RapidFire Tools Renews ASCII Relationship, Delivering Training and Educational Programs to MSPs and Resellers in the SMB Space

An Enhanced Sponsorship of This Major Solution Provider Organization Includes a New Webinar on March 31 and Ongoing Educational Sessions at 2015 Events

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - Mar 30, 2015) -  RapidFire Tools Inc., the world leader in non-invasive IT network assessment tools, has renewed its sponsorship of The ASCII Group, one of the largest and oldest associations serving IT solution providers and MSPs (managed service providers) in the country. The enhanced ASCII Group relationship will include presence at each of ASCII's regional Success Summit events throughout the year, including presentations on topics such as using network assessments to increase new business and expand existing client relationships. RapidFire Tools' educational program for ASCII members will include a webinar session (register), "How To Build Or Enhance Your IT Security Offerings," to take place on March 31 at 2 p.m. EDT. The webinar is at no cost to ASCII members. The relationship will also include special discounted pricing of the Network Assessment solutions for ASCII's membership.

The ASCII Group, founded in 1984, is one of the industry's foremost communities of independent managed service providers, VARs and solution providers. The organization delivers programs, education and services to support these providers, most of whom who are selling into the robust, small- to mid-size (SMB) business marketplace. This profile aligns with RapidFire Tools' customer base, since the Network Detective modules are scaled for this vibrant market segment.

RapidFire Tools' educational opportunities for ASCII members kicked-off with a seminar at the Columbus, Ohio, ASCII IT SMB Success Summit held on March 25. The session, "Grow Your Business with IT Assessments," was conducted by RapidFire Tools' Vice President of Sales Mark Winter, and provided MSPs and VARs with a call-to-action in leveraging network assessment to capture new customers and build ongoing revenues. The upcoming March 31 webinar explores a similar theme, expanding this agenda to MSPs and solution providers beyond those who can attend the regional summit meetings.

"RapidFire Tools is committed to the independent MSP and reseller, offering a value proposition that allows providers to more quickly grow their practices through a simple-to-use, non-invasive set of tools," said Mike Mittel, CEO of RapidFire Tools Inc. "ASCII and its members are exactly the customer we look to support. The more we can educate VARs in the SMB sector on how network assessment can contribute to their development, the greater we will all succeed in the long-run. We'll continue to nurture our ASCII relationship, pursuing new ways to increase business for our mutual customers."

Network Detective is available for license at the www.rapidfiretools.com website.

About Network Detective

Network Detective is the number one non-invasive IT assessment tool, used by thousands of service providers around the world. Unlike other solutions, Network Detective includes a series of IT assessment modules including Network, Security, MS Exchange, and SQL Server assessment modules that acquire a vast amount of network data -- including assets, users, configurations, and vulnerabilities -- all without installing any software, probes, or agents. Once the scans are complete, the service provider can run the encrypted file through the Network Detective proprietary data analyzer and then select from dozens of powerful reports to generate.

In addition to these offerings, there is also a comprehensive HIPAA Compliance module available, as well as the Network Detective Inspector tool, which comes with a dedicated appliance for performing internal vulnerability scans and generating detailed Layer 2/3 diagrams.
