ATLANTA - Nov. 15, 2023 - CoreView, the #1 Microsoft 365 management platform, today announced that its Board of Directors has appointed a renowned industry leader and channel expert Simon Azzopardi as its new CEO, effective immediately. The company also announced an acquisition of Simeon Cloud, a market leader in Microsoft 365 tenant configuration management. This acquisition enables CoreView to enhance its offerings to large enterprises, MSPs, and channel partners, providing a comprehensive suite of tools for managing, automating, and securing Microsoft 365 configurations at scale. The news further solidifies the company’s reputation as the go-to Microsoft 365 management software provider.
Azzopardi is an experienced and highly successful business leader with extensive expertise in channel sales, technology, and product leadership. He has served as a scale and growth advisor at Insight Partners for 18 years, the same firm that spearheaded the company’s $10 million Series B funding round in October 2020. Throughout his career, he has played a pivotal role in the rapid revenue growth of nine startups, leading them to successful exits and generating over $5 billion in shareholder value.
“Simon Azzopardi is a world-class leader with multiple successful tours-of-duty and realizations within the Insight portfolio. His track record and expertise in scaling businesses at a growth inflection such as Coreview makes me as excited as ever for the future of the business,” said Thomas Krane, Managing Director at Insight Partners.
As businesses increasingly rely on Microsoft 365, the demand for tools that simplify, optimize, and secure this platform has surged. In turn, organizations are prioritizing cloud misconfiguration as a key security concern. According to Gartner’s Forecast Analysis, by 2026, 60% of organizations will see preventing cloud misconfiguration as a cloud security priority, compared with 25% in 2021 (Gartner, July 2023).
With the integration of Simeon Cloud's innovative solutions, CoreView will be uniquely positioned to address these concerns, providing MSPs and large enterprises with a suite of tools to manage, automate, and back up Microsoft 365 configurations at scale, ensuring compliance and security. This further solidifies CoreView's reputation as the go-to Microsoft 365 management software provider.
CoreView and Simeon Cloud serve as extensions of any IT team to ensure their Microsoft 365 environment is managed securely and efficiently. Simeon Cloud automates the initial setup of Microsoft 365 tenants and backs up and monitors all infrastructure configurations. CoreView then provides day-to-day management, governance, and automation across all objects in the Microsoft 365 tenant.
"CoreView is an extraordinary company that assists organizations from many industries, including higher education, healthcare, and the public sector, to name a few, manage and ensure their Microsoft 365 environment is managed securely and efficiently,” said Simon Azzopardi, CoreView’s incoming CEO.
“Simeon Cloud's tenant configuration management solution complements CoreView’s offering and is something our partners and customers have been searching for. This acquisition expands our value to our customers while bringing visibility to the huge challenges they face around configuration management.”
