N-able Technologies(R) Enters Australian Market, Expands Global Footprint



    Global IT Software Innovator Opens Office in Australia and Announces a
    Local, Partner-Focused Training and Education Event for Managed Services

    SYDNEY, Australia, Feb. 27 /CNW Telbec/ - Expanding its global footprint,
N-able Technologies(R), the preferred supplier of remote monitoring and
management software and business transformation services for managed service
providers (MSPs), today launched its Australian operations and announced the
immediate availability of its award winning N-central(R) 6.5 software.
N-able's innovative remote management and monitoring (RMM) solution and
flexible pricing model enable IT businesses to provide enterprise-level RMM
capabilities and IT service automation solutions to small and medium-sized
businesses (SMBs).
    N-able's new Australian office is located in Sydney, and will be managed
by Regional Sales Manager Derik Poitras. The company will continue to sell
exclusively through the IT channel and is set to announce a strategic alliance
with a leading Australian distributor.
    According to Gavin Garbutt, president & CEO of N-able Technologies,
managed services are becoming absolutely essential to Australia's nearly two
million SMBs, many of which rely on IT as a foundational element to their
businesses' overall vitality.
    Market research firm IDC forecasts the Australian IT services market is
expected to reach A$15 billion by 2011. Frost & Sullivan predict that the
managed security services market alone in Australia will grow by 20 percent
annually through 2013.
    "Australia's IT services market is primed for growth and the proactive,
automated managed services capabilities found within N-central will help
ignite this demand and enhance how IT services are being delivered and
consumed not only in Australia, but across the globe," says Garbutt. "Much
like in North America and the other regions we do business in today, our
success in Australia will be measured by that of our partners. We are eager to
earn the business of Australia's solution provider and system integrator
community and bring to market the advantage and value of N-able's IT
automation and managed services technology."
    IT Leaders, a Queensland-based solution provider, partnered with N-able
to differentiate its managed services offering and help clients achieve their
business goals. "Before engaging with N-able, we were really struggling to
find a partner in Australia that could help us innovate our services business
beyond the obvious and increase our client value long-term," says Scott Jones,
general manager and owner of IT Leaders, a dynamic solution provider that
operates from two business locations and has more than 1,000 SMB clients in
South East QLD and Northern NSW. "Now with the support of N-able's team and
its comprehensive N-central 6.5 platform we're able to not only automate our
IT services, but customize our managed services offering to avoid the
commoditization that many solution providers are facing. That's where the real
partner value lies for us."

    N-able Technologies to Host First Partner Event in Australia on March 6

    To help seed the market and foster new partnerships, N-able's executive
team will host a number of complimentary training and education-focused events
and road shows throughout Australia in 2008. These events, which have proven
very successful in other parts of the world including North America and the
U.K., will provide local IT companies with insight into what it takes to
successfully sell managed services and build a profitable services business.
    N-able's first partner training and education event will be held March 6
at the Vibe Hotel in North Sydney. Attendees will receive a live demonstration
of N-central's automated features and time-saving functionality, as well as
introductory pricing options. Registration and event details can be found at
