Managed services providers
Four managed services software vendors are joining forces to help the channel better integrate their products.
The Kaseya Alliance Program matches Kaseya, a managed services automation vendor, with these three charter members: Autotask, which sells hosted business operations software; Catbird Networks, a managed security provider; and Tigerpaw Software, a CRM developer. Kaseya plans to add an application program interface to the alliance later this year to make it easier for the vendors to work together.
In a press release issued this week, Dan Shapero, Kaseya’s senior vice president of marketing, said the alliance will improve the vendors’ service and support. The release also quotes two channel partners, Computronix and Infinity Business Systems, who said the alliance will make it easier for them to integrate the vendors’ products for their customers.
This week has been a busy one for Catbird, which announced its buzz-generating VM security appliance, V-Agent, on Monday.
