5 Channel Partner Updates: 21 October 2016
Welcome to page two of today’s update. Here are items 10 to 1.
10. Partner Program: Dunbar Security Solutions has expanded its channel partner program.
9. Atera PSA, RMM Gains Collaboration: Atera, which develops a cloud-based PSA and RMM platform, now integrates with Splashtop — a remote support platform. While many PSA-RMM suites involved mergers and acquisitions, Atera’s PSA-RMM platform was built in-house.
8. AWS Managed Services: CloudHesive and TierPoint are the latest MSPs to offer managed services and/or connection services to Amazon Web Services. CloudHesive is now an AWS partner. Also, TierPoint has launched AWS Direct Connect dedicated high-speed connectivity via TierPoint’s Seattle data center.
7. SolarWinds MSP and Risk Intelligence: SolarWinds MSP’s remote management and monitoring SaaS platform (I believe that’s the former LogicNow offering) now has full “risk intelligence” functionality built-in. Also, the company is hosting a partner gathering this week in Las Vegas, as well as a European MSP gathering in November. It’s safe to expect more SolarWinds MSP roadmap details during the European event.

5. LANDESK Upgrade: The company’s latest IT management platform, LANDESK 2016.3, provides “greater visibility” to help MSPs and their customers avoid failed audits, security threats, inconsistent policies and more, the company asserts.
4. IoT Management Integrations: CANDI’s PowerTools software is now integrated with Intel‘s Building Management Platform (Intel BMP). BMP enables cloud-based smart building applications and services. Separately, Bosch and Software AG are developing new joint services and solutions for IoT, the two companies say.
3. Why Visionary CEOs Never Have Visionary Successors: Fascinating thesis. Here’s Harvard Business Review’s spin on the topic.
2. Datto Backup Assessment Tool: Datto has partnered up with a very well-known network assessment company to build a backup assessment tool for all MSPs. We’ll share deeper details later today.
1. DattoCon Europe 2016: It’s set for next week. Roughly 300 MSPs will be on hand. Some product surprises are expected. Stick around. We may preview the event later today…
