Acquisitions by Quest Software

Quest Software was acquired by Dell in September of 2012 but had acquired a myriad of companies itself throughout its history. These acquisitions helped to make Quest Software an attractive addition to Dell's enterprise software strategy for simplifying IT, mitigating risk and accelerating results.

Quest Software's acquisition strategy was to strengthen its product portfolio by seeking small companies with leading-edge products and people. This focus on innovation allowed Quest Software to adapt quickly to customer needs as markets and technologies changed, and to constantly provide new solutions to address the most complex IT challenges.
