Quest acquires RemoteScan

Quest Software announced its acquisition of the assets of RemoteScan, a company in the Virtualization Desktop business. RemoteScan focuses on scanning and imaging device connectivity in Windows Terminal, Citrix XenDesktop and XenApp and Quest vWorkspace. The company is based in Missoula, Montana, and until now it has had its main focus on the document management and healthcare markets.

This acquisition enriches the portfolio of vWorkspace, Quest own VDI product, with a base of 20.000 customers, according to Douc Garn, Quest Software CEO. It is clear that a timely announcement has the added benefit of clearing the clouds in Quest’s own sky after the recent revenue drop, stating that the net income drop was due acquisitions and increased leverage of operational costs: with an increase in revenues from $171 M to $188 M year over year this might be a credible assertion.
