N-able Technologies® Readies MSP Partners for SMB 'Land Grab' With Launch of New N-central® 7.0 and Endpoint Security Manager™ Freemiums

Industry Innovator Delivers on Its $75-Million Managed Services Market Stimulus Strategy; Announces Availability of Breakthrough Remote Monitoring and Management Platform With Managed Security

OTTAWA--(Marketwire - December 8, 2009) - N-able Technologies®, the global leader in remote monitoring and management (RMM) software for managed service providers (MSPs) and IT departments, today announced its groundbreaking N-central® 7.0 technology with Endpoint Security Manager™ freemium software is now available to existing N-able partners worldwide. General market availability will be announced in January 2010.

Blazing ahead of the remote monitoring and management industry, N-central 7.0 ushers in managed services' first freemium RMM platform -- a hybrid of free and paid licenses -- and introduces a number of impressive features such as managed endpoint security, self-healing and full compatibility with Windows 7. The freemium software and related programs introduced in N-central 7.0 represent an unprecedented $75-million investment by N-able to stimulate the rapid adoption of managed services worldwide.

"As an industry, nearly 90 percent of IP-enabled devices used by small and midsize companies remain unmanaged -- that's an astounding sales and service opportunity that's staring our MSP partners right in the face," says Gavin Garbutt, N-able's President & CEO. "Now, with our new N-central 7.0 technology and Endpoint Security Manager, we're accelerating our partners' growth and positioning them to take advantage of this 'land grab' by bringing the benefits of managed services mainstream."

As part of the N-central 7.0 launch, all N-able partners with a current N-central maintenance and support subscription will receive a matching number of newly introduced free Essential Licenses for all Professional Licenses purchased. In addition, for a limited time these partners will receive at no charge double the amount of new Endpoint Security Manager licenses, valid for one year. 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.

"N-able's new 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 Essential licenses for free, N-able is maximizing our margin potential and providing us with a great point of entry for existing clients and prospects."

N-central 7.0 also impressed the IT professionals at Core Business Services, an N-able MSP partner. "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."

"Our partners are thrilled with 7.0's feature enhancements and eager to leverage the free Essential and Endpoint Security Manager licenses as a profitable means to earn more business, differentiate their services and increase their value-add," concludes Garbutt. "We've invested millions to bring to market not only a superior technology, but also the sales training and business acumen our partners need to advance their professional services portfolio and ensure they are indeed the world's most successful MSPs."
