MSPs Worldwide Win Big With N-able Technologies' N-central® 7.0 With Managed Endpoint Security

Industry Leader's $75-Million Investment and New RMM Software Fuels Channel Partners' Success; Company Reports Record-High, Worldwide Adoption of N-central 7.0

OTTAWA--(Marketwire - March 16, 2010) -  N-able Technologies®, the global leader in remote monitoring and management (RMM) software for managed service providers (MSPs) and IT departments, today announced its new, hybrid N-central® 7.0 technology with groundbreaking freemium software plus integrated endpoint security has been successfully deployed by more than half of all N-able partners worldwide.

"Within the first three weeks of N-central 7.0's availability, a record number of our MSP partners upgraded to the new platform and began actively using our new freemium software offering to build recurring revenue streams, attract new business and enhance their overall profitability and service levels," says Gavin Garbutt, N-able's President and CEO.

N-able introduced N-central 7.0 to accelerate global market adoption of managed services and fuel MSP partner growth and profitability by offering software freemiums and programs valued at more than $75 million. One of the keys to N-central 7.0's instant popularity is its fully integrated, enterprise-class managed endpoint security, which is free for one full year and thus offers tremendous savings right out of the gate. Combine that with the release's #1-rated technology and industry-first freemium, and the result is unprecedented adoption throughout N-able's partner base and the industry at large.

"Over the last 30 days, we've seen the number of partners adopting N-central 7.0 double -- making it the most successful technology launch in our company's 10-year history," Garbutt enthuses.

In addition to record-breaking adoption, N-able also reports a notable jump in the number of MSPs worldwide -- especially in North America, Europe and the U.K. -- who are making the switch from a competitive platform to N-able's N-central 7.0.

"The word is out on this game-changing technology and the MSP community is listening and responding," says Garbutt.

The performance, profitability and revenue stream potential around the new N-central 7.0 RMM technology with endpoint security and hybrid licensing are proven to help MSPs earn more business, differentiate their services and increase their value-add, continues Garbutt. "Now, with N-central 7.0 our MSP partners are able to capture, report and remotely monitor both managed and non-managed devices from one central console -- giving them the insight they need to provide exceptional service to their customers and bring more value to the table." 

PC Assistance in Little Rock, AR is one of the hundreds of N-able MSP partners reporting record year-over-year growth and profitability potential as a result of N-central. 

"In 2009, we saw an 80-percent uptick in margins -- much of which was derived from our managed services practice which is built around N-central," says Ted Clouser, Executive Vice President for PC Assistance. "N-able's N-central technology is rock solid and the new freemium offering provides us with a strong business advantage, but what is equally important is that you'll never feel alone when you team with N-able. We didn't just buy a software package with N-central, we bought into a company."

Another successful N-able partner is Twin Systems Plc, a fast-growth IT company that provides managed services to midmarket and enterprise clients throughout London and neighboring counties. According to Twin Systems founder and Chief Executive Steve Songaila, making the move to managed services and teaming with N-able has nearly doubled the company's profitability and generated recurring revenue streams. 

"With the help of N-able and use of N-central, we've successfully automated tasks that we did manually before and have extended our services options to a point of value where more than 75 percent of our company's revenues are derived from our managed services offerings," says Songaila. "With the introduction of 7.0, we are not only seeing stronger performance, but increased value in N-central and our relationship with N-able."
