N-able CEO Gavin Garbutt Named a Top Newsmaker of 2010 by CDN Magazine

Managed Services Industry Innovator Continues to Drive Partner Success in IT Automation Market

OTTAWA--(Marketwire - January 6, 2011) -  N-able Technologies®, the global leader in remote network and systems management (NSM) software for IT departments and managed service providers (MSPs), today announced its CEO Gavin Garbutt was recognized by Computer Dealer News (CDN) as a "Top 25 Newsmaker of the Year" for 2010. 

Garbutt's selection to this elite group by one of Canada's leading IT publications was made as part of CDN's annual review of the most important trends shaping the channel and the leaders driving those trends. Executives named to the group were selected on the basis of their impact on the industry throughout 2010. 

CDN devoted a special segment to the newsmakers and Garbutt's profile can be viewed online at:

"I am extremely honored to receive this recognition from CDN and be named one of the top newsmakers in Canada," says Garbutt. "This particular accolade points to our growing industry leadership and the success of our channel efforts. It also makes note of the outstanding performance of our partners, who are the lifeblood of our organization and the driving force behind our continued growth year after year."

Garbutt's selection follows another record year for N-able and its MSP partners. In 2010, the success of N-able's partners contributed to a more than 70 percent increase in deployment of N-able's N-central NSM technology across the small business market.

Simultaneously, new and incremental business soared for many N-able MSPs as a result of the company's freemium model and N-central hybrid licensing. The powerful and proven duo makes it much easier for MSPs to extend managed IT services to their end users and prospects without any risk or financial commitment and offer greater flexibility of service and terms. 

"N-able, along with the whole managed services sector, had a tremendous year in 2010. Gavin Garbutt's efforts to build a strong channel network for N-able did not go unnoticed by the CDN editorial team and the readership across Canada," says Paolo Del Nibletto, editor, CDN.
