Leading Managed Services Innovator Receives Top Honor for Helping MSP Partners Solve Today's Most Pressing IT Problems

OTTAWA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/05/12 -- N-able Technologies, the global leader in remote monitoring and management (RMM) and service automation software, today announced it has earned the 2012 Tech Innovator award in the managed services category from UBM Channel's CRN magazine. The annual Tech Innovator Award recognizes industry-leading IT companies in 18 different categories that have used original methods or technologies to deliver new, innovative products and channel partner support.

CRN Test Center Editors reviewed hundreds of technology products deployed over the past year to determine one manufacturer in each category that went about business differently to create completely new and unique channel opportunities. Each of the companies celebrated on this year's list recently implemented innovative methods to bridge the gap between current problems and solutions facing channel executives today.

"We're honored to receive this prestigious technical accolade from CRN, and dedicate the win to our MSP partners who play an integral role in our product road map and in many cases ignite the innovations that continue to define and differentiate our N-central platform," says JP Jauvin, President and COO, N-able Technologies. "It's been a banner year for us and our partners, and with the upcoming release of N-able's new mobile device management it's only going to get better. N-central is a game-changing technology for the managed services industry. These accolades, combined with the growing success of our channel partners, serve as undisputed testimonies to the business and technology advantages MSPs gain by teaming with N-able."

N-able's N-central 9.0 platform continues to earn accolades as the industry's number one RMM and MSP service automation platform, including the prestigious CRN Test Center Approved designation. Adoption of N-able's N-central 9.0 platform continues to build with the vast majority of the RMM provider's existing partner base now leveraging the new software.

Additionally, N-able's sales team is reporting record numbers of MSPs worldwide are switching from competitive platforms to N-able because of the technical innovations found within N-central 9.0 including Automation Manager, the MSP Technician's Runbook and the new N-central Report Manager 4.0.

"For the past 10 years, the CRN Test Center has honored companies and products that take an original and inventive approach to solving today's IT problems," said Kelley Damore, vice president and editorial director for UBM Channel. "With product offerings ranging from cloud deployment to digital signage, this year's Tech Innovators are helping their channel partners solve particular problems for clients, ultimately differentiating themselves as a trusted adviser."

The 2012 Tech Innovators were selected from a large pool of nominations, with winners and runners-up selected by the editors of CRN and the CRN Test Center. The Tech Innovator award winners will be mentioned in the December 2012 issue of CRN Magazine or at www.crn.com.

This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it’s a mix of architectural style...
