DesktopStandard Corporation, the leading developer of Group Policy-based enterprise desktop management products, today announced it has been acquired by Microsoft Corp. The addition of DesktopStandard demonstrates Microsoft's commitment to help customers leverage the value of policy-based management and maximize the value of their investments in Microsoft Active Directory.
"Joining with Microsoft will allow DesktopStandard to more quickly meet our goal of helping customers extend Group Policy to handle the majority of their distributed management tasks and to provide a more manageable environment for doing so," said DesktopStandard's CTO and cofounder Eric Voskuil, who will join Microsoft's Windows Enterprise Management Division in the role of Software Architect. "Customers will benefit now and into the future as our innovative team joins Microsoft in building the future of model-based policy management technologies."
