N-able Hopes To Seed MSP Market with Free Offering for Microsoft Partners

N-able Technologies this week unveiled a free, one-year subscription for North American Microsoft partners to a version of its hosted remote monitoring and management software for managed service providers.

"We are debuting N-central Express to Microsoft partners to fuel the adoption of managed services throughout North America," Gavin Garbutt, president and CEO of Ottawa, Canada-based N-able, said in a statement.

N-central Express is a stripped down version of N-able's flagship RMMS solution, the N-central software platform. Its core functionality is defined by N-able as "Web-based administration of multiple customers from a single dashboard." The software allows Microsoft partners to act as remote administrators who can update software, execute scripts, conduct disk defragmentations and diagnose and resolve problems for their customers.

The N-central Express version, which was developed and released only for Microsoft partners, will support up to 10 IP-enabled devices. More information on the program for Microsoft partners is available here.

The N-central Express launch follows a joint announcement in mid-March that N-able and Microsoft would work together on the technical integration of N-central 6.5 with Microsoft System Center Essentials 2007 and on joint sales, marketing and partner training.
