Industry Leader Expects Record-Breaking Year of Productivity Gains and Savings for Channel Partners and Customers Using N-central 7.0 Remote Monitoring and Management Platform With Managed Endpoint Security

OTTAWA--(Marketwire - January 7, 2010) - N-able Technologies®, the global leader in remote monitoring and management (RMM) software for managed service providers (MSPs) and IT departments, today announced the worldwide availability of its new N-central® 7.0 technology with groundbreaking freemium software plus integrated endpoint security free for one year -- which together deliver thousands of dollars in savings for all N-able partners. The announcement kicks off N-able's 2010 technology roadmap and raises the bar for technology excellence and partner enablement within the managed services industry.

"Our new N-central 7.0 with endpoint security is a growth catalyst for the managed services industry and will serve as a highly profitable means for MSPs worldwide to earn more business, differentiate their services and increase their value-add," says Gavin Garbutt, N-able's President and CEO.

"At the same time, companies that purchase N-central 7.0 from N-able midmarket resellers will benefit tremendously from this release, as its freemium model and free endpoint security effectively eliminate the financial hurdles that internal IT departments face in remotely monitoring and managing devices on distributed networks."

N-central 7.0 with Endpoint Security Manager™ is the managed services industry's first freemium RMM platform, offering a hybrid of free and paid licenses. N-able's new Endpoint Security Manager offers a fully integrated and centralized endpoint security module that includes anti-virus, anti-spam, anti-malware, personal firewall and host intrusion prevention for Windows devices, along with monitoring, remote control and full asset reporting.

As announced earlier, the new freemium software and related programs introduced in N-central 7.0 represent an unprecedented $75-million investment by N-able and were introduced as part of N-able's vision to stimulate the rapid adoption of managed services worldwide.

"Now that N-central 7.0 has removed many of the traditional barriers to success that MSPs face, we are seeing the beginnings of mass-market adoption of managed services among small and midsize businesses," concludes Garbutt. "With the launch of N-central 7.0 with Endpoint Security Manager, we've enabled our partners to capitalize on this emerging land grab opportunity and generate greater, more profitable revenue streams that will fuel their growth and ensure their success over the long term."

N-able's MSP partners agree that N-central 7.0 is giving their businesses a compelling value proposition and competitive advantage. "N-central 7.0 is definitely a game-changing technology for MSPs," says Joe Popper, Owner, Computer Gallery. "By giving partners the Endpoint Security Manager technology and RMM licenses for free, N-able is maximizing our margin potential and providing us with a great point of entry for existing clients and prospects."

Core Business Services, an N-able MSP partner, is also seeing immediate benefits from N-central 7.0. "We just rolled out N-able's new endpoint security... it is amazing!" says Levi Daily, Vice President and Director of Technology, Core Business Services. "It does exactly what it's supposed to and you can't beat the price point. N-central 7.0 with Endpoint Security Manager is definitely a must have for MSPs."
