LabTech Chooses ESET NOD32 as First Integrated Antivirus

Jun 07, 2010, 12:42 ET from LabTech Software

TOLEDO, Ohio, June 7 /PRNewswire/ -- LabTech Software, a powerful Remote Monitoring, Management and Automation solution, announced today that it now offers its channel partners ESET's award-winning NOD32 Antivirus Business Edition, a fully integrated antivirus solution.

LabTech chose ESET as the first integrated antivirus offering because of its high detection rates, low false positives and fast performance.  In twelve years of rigorous testing by Virus Bulletin, the widely-respected independent comparative testing group, ESET NOD32 has never missed an In-the-Wild virus while competing antivirus products have missed samples in the double and even triple digits.  

"Our development team appreciates how proactive the software is," said Greg Buerk, LabTech Chief Technology Officer. "ESET provides the fastest, most reliable solution for our Managed Service clients to easily implement an antivirus solution to combat computer security threats."

With the LabTech and ESET bundled offering, LabTech Software is once again demonstrating its understanding of the needs of IT service providers and MSPs.  LabTech partners want a simple one-click antivirus deployment and removal of previous antivirus products.  MSPs want to eliminate the back and forth process of quoting annual antivirus renewals with their client base and the ability to buy what they and add as they grow.  Finally, they want to make a profit selling antivirus to their client base.  

"With MSP offerings becoming more and more common, antivirus protection and management has become a must-have product in an MSP's service set," says Matt Nachtrab, CEO LabTech Software, "This bundled SAAS offering makes an MSP's service offering more sticky to their client base because the MSP owns the antivirus and makes it more difficult for them to switch to another provider."

The LabTech and ESET bundle provides a simple antivirus SAAS model that meets all of the requirements of IT service providers and MSPs.  The integrated product is available today in North America with the remaining continents to come.
