N-able, CA Partner to Add Remote Backup to MSP Offering

N-able Technologies has signed an agreement to OEM remote backup technology from CA to extend its remote management capabilities for MSPs.

The remote network and systems management software vendor and CA have agreed to bundle CAs ARCserve D2D remote backup technology with N-ables N-central remote network and systems management platform. With the added technology, N-able is taking one step closer to making N-central a complete remote IT management solution.

As a partner, CA stood out for their pedigree, but also their technology,” said JP Jauvin, COO at N-able Technologies. We looked at a number of players to ensure we were able to bring to market the best solution at the best price for our MSP partners. The ARCserve D2D family addresses all the strategic and technical objectives we were looking for and complements our existing portfolio.”

The ARCserve D2D product is available now from N-able, and in early 2011 the company plans to introduce a fully integrated backup and offsite replication tool called Remote Backup Manager for N-central based on CA ARCserve D2D and CA ARCserve Replication.

One of our strategic objectives here at N-able is to provide a one-stop shop for MSPs and midmarket customers. A strong component of our partner value proposition is the ability to create managed services products that address market needs and provide 100 percent IT coverage. Our new Remote Backup Manager is one of those technologies,” Jauvin said.

All remote backup offerings are being sold as an add-on to existing or new N-central 7.0 NSM software platform licenses, but N-able plans to offer the bundle as a free download for 30 days between Oct. 1 and Dec. 1 in an effort to spur adoption, the company said.

For MSPs, the new technology represents a new service and revenue stream, Jauvin said. With this new offering, our partners can cost-effectively deliver more comprehensive remote management services to their customers and address the needs of the marketplace for managed data protection and recovery services.”
