Quest Software, Inc. announced that it closed the acquisition of ScriptLogic in a cash transaction valued at approximately $90 million. The combination of Quest, a provider of database, applications and Windows management solutions, and ScriptLogic, a provider of systems lifecycle management solutions for Windows-based networks, brings together the two ISVs that Quest's enterprise customers and ScriptLogic's small- and medium-sized business (SMB) customers look to for help in managing their Windows environments.

In addition to broadening Quest's presence in the SMB space and adding PC lifecycle management offerings to the Quest product portfolio, the acquisition expands Quest's indirect channel model that forms ScriptLogic's primary route to market. Last month Quest was named the Microsoft Global ISV Partner of the Year for the second time in recent years, and ScriptLogic looks to benefit from this strong relationship as well as Quest's substantial presence in markets around the world.
