Kaseya has experienced tremendous growth since it was founded in 2000. In the next year, Kaseya CEO Fred Voccola expects that growth to explode in the Miami area.

Miami is the home base for the worldwide IT management software company’s global headquarters, though Kaseya has had a presence in the city since 2004. In the coming year, Voccola said he expects the company to add 1,500 new employees to its Miami offices.

This growth is in no small part to significant and strategic acquisitions Kaseya has made in the IT sector recently. The most recent acquisition occurred in June of this year, when Kaseya acquired Datto.

The acquisition will strengthen Kaseya’s IT Complete platform so it can continue to provide MSPs best-in-class solutions that help them increase their profitability and efficiency. The complete suite of products includes tools that address compliance requirements such as HIPAA, GDPR, CMMC, NIST (SP) 800-171, and Cyber Insurance policies compliance. They also help companies manage networks and monitor and stop cyber threats, manage projects, run a help desk, and solve IT tickets.

While Datto will operate as an autonomous brand from its Connecticut location, Kaseya still plans to add new employees to support the monumental growth the company is experiencing.

New Hires Show Continued Success at Kaseya After Datto Acquisition, According to CEO Fred Voccola

Kaseya’s CEO has seen much success in the information technology industry. Voccola has also served as the co-founder and COO of Identify Software and is the former president of the Brand Network Division at Yodle. Now, in his seventh year as the leader of Kaseya, Voccola continues to take things to new heights.

Kaseya’s hiring spree under Voccola began several years ago but spiked last year following the acquisition of RocketCyber, a managed SOC platform based in Dallas. SOCs require monitoring around the clock by cybersecurity analysts who must detect and respond to any threat clients are facing on their networks or on the cloud.

Kaseya CEO Fred Voccola said that these additional new employees will necessitate more office space. As such, the company is expanding its current location in Brickell by 20,000 square feet, while also obtaining new office space nearby that could add 50,000 more square feet of office space.

As part of the hiring spree, Kaseya plans to employ senior architects, various technicians, cybersecurity engineers, and analysts, Voccola said.

Kaseya is benefitting from the influx of talented workers in tech fields that began flocking to the Miami area during the COVID-19 pandemic. As he said in a recent interview about the topic: “In the early days, we would relocate people to Miami from other parts of the country and the world. We don’t have to do that as much, which is pretty nice. We develop a lot of our own talent.”

He said that Kaseya has had particularly good luck hiring talented workers straight out of Florida International University, which is based in Miami.

With all this projected growth, Voccola has high hopes for where Kaseya is going in the future. And with the demand for cybersecurity and IT services only continuing to rise, it’s no surprise that the company is optimistic about its future.
