OTTAWA--(Marketwire - Oct 25, 2012) - N-able Technologies, the global leader in remote monitoring and management (RMM) and service automation software, today announced it earned top honors in the inaugural SMB Nation "Hot Shot Awards" in the RMM product category. The announcement was made on the final day of SMB Nation's Fall conference in Las Vegas last week, where award winners were recognized for making a difference for value-added resellers (VARs), managed service providers (MSPs), and IT consultants in the small to midsized business (SMB) market.
The Hot Shot Awards honored vendors in 11 different technology categories including RMM, and the vendor nomination and voting process was conducted over a one-month period from August 15 to September 15, 2012. Once the preliminary voting period closed, a panel of SMB channel experts reviewed the ballots and made a final determination based on the vendor's product diversity, uniqueness, ability to enhance the SMB industry, cost efficiency, ability to overcome technology obstacles, and impact on SMB IT solution provider operations.
"We're honored to have N-central 9.0 singled out as best in class by the distinguished members of the SMB Nation community," says Gavin Garbutt, CEO of N-able. "It truly means so much when the votes come directly from those who use and have experience with our products. N-central 9.0 continues to earn recognition as the industry's number one RMM and MSP service automation platform, and the Hot Shot Award is another great win that not only demonstrates the loyalty within N-able's partner base, but also provides insight into why more MSPs are making the switch to N-able."
"We salute N-able and all our winners as having passed a high bar of community scrutiny," says Harry Brelsford, Founder of SMB Nation. "This is truly an 'earned award' and not just an honorary title. We look forward to continuing the Hot Shot Awards next year at SMB Nation Fall 2013, to be held October 10-12, 2013 in Vegas!"
"The Hot Shot Award adds to a highly successful year for N-able and further demonstrates the value technicians and business owners alike place on our technology and business enablement resources," says JP Jauvin, President and COO, N-able Technologies. "We've had a great year to date, and the innovation and enablement is only going to get better."
