DURHAM, North Carolina – August 28, 2020 – SolarWinds (NYSE:SWI), a leading provider of powerful and affordable IT management software, today announced it is a gold winner in the Best Managed Security Service Vendor category in the 2020 ChannelPro® Readers’ Choice Awards.
Additionally, SolarWinds MSP earned three bronze awards:
• Best Remote Monitoring and Management (RMM) Vendor
• Best PSA Vendor
• Best Integrated RMM/PSA Vendor
“We’re truly honored to receive this recognition from ChannelPro SMB’s readers,” said John Pagliuca, president, SolarWinds MSP. “Receiving a gold award for Best Managed Security Service Vendor really speaks to the commitment and value we deliver to our partners to help keep their business and customers secure as the variety and growth of security threats such as ransomware and malicious attacks continue to rise. The goal is to give our partners confidence in our support and trusted solutions—while helping them turn security into a differentiator. We sincerely thank all of those who voted for us as well as the ChannelPro SMB staff.”
Readers of ChannelPro-SMB and the ChannelPro Network were invited to participate in the IT channel’s only SMB-focused Readers’ Choice Awards by casting their votes via the publication’s website for the vendors, distributors, and professional organizations with the most SMB- and partner-friendly solutions, services, or programs in the channel today. For each of the 50 categories, readers were asked to select the option that best satisfies the unique business requirements, work styles, and budgets of their small and midsize business clients, as well as those that best serve their own partner organizations. The multiple-choice survey, which provided space for write-in responses, was fielded from March to May 2020 and drew participation from more than 1,500 channel VARs, MSPs, integrators, system builders, and IT consultants. Gold, Silver, and Bronze winners are named in each category.
In 2020, security continues to be a key focus for SolarWinds MSP; alongside its product portfolio, it provides resources and support that go beyond technology. It recently launched the SolarWinds Trust Center, which provides its partners with easy access to a wide range of educational resources; legal, privacy, and compliance information; product information; and also includes a direct link to file an incident report and information on how to obtain copies of certifications. In addition, the MSP Institute—a learning portal within the SolarWinds Customer Success Center—gives SolarWinds partners access to a variety of courses, including a security series. Finally, boot camps led by the Head Nerds help MSPs uncover concepts and practical applications for growing their security portfolio.
“I do not think the channel has ever experienced a year like this one. The pandemic and its aftereffects have roiled the economy and our businesses, yet channel partners have responded by making adjustments on the fly to keep their staffs and customers safe and productive,” says Michael Siggins, president and publisher of ChannelPro-SMB and the ChannelPro Network. “Now more than ever, our readers rely on partnerships with vendors, distributors, and professional associations to help them stay competitive and grow their bottom line. Against this backdrop, our readers give recognition to the brands they rely on most. These results give us a unique indicator of the most trusted brands that power the channel today and into tomorrow—whatever tomorrow may bring.”
