N-able Technologies(R) Posts Record Year of Growth, Outlines Game Plan for 2013

2012 Success Demonstrated by Substantial N-able MSP Partner Growth Rates Worldwide, Record-Setting Satisfaction Ratings and Industry Awards

OTTAWA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/30/13 -- N-able Technologies, the global leader in remote monitoring and management (RMM) and service automation software, today announced it exceeded its aggressive company growth expectations by 47 percent and achieved record-high partner satisfaction and growth ratings in 2012. N-able CEO Gavin Garbutt also stated that, thanks to its managed service provider (MSP) partners, the industry innovator is well positioned to accelerate growth in 2013 and will continue to execute against its core vision of making N-able's partners the world's most successful MSPs.

"N-able made significant technology gains across the board in 2012 that directly and positively impacted the success of our MSP partners worldwide, elevated the discussions around managed services and gave us, and our channel partners, a competitive edge that will grow even stronger in 2013," says Garbutt.

One of the many metrics N-able uses to benchmark performance and measure success is the average growth percentage its MSP partners achieve year over year. In 2012, the number of clients managed by N-able partners grew an average of 44 percent, bringing the total number of small and mid-size businesses (SMBs) and enterprises (SMEs) managed by N-able's N-central® RMM platform to more than 82,000. Another performance indicator tracked by N-able is number of devices managed by N-able's MSP partners, which increased by 67 percent in 2012.

N-able's President and COO JP Jauvin attributes much of the company's MSP partner growth to the sizable investments N-able makes year over year in business enablement, partner support and technical innovation.

In 2012, N-able doubled its Partner Development Specialist (PDS) team to assist its MSPs with sales and marketing programs, as well as launched its industry-changing Automation Manager, proprietary MSP Technician's Runbook and Report Manager 4.0 with PSA Insight to allow MSPs to have the industry's best centralized reporting for RMM and professional services automation (PSA).

Additionally, N-able forged new technology alliances with Live VHD and Bitdefender and strengthened its relationships with CA Technologies and Ingram Micro to bring added value and managed service capabilities to its MSP partners. The company also welcomed more than 300 MSPs from competitive platforms in 2012, and earned nearly a dozen industry awards including CRN's prestigious Tech Innovator Award, the MVP Award from Redmond Magazine and the All Star Award from ChannelPro SMB Magazine.

Looking ahead, Jauvin says N-able will continue to execute against its vision and stated roadmap by introducing advancements to N-central and Automation Manager that will proactively address mobile device management (MDM), as well hybrid IT environments that leverage both private and public clouds.

"N-able is the undisputed leader in MSP service automation because we've put our partners' needs first and invested in the technology, people and processes they require to successfully standardize, scale and automate their IT service delivery models," says Jauvin. "One of our top priorities is to help MSPs dramatically increase internal productivity and profitability through IT automation and services excellence."

BlueWave Computing, an Atlanta-based N-able MSP Elite partner, saved $1million in engineering time and costs in 2012 thanks to the increased efficiencies and productivity gained from using N-central to automate time-consuming tasks.

"With up to 3,000 servers under management with N-central -- and 18,000 total devices -- we've used N-able's Automation Manager to schedule and automate routine maintenance tasks that had been taking our engineers up to two hours to perform for each server. Now, that same work takes only 10 minutes," says Sean Vojtasko, executive vice president, BlueWave Computing. "We're thrilled with the time savings, which has enabled us to re-deploy our team to focus on other aspects of the business."

Continuing its momentum in 2013, N-able was recently named "Best Channel Vendor" in the RMM category by Business Solutions Magazine and the company's Senior Vice President and Channel Chief Mike Cullen was also recognized earlier this month as the most influential executive in the managed services industry by Channelnomics.

"It's been another banner year for N-able and our MSP partners," concludes Garbutt. "We have high expectations for 2013 and will continue to work with our partners to exceed our goals, accelerate adoption of managed services worldwide and set new standards of excellence in all we do."

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service? The ability to turn your IoT service into profit requires the ability to create a monetization strategy that is flexible, scalable and working for you in real-time. It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...
Extracting business value from Internet of Things (IoT) data doesn’t happen overnight. There are several requirements that must be satisfied, including IoT device enablement, data analysis, real-time detection of complex events and automated orchestration of actions.
