DRAPER, Utah, Nov. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- A leader in remote monitoring and management platforms and one of the most trusted names in data backup and disaster recovery solutions have created an alliance that provides managed service providers (MSPs) a tool to better protect their clients' data and computer systems. Through this agreement, N-able by SolarWinds' innovative MSP service automation platform N-central will integrate the reliable, quick disaster recovery capabilities of StorageCraft® ShadowProtect® software.
The complete integration of these two award-winning IT solutions will begin in 2014. The agreement also allows N-able's channel partners worldwide to buy ShadowProtect software through N-able or directly from StorageCraft starting immediately.
"This alliance gives N-able partners the most reliable option for backup and disaster recovery on the market today. ShadowProtect, combined with the outstanding products offered by N-able, provides the opportunity for robust management of the entire backup and recovery process," said Jeff Shreeve, president and chief executive officer at StorageCraft Technology Corporation.
"Data backup and recovery solutions present a growing, high-value market opportunity for MSPs around the globe," says JP Jauvin, general manager, N-able. "Integrating StorageCraft's ShadowProtect software with N-central adds to our managed IT solutions portfolio and demonstrates N-able's continued commitment to listening and responding to the technology wants and business needs of our partners."
N-able's award-winning N-central platform makes it easier and more profitable for channel partners to deliver managed IT to their clients in a timely and efficient manner. The RMM software has been recognized by CRN Magazine in 2013 and 2012 as the most innovative product within its category. New features within N-central include patch management, third-party patching, flexible application compliance monitoring and rich, resource consumption of data.
Under the terms of the new agreement, N-able has licensed StorageCraft's ShadowProtect Server and ShadowProtect Desktop. In September 2013, ShadowProtect Desktop received its third consecutive Editors' Choice Award for Backup Software from PC Magazine.
ShadowProtect enables fast and reliable system and data recovery locally and near instantaneous offsite failover of servers, desktops and laptops. ShadowProtect gives small and medium-sized businesses the power and capability to effectively plan for and recover from minor and major disruptions in business operations in seconds, rather than hours or days.
