Lifeboat to Distribute AVG Business Managed Workplace | @CloudExpo @LifeboatVAD #SaaS #Cloud #Storage

Remote IT monitoring/management solutions gives MSPs the ability to standardize managed service delivery

Lifeboat Distribution has expanded their distribution agreement with AVG Technologies allowing distribution into the North America, Latin America and Caribbean market place. AVG Technologies began their partnership with Lifeboat Distribution i n 2010.

"Lifeboat Distribution shares our commitment to maximizing opportunities for our channel ecosystem and at the same time, effectively meeting the security needs of today's businesses," said Fred Gerritse, General Manager, AVG Business. "As a leading, specialty distributor in security, the company brings a proven track record providing our AVG Business security portfolio. We are now taking our partnership to the next level to simplify onboarding and implementation of managed security services through expansion of our AVG Managed Workplace solution. We look forward to creating a win - win scenario for our channel partners and their business customers."

AVG Managed Workplace provides a simplified service delivery platform that integrates core RMM capabilities with the service models that Managed Service Providers (MSPs) use to deliver managed security services. Designed to align with the way MSPs do business, AVG Managed Workplace streamlines and standardizes the configuration and onboarding of customer sites - saving time and driving valuable efficiencies. "We are very pleased to add the AVG Managed Workplace product to our portfolio as it will provide easy access for our MSP base to proactively manage their customer engagements," added William R. Botti, Executive Vice President of Wayside Technology Group.

Through the Managed Workplace platform, AVG has reduced the onboarding process to a few clicks for automated deployment with less room for missteps and unfulfilled service contracts. The platform lets MSPs create their own service plans to cover a group of devices within a customer site or deliver standardized service offerings right out of the box. This allows MSPs to more easily map security services to their customers' Service - Level Agreements (SLAs). In addition to three levels of service plans, they can choose from security and RMM services that include monitoring and alerting, automation, path management, AV management, backup management and reporting.
