GFI MAX® partners’ top priorities for 2012 include cloud computing, preparing their businesses for growth and introducing more managed services to customers

Dundee, UK – Feb 1st, 2012 – GFI Software today announced that more than 5,000 managed services providers (MSPs) are using GFI MAX RemoteManagement™ to support more than 65,000 networks worldwide. This more than doubles the GFI MAX® customer base over the last two years, with strong growth in the UK, US and internationally. These new milestones solidify the position of GFI MAX as a market-leading managed services platform with a scale and breadth of services that very few in the industry can match.

“We’ve successfully grown our partner base by focusing on what MSPs need to profitably grow their businesses,” said Dr. Alistair Forbes, general manager of the GFI MAX Business Unit. “That starts with an easily deployed RMM platform, competitive pricing and simple billing, and a commitment to enhancing the solution through the integration of new services to create incremental revenue opportunities for our partners.”

Through the GFI MAX dashboard – with which MSPs remotely manage all of their customers’ networks in one consolidated view – MSPs can also deploy managed antivirus, patch management and vulnerability scanning, as well as remotely controlling desktops and workstations. These capabilities will be further complemented by the forthcoming launch of an integrated online backup solution, as well as the integration of the GFI MAX hosted email security and archiving solution, and the Monitis cloud services monitoring technology. The majority of MSPs using GFI MAX are using one or more of these services in addition to the remote network monitoring, management and remediation provided by GFI MAX RemoteManagement.

“GFI MAX makes it easy for MSPs to deliver new services like managed antivirus to our customers,” said Martinho Galante, chief executive of GFI MAX reseller NJ Computer Group. “There’s no longer a need to deploy a solution from a third party and lose time managing another console, logging into someone’s portal or reconciling your invoicing with multiple providers each month. Our customers need these services, and GFI MAX is the most profitable way for us to deliver them.”

GFI MAX, with its SaaS-based delivery model, has always been the easiest solution to get up and running, but an increasing proportion of the customer base represents larger MSPs managing hundreds of servers and thousands of workstations. Overall, the number of devices under management using GFI MAX has doubled in the last year and the growth rate is still accelerating.

“We’re experiencing very exciting growth around the world,” added Forbes. “Our partners are focused on growing their businesses in 2012, and we’re going to continue delivering the services and capabilities that help them do so.”
