Matt Bolton, leader of the product development team at Quest Software and member of the MSPmentor 250, has made a career out of making moves and changes at the right time. He made a successful early career out of analyzing investments for a start-up venture capital firm, yet knew when it was right to make the jump into the technology space as he saw a need for more innovative solutions surrounding data backup and recovery in the 1990′s. So Bolton joined a team that built Lasso Logic. He knew the right time to sell Lasso to SonicWALL. Then he began a new venture called PacketTrap, which Quest Software acquired in 2009. Now Bolton and the PacketTrap/Quest team are helping service providers identify the right business model for their needs.
