Quest's acquisition of ScriptLogic builds out its Windows management software line.Database and applications management provider Quest Software took another step into the Microsoft Windows sector with the June 21 acquisition of ScriptLogic. Quest agreed to acquire ScriptLogic, which develops Microsoft-based network administration and life-cycle management software, for approximately $90 million. The company already snatched up Aelita Software and Vintela, two widely known Windows management providers, in 2004 and 2005 respectively.
What ScriptLogic brings to the table is a strong presence in the small and midsize business sector, and the ability to support both Windows server-based and client-side customers, officials said. ScriptLogic, on the other hand, will benefit from Quests more global presence and acquired insight into the Windows market.
