Quest Software has purchased the assets of Montana's RemoteScan as the Aliso Viejo-based company works to increase its presence in the desktop virtualization sector.

RemoteScan is a privately held firm that makes software for scanning and imaging applications in virtual desktop platforms – which expand a computer's desktop beyond the limits of the screen. The company has about 20,000 customers.

Quest develops IT management software, including its vWorkspace technology, which controls multiple desktop virtualization platforms in a unified format. The company has a customer base of more than 100,000 worldwide.

Quest believes the "complementary strengths" of RemoteScan and vWorkspace will lead to a larger range of options and usefulness for customers.

“The addition of RemoteScan’s technology to the Quest desktop virtualization portfolio significantly increases our strategic importance in this market,” said Doug Garn, president and CEO of Quest. "Also, their successful high volume, online sales model gives Quest new, high speed routes into the desktop virtualization marketplace.”
