Dell announced on Thursday that it is acquiring Kace, a systems management appliance company that targets mid-sized businesses and public institutions, including government, education and healthcare.
Dell said it was buying Kace to expand its systems management offerings to better address IT administrators in mid-size organisations. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
"We talk directly to thousands of these customers and they tell us they need systems-management tools geared for their environment," said Steve Felice, president, Dell Consumer and Small and Medium Business.
"The KBOX family of appliances is highly capable, quick to deploy, simple to use and provides a rapid return on investment, exactly the sort of best-value solutions we're delivering to customers."
