Details about a new RMM release, NinjaRMM 4.6, surfaced June 10 on the software company's website. New capabilities and features include:

  1. Enhanced scripting for MSPs to simplify automated alerts, ticketing and more.
  2. API 2.0 for deeper integrations with third-party software -- including some nifty enhancements for PSA (professional services automation) integrations. (Ask NinjaRMM for the specific details).
  3. Enhanced remote access security to ensure end users can more closely permit or deny remote control sessions.
  4. More localization including support for Spanish language users.
  5. Odds and Ends: Other enhancements involve user interface refinements to further speed productivity.

NinjaRMM also vowed to maintain a "rapid release" cadence, and hinted that Linux support is also coming soon. Kodie Dower disclosed the enhancements and forthcoming Linux support in a company blog.

To be clear: NinjaRMM was not acquired. The March 2020 funding allows the company to scale R&D and other efforts, and also ensures Sferlazza retains control of the software firm’s business destiny.

RMM Software Industry Competition

NinjaRMM 4.6 arrives at a key time. Multiple RMM software providers are preparing to announce product roadmaps and new capabilities for their MSP partners.

Recent and imminent moves include:

Amid all that competition, NinjaRMM's own installed base continues to rapidly expand...
