N-able by SolarWinds® Awarded 5-Star Rating in CRN's 2014 Partner Program Guide

N-able's Selection to Elite 5-Star Rating Six Years in a Row Underscores Its Longstanding Dedication to Partner Success and Channel Enablement

OTTAWA, ON--(Marketwired - Apr 9, 2014) - N-able by SolarWinds®, a global leader in remote monitoring and management (RMM) and service automation software, today announced it has been awarded a 5-Star rating in the CRN 2014 Partner Program Guide in recognition of its IT channel industry influence and dedication to managed service provider (MSP) success. This is the sixth year in a row that N-able has earned the prestigious 5-Star rating.

The annual CRN directory is the definitive listing of technology vendors that service solution providers or provide products through the IT channel. The 5-Star Partner Program rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.

To determine the 2014 5-Star recipients, The Channel Company's research team assessed each vendor's application based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication.

"It's an incredible honor for N-able to once again receive this elite designation from CRN. To be recognized for the value that we bring to our MSPs -- both from a technical and business enablement perspective -- is a reflection of our ongoing dedication to the IT channel and our partners," says JP Jauvin, general manager, N-able by SolarWinds. "This is a big win for N-able as it signifies the trust our partners have placed in us."

Since its May 2013 acquisition by SolarWinds, N-able has continued its tradition of success as an elite RMM and MSP service automation provider, earning a number of industry accolades for its technology innovation and channel leadership. N-able's focus on fueling growth and profitability for its MSPs is evidenced by the ongoing advancements to its N-central RMM platform, with the February 2014 launch of N-central 9.3 bringing to market Security Manager | AV Defender powered by Bitdefender®; Backup Manager powered by StorageCraft®; maintenance windows; integrated RSS feed; and an integrated MSP Runbook®.

"Solution providers have a lot of choices when it comes to selecting vendor partners. Identifying the right vendor, with the right technologies, and the right approach can make all the difference," said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. "Our annual Partner Program Guide and 5-Star rating recognizes the very best channel programs available in the market today to help solution providers determine which vendor delivers the best partner elements for their individual business goals."
