Mergers and Acquisitions

MSP solutions provider ScalePad is buying ControlMap, a governance, risk and compliance (GRC) platform for managed service providers.

ControlMap’s platform allows MSPs to deliver cybersecurity compliance as a service (CaaS) for their customers, the companies said. ControlMap integrates with more than 30 systems and automatically performs hundreds of compliance checks. This reduces much of the manual work associated with cybersecurity compliance. Combined with ScalePad’s solutions, including Lifecycle Manager, Backup Radar, Cognition360 and Services Marketplace, ControlMap offers MSPs the ability to effectively manage cybersecurity compliance internally and for their clients, the company said.

“The acquisition of ControlMap allows us to deepen our relationship with our partners by adding security and compliance services that are critical for MSPs to deliver to their customers,” Wensley said. “Combined with ScalePad’s existing solutions, we now have extended our capabilities to further deliver a unified and integrated solution set for MSPs looking to drive growth and manage risk. We are thrilled to welcome ControlMap’s partners and employees to the ScalePad team, which is now over 150 strong.”

Comprehensive Cybersecurity Compliance

Pallav Tandon, CEO of ControlMap, will join ScalePad’s executive leadership as general manager of governance, risk and compliance solutions.

“By integrating ControlMap’s solution with ScalePad’s offerings, we are excited to provide our shared partners with access to a highly-automated, comprehensive cybersecurity compliance and risk management platform,” Tandon said. “ScalePad believes in our goal — to empower every MSP in the world to complete their compliance journey and extend this capability to their clients. Together we can now accomplish this.”

The demand for compliance is growing. As MSPs work with larger, more mature organizations and industries facing growing threats of data breaches and security issues. To meet these challenges, cybersecurity compliance has become an essential component of a unified threat management strategy.

“While other tools are available, they can often be cumbersome to manage and eventually go unused. ScalePad, with its combination of ControlMap, ScalePad and our core platform, offers the automation that MSPs need to effectively manage governance, risk, and compliance,” Wensley said.
