"Our partnership with one or the world's leading software companies is good news for our customers.

"The maintenance of 24 x 7 is becoming increasingly critical to businesses. This, coupled with a decrease in skilled technology professionals, means that the MSP model is becoming more and more attractive, added David Ball, VP Channel Marketing, EMEA at CA. "NetworkIT 's comprehensive network management means that Deverill will achieve its' goal of providing its customers with browser to mainframe network management essential to eBusiness."
